There are a ton of games on BYOND. Cool. But what is with this trend of people publishing chat games? And not even good ones. It's like straight up input -> output and that's it. Examples? Forsaken Box and BYOND Coding Explorer.
(Little fun fact about coding explorer. It started as a game that was pretty much a browser. So you used a browser to find a game, that was a browser. I feel an Inception joke here...)
Yes, chat is pretty important in games if you plan to have multiplayer, but there should be like, a game. Do you really need a BYOND game to chat with your development team? You organize this on MSN with your firends. "Okay, who's going to host the chat game so that we can get to work?" while completely IGNORING the fact that MSN supports the function you trying to create. In addition, MSN allows easy sending of files! You can show your screen so much faster to 12 people on MSN than to do it in BYOND (as far as chat games have gone).
And even if you did need a chat game for this; there are plenty of chat games on BYOND that are decent! Chattie and Icon Ultima come to mind.
Seriously. What is this I don't even.
(Note: For those of you that enjoy my more serious posts, there's one coming tonight if I remember to type it. If not, tomorrow morning.)
