You're weird. You know that, don't you?

I can tell who the 'Emperor and Dictator for Life' is, but who is the Treasurer?
In response to Flick (#4)
Looks like Mike Heasley, or something.
But... but... where are all of the lines that make it non-photocopiable?

I foresee an immediate problem!
In response to Nadrew (#5)
Yup...that's probably it... I noticed while it was loading (and I confirmed it by viewing the image properties)...that it was loaded from "mheasley.byond.com"...

So that name is most likely "Mike Heasley"...

Which, I would venture to guess... Is Mapster's real life name...
Excellent, dude.

Wow... I can picture the immediate impact on the book-selling world:

Heh. Some interesting comments. For the bored and curious, I made that graphic yesterday for a new game I thought of making recently (actually it will be the fourth in the Shape series). Yes, it's another clone, but as with the others, it will be my own distinct take on a very common game idea. But enough of the vaporware announcements - back to work, or none of them will get finished!

Here's a very rough first cut at the graphics:

Have I missed something -- is there a second in the series yet?

Anyway, you are definitely killing with your game layout! ShapeShifter inspired us to make Birdland much more arcade-looking than it would have otherwise.

Damn, you got my hopes up. Your title made me think that you were going to grace is with a picture of the $50,000 Airbuck bill.
In response to Air Mapster (#10)
That looks really cool!

Fantastic!

But you're not going to force us to move the Dantom server onto a riverboat to support finance your online gambling empire ... are you?

Nope, games 2 and 3 are still in the idea phase, but they should be pretty quick to whip up when I get the time. Like ShapeShifter, they'll be clones of existing puzzle games, plus my own wacky additions. I kind of like the idea of doing a series like this - all of the games will have a similar look and feel, plus I don't have to spend nearly as much time developing new graphics!

For now, the plan is to finish up a couple of libraries (with corresponding BYONDscape columns) so that I can finish ShapeShifter, beta test ShapeShifter, do any necessary tweaking to the gameplay based on test feedback, and release. By that time, half the code and graphics will be practically done for the next couple of games in the series, so I hope to knock them out quickly. Then there's the 5th game which will tie them all together neatly. And finally, Una, Hog and Dung-Man will get their long-overdue upgrades to add them to the new Shape/Gaming universe! By that time I figure it'll be about 2005... ;-)
