Two Requests

  1. Anyone who can spare twenty minutes and would like to beta-test a super-secret* silverlight game, please email me at and I'll pass on the link. It would really help me out to get a fresh set of eyes on it, and to get a feel for performance on a range of machines.
  2. Bit of a long shot, this: There was an anonymous poster a few months back who was in the process of writing their own pathfinding algorithm, using boxes similar to XAGE. If you could get in touch, It'd be great to pick your brains over how you implemented the line-of-site functionality I remember seeing in your youtube videos. XAGE's pathfinding is only about 75% of where I'd like it to be.
* Well, not that secret if you've been paying any sort of attention in the last six months.

Hi. Tried it on my PC, which is about 6 years old and a bit rubbish. Worked OK in Firefox, didn't have any problems and completed it. Didn't try IE. Shame Silverlight doesn't work for Chrome because that's my preferred browser. It seemed to work but was glitchy with the mouse and so unplayable.

Thanks Dave. It's odd that Chrome caused problems for you. It isn't officially supported by Silverlight yet, though Chrome's my default browser and I've yet to have any problems with it. Weird.
