I''m Jim Dutton, with LeisureSoft, Inc.
We''ll shortly be rolling out a web playtest of a game that was a PBM in the 80''s, and a PBEM on AOL in the mid 90s.
The game is called "Star Throne, a Game of Power". The game system itself is fully developed and quite mature. This playtest will be for the purpose of checking out new interface components for the web rollout.
You can check out the game and sign up for the playtest at :
EVERYONE who signs up for the playtest will get to play a complete game, and it will be completely free. (We haven''t yet decided if the production rollout will be free, or involve small fees to play, but the playtest is free.)
This is a multi-player, turn based strategy game, and in the many years this game has been played, there has never been anything else quite like it. Check it out if you don''t believe that. ;-)
If you have any questions or comments, you can contact me at JimDutton@LeisureSoft.com.
Programmers/Designers : we may at some point in the very near future want to contract a sharp individual to design an AI for a "home" version of this game. If interested, please contact me at the Email address given above, and include your qualifications for programming an AI for a complex strategy game.
