Accepting BitCoin As Payment And Its Implications

04 February 2014 - 09:12 PM

I, like a lot of people on this website, develop games. I was thinking about different payment options, and was considering PayPal. I don't want anything complicated where I have to make calls, verify tax ID number, register locally, etc. I just want a simple system, and I'm not sure if PayPal is what I want.


Would BitCoin be a suitable payment system for a game? The game itself is completely free, but to get a premium account you have to go to the website and register for around 5 USD. This provides a bunch of cool stuff I won't go into. I am just wondering what you think about BitCoin as payment and the legal/customer satisfaction implications of using BitCoin. What about hybrid BitCoin/PayPal? Are there any other CC services that would be relevant to me?

How Are "Game Jams" Productive At All?

28 September 2013 - 06:09 PM

I have never been to a game jam, but from what I gather you sit there and roll out a small game with other people in a (continuous) period of 24-48 hours, usually on a weekend. How can someone stay productive to do anything, let alone code a game, when they haven't slept in over a day? If you have successfully participated in one of these events, please shed some light for me.

Can Water Filter Air?

01 September 2013 - 10:33 AM

If I had air with relatively large non-hazardous "contaminants" (airborne oils, dust, pollen, etc.) and I pushed that air through a layer of warm water, would that air pass through while the impurities remained in the water?


If not, what if the water had a strong negative electric charge (like static)? I realize that it would only repel things that had a negative charge, but would it cling to impurities with neutral and/or positive charges?
