Ok, ok, so most of you think curling is an odd little sport, or you've never heard of it. That doesn't mean there aren't a million of us curlers in Canada plus a few others all around the world. Do I sound defensive? Just not gettin' any respect lately... I'm almost finished my first game called Granite. It's a curling simulation. You got a problem with that? Oops, again with the defensiveness... The website is up at www.fifty1.com. John Van Vliet Fifty1 Software Edited by - fifty1 on 11/29/00 12:24:38 AM

Me too, but EA Sports pretty much has the hockey market tied up. That''d be a tough market to test with my first game.

Go Oilers Go!

I''m no curler, hockey player/fan myself but the game looks awesome. Nice screen shots. Let fellow hosers know when your demos are ready eh.

Amen, Go Oilers Go!
I was born in Edmonton, but I moved out of Canada during second grade, so I never really got a chance to try curling. However, I have played Nagano Olympics'' version for the N64, and I must say it was quite fun. I''ll look forward to a demo of your game (I can''t really afford to purchase many games, so I have to survive off of the demos if I play them at all. )

LOL, if you ever publish, you should put this text on the box, and nothing else.

Thanks for all your feedback.

aegrimonia, it took about six months of part-time work while I experimented with Java, moved to Visual C++, learned OpenGL, and generally thrashed, followed by another four months of full-time work that still included a lot of thrashing.

I just finished play-testing the AI. That''s hard stuff -- much harder than I expected. Now I just have to polish the GUI and I''m done!

All you non-curlers should give it a try when it''s ready. I''l let you know.

John
