Last month I opened Track King ( http://www.trackking.org ) , an online game in which you manage a Horse Racing stable. The game is *FREE* to register/play, and operates totally within your browser. The game is built in PHP/MySQL with a smattering of javascript, and uses a Flash app to render XML into a visual output of each race. In the game you can buy/sell horses on Auction, breed and train horses, hire and fire jockeys and general staff, juggle your finances, compete in 'League' style racing, Cups and Stakes races, bet virtual money on horses, or just generally socialise using forums, blogs, guestbooks and ingame mail inbetween your racing engagements and management decisions! The game is easy to learn, yet will take time to slowly build your stable up, progressing through "Leagues" at any one of hundreds of tracks around the world in a bid to become one of the most prestigious stable. The game is open 24 hours a day, and there's always some racing or training updates about to happen. It is a very rich environment, and makes the perfect "office toy" - it's the type of thing that you can spend as little as a few minutes a week, or as long as you want on other weeks, in order to manage your stable effectively. It's designed so that you can be reasonably successful with a minimal amount of "targeted" action, or be obsessively competitive by researching opposition thoroughly!! Feel free to come visit the site, register and play a little, and if you enjoy what you see maybe you'll invite a friend or two or add it to your site? With an addictive product like this, I'm really hoping that time and word of mouth will substitute for spending thousands of dollars on marketing.... Hope to see you online soon!
