What’s new ? … everything! nah I’m kidding :p
Just came back from the Startup Weekend Strasbourg where I showed and worked on a concept of self-managed game producing cooperative; with co-working space, a minimum wage when working for an internal project, parallel ressource sharing and project participation (you work on multiple projects at the same time, to guarantee your beeing paid more than once a year), and hats. Hats FTW.
And guess what, I didn’t win any of the prizes (the winning team deserved it, they were real close to the BIG money, like disabled peoples and sick old peoples and pharmaceutical industries…) but hell did I win a lot of ideas, met new friends and regained my coding mojo!
So returning to Alcyon, what’s going on?
I had the time (54 hours non-stop) to talk about the project with my colombian friend/associate who came to defend our ideas from the other side of the Rhein (intern at Bosch at the moment), and we think it’s time to get money out to get better graphs and then begin to get our project known! We made a little website (not yet fully fonctional) on the alcyon-infinity.com domain name and will be accepting newsletter inscription soon. I plan on contacting Rock Paper Shotgun with a small demo and overhauled graphs to get some attention… and maybe begin a crowd funding campaign (with perks and hats for buyers) to get moar an moar beautiful graphs from my graph friend.
On the code side, I tweaked the AI with some random goodness and it’s working out real cool, I’m currently beginning the work on the fittable objects (pimpin’ yer ship!) and the market and black market will come!
So stay tuned!
