Went to a local software hack group. They've got some ruby on rails project they are using for their group work right now. I pitched in and learned ruby/rails on the fly to add some stupid routes. It was awesome.

Came home, shook out ruby/rails on the mac, got postgres.app installed, got my BEAST game's pages shook out a bit better.

I need to get some sort of task tracker rolling for BEAST, I think.

I am making a virtual pet game. It has these concepts:

* isn't brain-dead stupid

* doesn't require nannying... much

* will have CUTE PICTURES OF MY CAT as the first virtual pet.

* will be something that geeky people would like playing for a long time.

* Targeted at FirefoxOS

* HAS CUTE CAT PICTURES OF CUTENESS.

My deadline (self-set) is Septemberish.

I want to give away some tester accounts for this game.

Full disclosure. The initial business model is: after we're generally happy, I'll launch and then people can buy "base game" for $0.99, which gets you bugfixes and minor upgrades "forever" (i.e., until the server stops and or the business looks permanently cash-flow negative). I won't shut it down without notice. Testers will keep their free accounts.

I'm going to try to figure out how to get a month-to-month cash flow going, but that's not going to be for the basic game. Ads aren't going to happen unless the advertiser can present a compelling case that my users really really want to see their ads in their game, messing their UX up.

The name of the game is BEAST. The possibilities: only cute.
