Do you know of any other open card projects?
No, I'm not aware of any more open projects, but would love it if we could manage to compile or maintain a list of them.
As fenrislorsrai points out above, WTactics and whatever other game may have more in common thematically and/or when it comes to target groups. With that said and agreed upon, it wasn't my main thought when I suggested that we try to co-work in whatever way possible.
My thoughts went to the open card game scene
, one which seems to be very very small on the internet (not to mention beyond it), and especially so if we only pay attention to games that are actually legal
and don't have copyrights issues or other legal problems associated with them.
That's why I still think people on the scene should try to stick together in whatever ways that work for them. Bluntly put: Finding the games is hard, finding the people that contributes to them is even harder. By building up some kind of network we would make these processes easier, for the benefit of both players and developers.
As a way to start this networking to the benefit of all parties on the scene I have fired up a site dedicated to the cause on http://www.opencgs.org/
The goal is to at least assemble and maintain an up to date list of all free & open source card games, as well as invite representatives of each such game to the site by giving one account to each project, enabling each game project to write (copy & past?) news about their game, thoughts on development and what not.
I'd love it if you guys would want an account. Please email me the password you would want in such a case, and you'd get login etc from me and the freedom to utilize the site in any way you want. Hopefully you would at the very least write a presentation of your nice game, and not rely on me doing it for you
(But I would if there wouldn't be any interest in here)
