Game On v 3.x Discussion
After six years of pushing the gamification envelope, we've reached a new level. Game On 3.x has been (mostly) rewritten from the ground up by Forest Hoffman, a Mac Lab alumni now four years removed from high school. After years of working for free—or for pennies per hour if one counts the few donations he's received—Forest has decided to move on to new and more lucrative projects. I can't thank him enough for all he's given us.
I have numerous current students working in code but none competent enough to add significant new features in Game On (which has, thanks to Forest, become more complex and powerful than in my wildest dreams).
Forest has volunteered to repair any bugs we find in v3.x so I encourage all of you to test, test, test before the school year begins because this is a freebie. As for new features, Forest has agreed to submit a bid for the work. It is unreasonable for us to expect a 21-year-old to continue to work for free. Perhaps we can all pitch in for features we all want. Or not. Your call.
