I have been working on the Force.com for some time now and one thing that really helps me learn the platform is pushing the envelope and seeing where it tears. To this end I have decided to build a game on it.
Not anything fancy, like a first person shooter, just a turn based strategy game, like Risk.
Or more accurately, like Outreach.
Most of those old board games were little more than databases anyway, so I figured this would be an easy project. In fact the hardest part I anticipated was creating a hex map in CSS, but that turned out to be a two hour chore.
Ergo i anticipate smooth sailing from here on out. I am posting this here for anyone interested in following my progress as i take the Force.com platform that, to the best of my knowledge, it hasn't gone before, and also for anyone interested in helping me beta test the game when I am done.
