A change to the PBBG scene

Postby hallsofvallhalla » Tue Dec 05, 2017 11:21 am

So I have really been thinking about current indie PBBGs and when compared to the rest of the game industry how far they have advanced and how they are still pigeon holed to desktop browsers for the most part.
Kal, Kyle, and I liek to chat it up on slack and were talking about a few things, one would be a PBBG engine built around deploying to all sorts of devices. Phones, tablets, ect.. Another was to change the entire scene and introduce sockets and possibly using a python backend. Give it a fresh feel of new features and a easy way to introduce sockets with some real power. Just wanting to start some conversations around whats missing from the PBBG world if anything. Where is its next big fad. What is the community looking for... Ect...

Which slack do you guys use? Maybe I could join ;) Also personally I would then use a .Net core backend allowing us to host it on basically any OS (yes I tried on Linux it works fine and easily).

Kind of on topic (mainly about Slack). If we do a community project do you think it would be wiser to use Gitter.im or to stick with Slack? The cool thing about Slack is custom integrations that Gitter lacks

All of the communications apps I am having to use for my job and personal projects is crazy. Last I counted 8 of them, not including email, texting and phone calls. And my job just added Microsoft Teams to try it out (MS Teams is basically MS's Slack competitor) :lol:

Yeah it defintiely has gotten silly. Every time I find a game to play online people are using some new voice app that I have to download to communicate with
