    The problem with putting a purple hat on your character is that is basically a big sign that says “shoot me”. :) Now, if you could put the purple hat on somebody else, then I could sell you different hats for everybody at the party!
    There are currently no plans for hats in SpyParty. :)

    Gratuitous Stats Battles!

    I put up the stats from the first day:

    http://www.spyparty.com/2011/05/12/beta-data/

    Some fun images in the post, and you can now quantitatively visualize @notch's twitter influence.

    Thats great. You are a great person, you have this skill to respect everyone, not matter what. So is great to see you having this success.

    At first I was a bit, well.. the webpage of the game is too "serius". Is more the webpage of a scientist of the CERN talking about budgets and radiators, than about a game.

    Not only you are a good person, but your are advancing gaming for all of us. This experiment of you, is like I+D for everyone, big and small game studios. If you accidentally find a awesome gameplay, not doubts everyone will jump to make a game using such gameplay, but bigger, badder graphics, huge budget.

    I was wondering how you could access your public, or what is your public. But seems the indie networks are mature enough nowdays, so you can make a game, and get in the right channels (websites like tigsource), and from there, people will talk about your game if theres something newsworthy in it.


    Do SpyGame works online, on internet?
    Something that can be interesting, is to create a website, so players can meet. Maybe some basic "IM" system, so the game can be minimized, but pooling the server for players. If you game want to be social, you can actually built some social features in the game. Things so player A (that don't have friends that want to play the game) meet player B (that don't have friends that want to play the game).

    It can also be interesting, maybe you don't want to go there, what could be the potential of your game for trolling.
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tSH_vrBJxhk
    If you don't want to go there, at least maybe let the game be "abusable" in a way that can be fun for people creating hilarious trolling videos. That way, well... hundreds will play your game, but millions will enjoy your game trought youtube videos. I think, IMHO, is a good idea to make something in a game that is sexy for journalist, and something that is sexy for trollers.

    Sorry about my poor english.

    Currently drowning in server code madness. I'm currently just concentrating on getting the first 10 people invited, and not worrying about making it scalable yet, just to stay sane. Hopefully a couple weeks, but then again, I also said mid-June. I'm not known for my estimation accuracy!

    Wait..I thought the netcode was just the spy and 1 party person? Is it not peer to peer? You're going to actually run a spy party server?

    There's a lobby, and all kinds of other stuff. I'm (foolishly) trying to make the beta a somewhat modern networked game environment. More details here on the insanity:

    Is it too late to get on the beta test bandwagon for this? :) Been sorta following it loosely through the forums here for a while. Would love to give you a write up once the game releases Chris :)

    I posted some info on the blog about pricing for the Early-Access Beta. The credits idea was totally stolen from qt3's own DanVersson!

    SpyParty Early-Access Beta Pricing

    I still have so much work to do, and PAX fast approaches...yikes...

    I'll do a batch of qt3/bf folks soon after I've done some off the main list (people in this thread pm me the email address you used to sign up for the beta (bf people can pm me there, I'm checker as well)). I gotta start inviting people off the signup list in order or they'll kill me for playing favorites!

    Cheers Chris, I think I signed up really early but I can't find my reply email. The site says I'm already confirmed though.

    Ack, serling getting an invite through the normal script and posting here reminded me I never send the invites to the folks who PM'ed me, which included serling! So, JPR, pilonv1, rossm, and Anti-Bunny, check your email!

    If anybody else wants an invite, PM me the email you used to sign up for the beta.

    Thanks!

    That's a great offer, count me in! PM sent. I thought I'd be waiting until 2013 to be playing this game. The youtube beta tutorial video really showed off the game and made me want to play it.
