Trex on Facebook


After much angst and brain bending, I think I can finally announce that this game is ready to play.

I've had this idea floating about for a while, but I couldn't get much help, and I didn't want to hire freelancers since improving the game later on will prove costly.  A genius programming friend is apparently into physics right now.  Quote:

"I'm understanding how the world works!"

Good for you sir, good for you.  My other programming friend has no time, so the idea died early on.

Recently though, I've found myself hitting my mid-life crisis, so I decided to take on this task alone.  I've made a card game called Trex, which is pretty famous in certain dowania circles (it's pronounced Trix in Kuwait.)  Apparently, it's even more famous in Jordan or something, I don't know.  Holy lord, this is supposed to be a professional announcement?image


The game is integrated into Facebook, so you only need a Facebook account to play.  You can find the rules of the game here on this wiki.  There's still a bunch of features I want to put in, and hopefully they will come in the following weeks.

I'll admit, I had a blast making this.  The whole card animation and effects thing was really enjoyable, even if it involved invoking my limited math skills.  Oh and don't get me started on the bots!

The one thing I really need is an artist.  Most of the artwork is public domain stuff I found on the net, but I really wish I could get my own art done.  Heck, I don't even have a background.

Anyhow, give the game a try!  I'd love to hear your feedback, feature requests, and bugs.  There's plenty of stuff that needs to be done, and I'll try my best to catch up.

Thanks goes to 3baid for the Trex icon :p  I do like it!


To those of you who play, enjoy!

My brother is an animator, and would like to create his own video games. Maybe you can convince him to do a Facebook game (and get him to do the artwork for your game along the way :P)

I'm checking out the game now. I didn't read the rules. I'm just gonna fiddle around with it... :D

It's taking AGES to download my friends list. Are you sure that's all it's doing? Maybe it's trying to access more info than it needs to... :P

Haidar: Thanks :p No it's just accessing your friend user IDs to see if any of them are online. I'm not sure why you're the only one who has these issues! I'm going to need you for debugging :p

He's an animator? That's actually pretty cool. I'll bug you for details soon.

Faith: Well it's just a card game :p what's more interesting is the hilarious bugs I keep finding. People played cards they didn't own!

My father always says the world works in three steps forwards and two steps back, what examples could you give of a good case study of this?

I have been taking splenda for several months. Just lately I realized that the moles on arms and especially legs had increased.By a sudden impulse while visiting my doctor for something else I showed the increased moles to him on one leg. He pointed out that two of the moles did not look good, he sent one small part of one of them to the lab and it came back as pre- cancerous. Both moles have been removed since. No more splenda for me. etuxoh etuxoh - moncler vest coats.
