Thousand Parsec is both an open-source game-development platform and a set of games based on that platform.

As of this video, it was about 150k lines of code, of which 50% were C++, 30% Python and the rest a mish-mosh of Other Stuff.

The video mentions several "polished" open-source games, starting at about time 0:18:27 of the video.

How to make a cool $2MM+ in one day -- with a sparkle pony

Quote:
[T]his morning Blizzard announced the online sale of a new "celestial steed" for use in WoW. These mounts cost $25 (on top of the retail price plus $15 monthly subscription). ... [T]he queue for their purchase was at least up to over 91,000 people waiting in the queue earlier today. When I took a screen shot, it had fallen to "only" about 85,000.

90,000 X $25 = $2,250,000.

In one day. From one item. In a game that isn't free to play anyway.

MW3/SE is not the only Ancient Game with an ... obstreperous? ... player community:

Computer Harpoon Position Statement
Quote:
As many Harpoon fans are aware, this community has seen some very unfortunate events in its history that have given rise to online flame wars, personal attacks and questions of intellectual property; both between community members and in terms of some copyrighted materials. We hope to see the end of this with the steps we are taking for the Ultimate Edition release and for the future of Harpoon. We want to make it clear that we will not accept non-constructive feedback on our official forums in the future. However well intended or misguided, this has caused harm to the game and the community and we will not allow that to continue.

As far as the User Interface goes and overall game functionality - we really do want useful feedback and ideas. We want databases, scenarios, and artwork. Our new encryption feature will help protect an author's investment in their database work, so that there should be no future concerns about data being stolen or "borrowed". We can also add scenario encryption if need be (ditto for original artwork).

Tom Clancy used the original Harpoon board game, by Larry Bond, in writing The Hunt for Red October. Clancy and Bond also used Harpoon when they collaborated on Red Storm Rising.

It is clear, now, what we need.

Starbuck and Nostromo have the beginnings of a clue, with music for Warlord, but they are not taking it far enough.

What we really need is ... a Music Video!

(Warning: "The Guild" is kind of raunchy in many places. The music video is, I think, pretty clean, but the series as a whole is ... Not Appropriate for Family Viewing.)

EVE-online tutorial reworking botched -- scroll or search down for "Second one is".

Quote:
CCP’s looking for feedback on this. I have some. Give ten devs a big stack of Aurum usable in either DUST 514 or EVE. Send them and ten computers to the nearest gaming convention. Offer Aurum in exchange for watching people run through the EVE tutorial. One of the devs sits behind each volunteer, taking notes and answering questions. Where do they stall? Where do they get confused? What questions do they have? And most important, what frustrates them? Bring these notes back to Iceland. Hell, send the devs and the computers to a mall and offer the participants $5 if you have to.
