Hi to everyone here on the site. I recognize some of you from CCGR, and some from downloading my game (and emailing me about all the bugs). It's great to be among fellow Christian gamers and coders.

@ArchAngel

Oh, the fun we could have trying to guess who we REALLY are. I'm Jeff Spicer of "Jeff and Natasha." We had the round table in the middle. The game is Exegesis. And you are...?

OOPS. I was thinking of CGDC. Oh, the anachronyms. Now I've revealed my secret identity for no reason. I have the same name in CCGR.

@luke

www.CCGR.org is Christ Centered Game Reviews. Currently, they are in the process of moving to a new server. The forums still work, though. They've got a different perspective, because they mainly represent players who are not necessarily coders. Good resource.

The Spiceman!

Welcome, Jeff! So glad to see that you found us here at CCN.

I met Jeff at this year's Christian Game Developer's Conference -- I think he's a really cool guy. He had a working prototype of a game that he did -- he did all of the design, artwork and programming for this game, I was really impressed.

Jeff, BTW -- I posted audio of your talk from this year's CGDC -- I hope that was okay. It's up here on the web:

Cheers!

In Christ,

@buddboy

I don't know ssquared. At least I don't know that I don't know them.

@HanClinto

I don't mind at all for posting the talk. My wife said I spoke too fast. We'll see. Are you editing the workshops for the DVD?

@ everyone

If you had to design a game, and you had one question to ask people, and the game had to be designed according to their answer, what would the question be?

@Goop2

It's very bald and very green.

@buddboy

And they'd say, I would design a game that asks you what kind of a game you wanted it to design for you.

Jeff:

I've thought about this question some, and there's a bunch of good ones.

One simple question that I would like to put in an "evangelistic" game is the same one that Stacie Orrico put in her hit single "Theres Gotta Be (More To Life)" -- I don't know if you've heard the song, but the point of the song is get people thinking outside of themselves, to not think so small, but to thing big -- like eternity big. Just asking "what's out there?" -- in pop-culture, with all the glitz and sparkle, it's easy to get caught up in the here-and-now so much that one is distracted from thinking about anything outside of themselves.

So just asking, "what's out there?" -- "what don't I know?" -- "is there more?" -- etc. Just simple questions that can go a long way, in a somewhat non-threatening way.

I know I'm not expressing myself very clearly, but hopefully that's a start.

Cheers!

I haven't heard the song, but that's a great point. BTW, I can't get .ogg to work on my mac. Is there some other way to hear the lecture?

BB, Yes, I think a game that asks people questions about how to design games is the perfect answer to a question that would be your only design guideline, which would be "What kind of game would you design?"

I've only got it available in .ogg at the moment as I don't have access to a legal MP3 encoder (we own one, but it doesn't install under Linux). From this page, I found Ogg Drop.

quote:
Ogg Drop will encode audio tracks and CD's into vorbis. It also contains a QuickTime component that allows iTunes to] play ogg vorbis files. Ogg Drop is entirely free.

If it's a problem to install that codec, I can possibly re-encode it into something else -- is there some other thing you'd rather have it encoded in? (I can't technically put it into mp3 legally -- thanks Fraunhofer :-\ )

Cheers!

Hi JetSpice.
I would ask "what's you favorite color?"
My game would be monochromatic and anything else Iwanted it to be.
