    Will Wright's New Game: "HiveMind"


    Dirktator

    Wright says there will be over 50 dimensions of customization learned from real life data that ranges from the weather, to your location, and your personal wealth. He says to “imagine if you could open Google Maps and it shows you things that are interesting to you on the map.” So far, this sounds a little invasive, so what sets it apart from Facebook?

    He says the goal of the game is to get you more involved in reality rather than distract you from it. Personally, I sometimes prefer a distraction in video games, but his idea is intriguing. He says that with HiveMind, “the world and the opportunities for entertainment within it become more visible to you.”

    The concept’s beginning is attributed to Wright’s personal experience of showing up to a meeting early and happening to see a car show, something that interested him greatly. With HiveMind, Wright hopes to make these kinds of happenstance circumstances more common, with direct feedback.

    So does anyone know what happened with his Stupid Fun Club startup?

    Interesting, but if it involves a lot of personal stuff, will it also be an MMO?

    Ok this is bad news. Fortunately there are great game frameworks nowadays, it's really up to Simtropolis (hand in hand with BUGGY?) to make serious work of a simcity sequel. With thousends of fans still on this site, Dirrrrrrrk can actually raise funds for this game to be made (like the movie Iron Sky has become reality!).

    Look at Buggy's plans. (Simcity Boomtown). This is about to get serious. I would call it "Simtropolis". (the game).

    .. just my cents (after failing developing CityMania)
