World’s Biggest PAC-MAN

Filed under: jsc — Tags: , , , — zproxy @ 1:52 am

Only a few years ago I had this idea to have a JSC branded PAC MAN multiplayer game.

Today, I found this via RLammle:

For my amusement I found it rather remarkable to be able to log in with facebook connect and use my tablet to ink a new maze for others to play later.

It would be awesome if a future version of JSC would include a C# project template to create something like this.

What if it would be applied to other simple games? What if actual applications could be extended by crowd sourcing?

Marketing management is now tribal leadership

[…] Software that’s boring will never turn into a movement

  • Who can I reach?
  • Will they talk about it with their peers?
  • Can I earn and maintain permission to continue the conversation

[…] Grinding out code is not on top of the  hierarchy of value. Creating and inventing interesting solutions is on the top of the hierarchy of value.

  • Once they learn about the utility offered will they pay for it

[..] Free is the most powerful marketing tool ever. If it is free then trial is more likely. If tiral leads to someone  becoming connected to a group  they do not want to become disconnected from they will start paying because that value has been proven.

[…] Implementation can be outsourced. Brilliant design can not.

[…] Be the change you wish to see in the world. – Gandhi
  • Be relational!
  • Be a storyteller!
  • Be a little bit crazy!

remarkable: extraordinary, unusual

Cows are invisible. Nobody sees them.

If the cow was purple, you would notice it for a while.

Core rules – Figure out what people want and give it to them!

  • Design is free if you get to scale
  • The riskiest thing to do now is to be safe
  • Figure out who does care

Is your product remarkable?
