Science Girls Available at Rampant Games
If you haven't picked it up already (or at least tried the demo), Science Girls! is now available at the Rampant Games website.
I'm still playing it. I'm currently lost in an alien dimension chased by monsters, with my party all around level 7 and 8. The game does throw a few puzzles at you to break up the fighting. So far, nothing has been too difficult or frustrating, but I do have to remember where I was going when I am only playing in short 10- or 20- minute segments.
(Yay for save-anywhere!)
Science Girls! features some cute, almost throw-away dialog which has endeared me to the game a bit. I was particularly amused by their little in-game discussion of how the media and others tend to confuse correlation and causation. Like the Nethack gag, you pretty much have to be a geek yourself to "get it," which makes me wonder a little bit about the actual intended audience. But hey, if one person playing this game suddenly decides to give Nethack a try, or begins to understand how the media twists the facts, it'll be awesome.
We recently had a server migration here at Rampant Games - if ya blinked, ya mighta missed it. This is the first addition to affiliate games I've made since the switch, and while there were a couple of bumps in the road, everything seems to have gone off without a hitch. Next up will be making some changes to existing titles. And making some fixes to the site, which apparently isn't displaying properly on Firefox under Linux (I use Firefox myself, but only on Windows). There's a lot of site maintenance to be done, and I've been putting it off until after the server move. Now that this is done, I don't have any excuse.
And then there's figuring out how to deal with the 17 hojillion RPGs and adventure games on the RPG / Adventure section. The current system - which randomly orders all the games within a category - worked great when I only had a dozen or so games there. But with the rate of Indie RPGs have been getting released lately, I'm going to have to figure something else out.
Which will, no doubt, cut into my limited playing-games time. *Sigh.*
