Hey there, fellow Detectives and Impostors – and Robots!
So the game is already somewhat popular and since I didn’t have time to put together an FAQ/More Info page over the weekend, here’s a quick placeholder.
First of all, I appreciate all the positive feedback. The game is still work in progress, so I appreciate everyone’s patience while I’m smoothing out some of the quirks.
Speaking of this, I implemented a sort of a filter in the game – I
really don’t mind people swearing, but certain language should really be
off-limits. I’d really appreciate if anyone could report any issues due
Moving on, there are really two main areas to focus on in this project: the Robot and some kind of a scoring system.
As for a scoring system, I am considering only awarding points for
either successfully determining that you are speaking with an
Impostor or for deceiving the Detective into thinking they are
speaking with one. I think the real fun of the game comes from playing
as the Impostor and pretending to be a chat bot to confuse the other
player. Playing against the Robot would then server as a practice area
for observing how the Robot behaves, what expressions “it” uses.
The only thing left to solve here is whether to let people use Twitter/Facebook/etc to log in or whether to let them create separate accounts.
I am heavily leaning towards a federated login, but I really don’t want
to lock those people out of the game who don’t like using their social
media accounts to sign up on websites.
