The third and hopefully last incarnation of State Secrets is now available on taskboy.com. There will be bugs, but the game is afoot now. It really has a win condition and PvP violence, so that’s delic.
State Secrets is a game I designed that was inspired by Seth Able’s Funeral Quest and his excellent earlier offering Legend of the Red Dragon (L.O.R.D). In SS, you assume the role of either an FBI agent or shadowy Man In Black to ferret out a collection of Secrets from ne’ do wells around town. The game ends after someone defeats the 3 Lodge sub-bosses in Pier 13.
Putting together this game was a lot more work than I ever thought and I’m certain I’m not done. I need a lot more error detection and cheat prevention, at a minium. Business applications are far easier to write.
Anyway, sign up and poke around. Let me know what you think.
