I'm looking at a potential issue that we might be facing soon in one of our game backend servers where we have over a million + or so users hitting the server daily and buying assets in our game and doing other game related things.
Right now when buying an asset it gets inserted as a node and content type with cck, well we where discussing the other day that int(11) only goes up to about 2 billion+ nodes and while this is a lot for most sites we can easily reach that in a month or so and also as our customer base grows.Read more

Surely you've probably seen this, but just in case here is a link to googles O3D API
O3D is an open-source web API for creating rich, interactive 3D applications in the browser.
Im thinking why not use o3d for the action and 3d of games and interactive website interfaces, what are your thoughts on this? Yeah flash is certainly more ubiquitous, but O3d seems like it will rock our socks off with native app performance in the browser.
My name is Mike Bohlmann, and I would like to build a core team of three to five people to form the company that enables the environment for the untapped creative minds of the Swarm to produce something new. While the first project for the Swarm will be to create a role-playing game setting, I hope to learn enough from the Swarm and this development model that the Swarm could get involved in other creative endeavors, most likely still in the non-electronic gaming field. As a member of the core team, you would be both microinvestor and part of the company.Read more

The EmptyCrate Game Engine is a Drupal and Flash based game engine which allows for the creating of point and click adventure style games as a set of drupal modules and playing of those games via a Flash application, written fully in ActionScript.
The full project announcement is available at blog.emptycrate.com. A hosted game site where anyone is free to play with the engine and make their own games is available at game.emptycrate.com. Also, the first test of this engine was to create an entry to the 2008 Christian Developers Network speed game competition. The entry is avaible here, to demonstrate what is currently possible with the engine.
This site uses flashnode and a custom module to embed flash games, and let them report back to Drupal High Scores, which are stored by Drupal and reported back in various blocks.
Check it out:
You'll need to sign up an account to try the Score Saving features.
Once beta is complete, the module will be released on Drupal.org.

So... it was late last night and I was a little disconcerted from staining my floors upstairs on a windless evening... the windows were open, but there was little air movement to blow those noxious fumes outside. I found myself fiddling away online after my wife went to bed and decided I wanted to make a Duel module so users could challenge one another to combat. The thing is, I can't decide on how to build stats and provide battles.Read more
So I have recently implemented and committed RPG Achieve in the RPG module series for Drupal. This allows games to record achievements of players, such as "You have slain 14 dragons", or "You were the first to summit Ploggers Peak". Next in that progression will be RPG Quest, which will allow achievements to be grouped together.Read more
