Totally still within the realm of possibilities. My bet is for a full-on MMO, though.

Oh man, where do I start? Can you go? What does dragon blood taste like? Does it live in a mountain fortress? How much are the Bavarian's paying it?

Nailed it. Well, maybe not GOLDEN, but at least not in a bad way.

Yisssss Mark of the Ninja. One of two games that I've gotten all the achievements/trophies for. The other is Rayman: Origins.

I know! I hated that jerk "AAA". He was in every arcade leaderboard.

It's more likely they would ban user accounts than devices, but the essential problem you point out is the same. It's a reverse escalation, and, as I point out in the article, there's no guarantee that scores in the reasonable range aren't hacked. Rocks. Hard places.

For what it's worth, I avoided posting direct links to the hacking software, but I think it's valuable for Game Center users to know just how the leaderboards got into the shape they're in now. You would still have to jailbreak an iOS device to even begin down that road.

It's how we learn, and learning is great! But yes, it's a bummer to see that kind of garbage attitude in your own past.

It's more a proof of concept than anything. Impressive that Blue Brick was able to get most of this worked out at 7-day game jam.

That's part of what makes Superhot super hott. Broadening horizons, bridging genres, etc.

Ah, a glaring omission, for sure. This is some of the cleverest comedy out there if you can get past the absurdity, or embrace it. Go CatBug.
