Hi, I'm 19683. I've been addicted to velocity raptor for a while...

I just registered, and it's nice to have a forum!

Hi. I agree, this way I don't have to fill Andy's inbox full of e-mails!

A real time saver for me! ;) Then again, I imagine the forum might be its own time-sink... If I'm on here too much, chastise me and tell me to go make some games, okay?

Don't say that. Trust me.

If we could, we'd make ten clones of you and put you all working on games. And maybe take one of you to lecture us about science stuff.

Yes, there is a story. I was reading about tetration, and I wanted to calculate 3 tetrated by 3. I should have calculated 3^27=7625597485*(10^3), but i made a mistake and calculated 3^9=19683.

7625597485*(10^3) was too long to memorise, so 19683 became my favorite number.

If I could, I would colonize the universe with trillions of clones of you making awesome games.

Quick Question: About when will shoctopus be released? I'm thinking about playtesting...

Heh, when I saw your username, I actually recognized that the number had some meaning, but didn't remember what. Then I put it into wolfram alpha, which immediately gave me 3^9, and realized I should have known that.
$1 = 100¢ = (10¢)^2 = ($0.10)^2 = $0.01 = 1¢ [1]
Always check your units or you will have no money!

I love wolfram alpha.

I made a cool shape by entering (x^4)+(y^4)=1

Which code is used to program these games?

C++?

The flash games are written using ActionScript (AS3). The iOS games are written in Objective-C.
