Work is currently under way on a new YouTube-based project. This is something you've never seen before on YouTube, I guarantee it.



We'll be taking the Retro Manic! board game concept (the one available in the Points Store), and making it playable online. But not how you might think.



This version of the game will be played completely on YouTube via a livestream. Yup. No web pages to visit, no programs to download, no browser extentions, no registrations. All a player will need is a YouTube account. That's it.



Here's how it will work:



Once the RetroDaze channel begins livestreaming the game, players can join in and interact with the game via YouTube's Live Chat area. They do so by entering a list of simple commands. Up to 5 players can be on the board at once, and other players are placed in a virtual queue until it is their turn to join.



Much like the board game, the object of the game is to accumulate points. There will be a leaderboard/statistical web page with lots of stats for every player and every game.



But even better... players can find "prizes" in the game that they then receive in the real world! Some of those prizes will be really high quality vintage stuff.





As the game's development gets closer to completion, I'll update this thread so every RD member can be a part of the testing phase.

I've gotten word that the game itself is complete! Now just working on other aspects of the development... web page, stats, scroll bar, etc.



YES!

For those who want to, an early, incomplete version of the interactive YouTube game "Retro Manic" is live on YouTube for you to try. Here is the link: https://youtu.be/dtIT9PqsoQk









 



Things to keep in mind... when you first join the stream, increase the playback speed to x2 to get the stream more caught up with the actual game. Do this occasionally as YouTube lags behind over time. The commands are: !enter = to enter the game (5 players max), !roll = to roll the dice, !keep or !left to make a turn or stay straight, !swap = swap spaces with another player (if you got a Swap Token), !steal = steal from another player on your space. Right now you have 12 turns. When they are used up your token will disappear. You can rejoin the game after 40 seconds. If the turn timer runs out, you exit the game. This will be changed soon to instead do an auto roll of the dice.
