I made a random number god!

Any Nethack player will tell you that RNG doesn’t stand for Random Number Generator, it stands for Random Number God! The RNG’s divine providence influences every aspect of Nethack.

I’ve built a Random Number God of my own (ably assisted by Jeremy Lai). It procedurally generates levels for Bird Strike, PikPok‘s latest iPhone game. Level generators are close to my heart, so I’m thrilled to have worked on it!

I’m inordinately proud of Bird Strike. It’s not the most high-tech project I’ve ever worked on, and not the most ambitious, but it more than makes up for it with quality. The rest of the team have put together a game that’s pure, fun and charming. I really hope the fans enjoy my contribution to it.

Here’s the iTunes link.

    Is it bad form to challenge people to your own game? Well anyway, my Endless Climb high score is 176,080. I’m pretty sure this is the only time I’ve been #3 in the world at anything.
