Description

In the freeware game 'please be nice :(' the players can decide which features they want for the next update. When a player is the first to complete the latest version of the game, he gets to submit a new feature to the game. After that, the developers will update the game and the cycle restarts. We plan on updating the game as fast as possible, generally within a day. The game starts out really simple, you just need to walk to the bottom-right corner of the screen. But when the players come up with new ideas for the game, that's when things get interesting. It is being developed by Sander Vanheste, Herman Groenenboom and Aran Koning.

History

When Aran saw 'Twitch Plays Pokemon' he realised how much fun communities can be, so he decided it'd be fun to see what would come out of a community (including trolls) when he'd give them a game to make or break! When he told the idea to 2 friends, Sander Vanheste and Herman Groenenboom, they said they'd love to chime in on making updates!

Features

  • Literally building a game with the community!
  • Next to that, nothing.. YET!
