Buster Flame Released

As a small indie game studio, we are working to finalize our first game called Buster Flame, the story and game-play is very simple but we are still proud to have made a game.

Abydos Online News #3 Radial Menus
Radial menus are currently being worked on in the Abydos Online prototype. What makes radial menus exciting is the ease to adapt after players behaviors. For example, looking at the screen shot below, when a player clicks on an object, a circle of buttons appears around it. These buttons define what interactions a player can do with the object, in this case the player has the choice of "pick up", "examine" and "destroy" the mushroom. Each action can be logged in a way that the system learns the probability of actions from a player to a certain type of objects. Using this information, the user interface can re-arrange the most used actions first and then hide or put the uncommon interactions in a sub menu.
