Hi ya folks! Just saw this at MacInTouch:

Quote:
The MIT Media Lab needs volunteers for a research project that requires the participation of thousands of game players:

Quote:
This game runs on OSX, and we are running our servers on OSX too.
The Restaurant Game is a research project at the MIT Media Lab that will algorithmically combine the gameplay experiences of thousands of players to create a new game. In a few months, we will apply machine learning algorithms to data collected through the multiplayer Restaurant Game, and produce a new single-player game that we will enter into the 2008 Independent Games Festival. Everyone who plays The Restaurant Game will be credited as a Game Designer.
So if you have the time, check it out. Click on the links for more info. :girl:

Downloaded it. It crashed four times ... the best I could get was into the "chat" part of the tutorial.
