    MIT looking for volunteers for a game
    Hi ya folks! Just saw this at MacInTouch:

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

    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.

    Aww sorry guys.

    Maybe you can email the head honcho there?

    Please email me at jorkin AT mediaDOTmitDOTedu with questions or technical problems, or post comments to the Game/AI blog.


    Oops!... I shoulda posted this in the first post! Just saw this on the troubleshooting page. Very sorry again guys!

    Unfortunately, the Restaurant Game will not run on Intel Macs in OSX.

    Yeah guys beware those of you running Intel-based Macs: it won't work on them. From the troubleshooting page:

    Unfortunately, the Restaurant Game will not run on Intel Macs in OSX.
    Which is a bummer... :blind:
