Source Code for Balance

    Okay, so you haven’t been waiting for this with baited breath the way everyone was waiting for the EveryBlock code. Nonetheless, after a few months of wrangling on and off with Git Hub I finally sat down and worked through a bunch of nagging authentication issues and managed to post the code for Balance! our game about balancing city budgets.

    Assuming we haven’t made any terrible mistakes (I already spotted one little error. If you spot it too you can buy me a beer!), we’ll post cleaned out versions of the other games we’ve developed in the next week or so.

    One thing we didn’t really budget for in these games was really good documentation. What we’ve got is pretty bare bones. And we certainly don’t have the resources to support the software. That said, if you’re genuinely interested in getting a Balance!-style game running yourself, I’ll do what I can to lead you through it.
