+ - First biochemistry strategy game ever.-> 2

Submitted by DrStegman
DrStegman (1383155) writes "Immune Defense is a new kind of game in a whole new game world. Using bio-molecular science as our starting point, the game developed into a unique RTS adventure.
Watch trailer:
Play demo:

Immune Defense is accurate molecular science. This fantasy world is real, happening inside of you each instant. Each chapter takes place in a 2.5 millimeter wide field in a different part of a human body.

You pilot a microbot around the field, buy white blood cells, change their receptors and move individual floating protein signals. The object is to kill all pathogens (bacteria, viruses, parasites...) before inflammation in your field gets too high.

Kickstarter ends January 25th.
Kickstarter website:
At MAGFest Indie Game Showcase, January 24-25."

It's good to see this happens to people other than Indie developers. Working with Microsoft to figure out how the promotion of Apps in the app store works is not easy. Microsoft makes the process difficult. I waited up to full month for an exclusive Windows Phone game I made, BouncyLasers, to go from submitted to approved on the market. I tried to join multiple Microsoft sponsored marketing campaigns with no feedback other than "your app has been submitted to the campaign". Sure my app isn't too impressive as I'm the single dev, but some more help from Microsoft on how their featuring in the Market process works or what to expect from submitting to one of their campaigns is badly needed.

I wanted to add a forum to my site. My requirements were a bit different than yours:
- I didn't care much about the look and feel integration.
- My focus was free and low maintenance.
- I don't have user account registering on my website, which lead to spam on the forums I tried,

I ended up with the website linking directly to a Facebook page I made for it. It looks a bit like a hack job, but one that has been working really well for me.

I completely agree with "The devil is in the plethora of browser-specific quirks", yet companies are moving away from the web based solution to this, which in my mind is plug-ins: Java applets, Flash, & Silverlight. You may have yourself cornered in the future if you stick to the (better) methods of the plug-in/write-once-run-anywhere based past.

The video from the companies website,, states that many attempts have been made to make flying cars. Looks like a lot of those attempts fly just fine. Guess they don't have access to wikipedia: Terrafugia is one of the more modern flying car contenders:

I went to Metrix just last weekend for the first time. They were the only place I could find in the Seattle area to use a 3D printer. The staff knowledgeable and interested in wanting to make my project work and making sure I knew what it'd cost ahead of time. They frequented my printer job often as it was printing. They also have a ton of interesting projects around to check out and use for examples as they tend to share a similarity for what you want to create. The only downside is parking/bus routes.

He keeps differentiating, flying off on a tangent.
