Essentially a web based version of the "Play By Email" game "Firetop Mountain", all due credits can be found here: http://www.gamerz.net/~fm/Main/index.html
The game is written in Java with BlazeDS (for the server) and Flex 3 (for the client).
Users join a game lobby/chat room and are assigned a username which they can change so long as no one else has that name. No user registration is required in the first version and a player's stats (logged in since, wins, loses) are lost if they end their client session.
Users can challenge one other player to a game.
The game plays similarly to the email version except that it's through a browser using the Flash platform and each player only has 30 seconds to make their gestures, choose spells and issue orders to their summoned monsters.
Once both players have made a gesture or the 30 seconds are up, the turn is resolved and next turn begins. If a player doesn't make a gesture in time, this is equivalent to choosing the "nothing" gesture as defined in the original rules.
Graphics are being commissioned and will be available under the Creative Commons licenses. Other licenses may apply.
Am happy to receive suggestions for future versions, but the first version will have the bare minimum required for people to simply get on the page and play the game.
