Not Dead Yet
It’s been way too long since I wrote a post. Cool stuff is happening. We’re not dead yet. Let me elaborate.
We have enough data to do some significant data analysis now. Stuff like: Try to look for trends. Evaluate the performance of the algorithm. Compare it to existing algorithms. Look for weak spots. Find out how to fix them. That sort of thing. As you can imagine, this takes a bunch of time. More than we expected. That’s kinda the reason we haven’t added replayability yet.
We wanted to do it right away. Like, a month ago. But a little research revealed that it might be better to hold off a bit. Let me explain.
We don’t want to waste your time. There’s plenty of places to do that already. We want to help you find games. We want every minute you spend on our site to be as fun and as useful as it can be. That’s why we’re putting it off. We want to make sure that playing more games on Crunch Magic, or replaying the existing one, makes your recommendations better. To do that we must first do science.
We’ve started looking at stuff, and we’ve discovered some pretty interesting facts already. For instance, some people really like Football Manager. I mean really like it. Enough to be intriguing. We’ll be putting a cool infographic together soon.
