Online Lux - Kings & Castles February!


Greetings and Salutations to all Lords and Knightly folk, Sharpen your sword, polish your armor and gird your loins for our online Kings and Castles event in February! There will be a lot of great royal maps, a 'winner picks' option and both weekly and monthly medals. Starting Feb 3...

Key points:
* The weekly rankings chase in February will happen in specific rooms devoted to the Kings and Castles theme.
* Monthly ranked games (Bio Deux, Imperium, Classic) will still be hosted, but will not relate to the weekly ranks.
* There are rooms for preview and practice. Please ask a mod to change a map for you if needed.
* Winner Picks for first 3 weeks.
* Spring will come shortly after the conclusion of this event.

Full details here in the Kings & Castles forum thread.

iOS Lux stability improvements

Some iOS users have been having issues running Lux Touch and Lux DLX on their devices (often iPad Airs or iPad Minis) after upgrading to iOS 11.4 or 12.1. It took way longer then expected to track down a fix to these issues, but we've now done it!

Please update your Lux Touch or Lux DLX apps to version 3.24 from the app store for continued world domination fun!

(As of this writing, Lux Touch 3.24 has been approved, however Lux DLX 3.24 is still awaiting Apple's review approval, it should be available within a day or two...)

Mission Me Machine at Burning Man


The original idea for Mission Me came out of experiences at the Burning Man event some years ago. We returned to the desert this year with the physical Mission Machine and gave out thousands of missions!


Here's a photo of sillysoft founder Dustin Quasar and the Mission Me Machine at Burning Man this year:




The amazing results of the physical Mission Machine at Burning Man and other festivals is what led us to create the phone app version, so that more people could experience the joy and personal transformation it can create...

Mission Me ;; The Origin Story
April 23, 2018

Mission Me :: The Origin Story

It's been a decade since I first attended the Burning Man interactive arts festival. It's an eye-opening experience of cutting-edge art, technology and cultural experimentation!

Burning Man encourages everyone to participate fully in the event, for a maximal experience. Based on my expansion there, I returned some years later with a new art creation that I called the Mission Machine.

Here's a picture of me with the Mission Machine:



The Mission Machine is an interactive art sculpture that dispenses MISSIONS for people to take-on. It was designed to encourage everyone to engage in new ways with all the amazing life happening around us.

The Mission Machine has since travelled to a variety of art festivals along the west coast. Wherever it goes, it delights people by giving them fun and eclectic quests to accomplish!

Last year I decided it was time to create a digital version of the Mission Machine, so that everyone with a mobile phone could play and be inspired in their everyday life!

Thus began the creation of our upcoming app Mission Me!


So that's the back-story. Development of Mission Me continues to steam forward. It's grown out of its physical machine origins to take on fun videogame features, like experience points, particle effects and a progression through different levels of difficulty.

We are on pace to put out an updated beta for both Android and iOS next week. Expect the 1.0 public release in autumn. Stay tuned for more mission fun coming soon...

New Lux Alliance Map: Civil War - Fredericksburg

Lux Alliance continues to explore the War Between The States with a new Civil War - Fredericksburg map.

"The union army is in dire need of a major victory to bolster norther public opinion.

After relieving General McClellan of command, President Lincoln is searching for a commander who will take the fight to the Rebels. He finally settles on General Burnside who has devised a plan to overwhelm the confederates with massive numbers and then make a quick run on Richmond.

However, Confederate General Lee is well situated in the heights behind Fredericksburg on the banks of the Rappahanock River."

Find this new map in the Map Manager inside Lux Alliance.

Mobile beta testers wanted...

Sillysoft's next game is called Mission Me. It's a mobile app that adds adventure quests to your real life!

Beta software can be quirky (buggy), but participating allows you to help shape the game while it's still in the early stages.

New Lux Alliance Map: Ancient World - Platea
Lux Alliance continues to tour through antiquity, with the new Ancient World - Platea map.



"In response to a massive Persian invasion, many Greek city-states form a tenuous alliance to fight their common enemy. After a series of early defeats the Greek allies are desperate to turn the tides of war. Mardonius, the Persian general, has captured Athens and is now moving on the strategic city of Platea. Ultimately, the Spartans agree to join the fight and march out to meet the Persians on the field of battle."
