For a while now, I've been broadcasting my X-com games sporadically, using a host called JustinTV. There's been some mixed interest, and I'm looking to crank things up a little.
I enjoy keeping things personal, as a result I give my soldiers individual names.
A while ago, I got the idea to name my soldiers after my viewers. But now, I'm looking to go one step further. I want them to be able to create their own soldier.
To that end, I have developed a small application that lets them do so.
So, what's this post all about?
Firstly, I'd like to invite you all to check out my broadcast. It should be up at http://www.justin.tv/thyferra whenever I'm playing. JustinTV has an option that sends you a mail you once a broadcast starts.
Secondly, you're also invited to use my application and make a soldier of your own. I intend to use the database whenever I need fresh recruits, so if you love to see yourself in action, here's your chance.
You can find my application at http://www.jennana.com/games/xcom.php
Any feedback regarding the app's balance is also appreciated. I made it so you have 300 points to spend, with one twist. Attributes become more expensive as you spend more points on them.
This prevents people from making a guy with 200 firing accuracy.
Hope to see you on the battlefield!
