Today I've been working on a new play style for Rotherhithe. I'm keeping the territory grabbing and the quick switches between winners and losers that people have enjoyed in the playtesting. I've ditched the particle system that I had before because it was too unpredictable. This new version is really promising. Each player has to try to grab the triangles as they become available, and when you get them, adjacent triangles sometimes become available too. You can sweep through another player's territory really quickly when this happens, but they can get yours too. It becomes much more tactical that the old version.
It's by no means done, there's still experimentation and tweaking to do, but please enjoy a quick video of the current state of the game.

Last week I had the pleasure of running along to Primavera, a great festival in Barcelona. Mixing business with pleasure, I also met up with the superlative electronic musician Fitzroy North. I emailed Fitzroy a week before asking if I could use some of his music in Rotherhithe, since he lives in Barcelona, and over a pint of Brewdog's lovely IPA is Dead, he agreed.
