Fake MMO April fool makes Hacker News front page

Did you spot it? The MMO Asteroids I mentioned yesterday was in fact completely fake – there are no other players at all. Each ship is just a particle with some simple physics to make them move around. To be totally honest, I thought everyone would catch on very quickly after a few seconds of playing but I guess I did too good a job :)

There’s even an angry thread on Hacker News about it so I guess I did something right.

Full confession and more details on my blog.

And I’m sorry. :)
