Flash... meet Lunar Quest; Lunar Quest... meet Flash

A system has officially been devised that will effectively communicate between the Flash minigames and the Lunar Quest system. By the end of the week, the system should be 100% functional and the badges you receive for completing the games will show up in your inventory.

This was no easy task because it simply has never been done before. The marriage of the two required all of the following systems to communicate effectively between each other asynchronously :
  • Actionscript
  • JavaScript (AJAX)
  • Python
  • PHP
  • MySQL
  • Java
  • XML

Got Branding?

In an effort to establish a firm branding for Lunar Quest at GDC, a number of marketing materials have been made. Below you'll see the poster we're going to use at the Multiverse booth at GDC in San Fransisco as well as our new business cards. We made a few variations of each, two iterations are shown below. The materials on the left are the ones we've chosen to use. The ones on the right are unused alternates.

Cosmo-Radio (Interior Prop)

I have finished the "Cosmo-Radio". It will populate the main dome bays as a part of lunar communication equipment. The main purpose of the Cosmo-Radio is to serve as an interplanetary communication device. Aside from its obvious long rage capability, this radio is amazingly portables and adaptable. Weighing only 437 lb. this device can be easily adapted to lunar vehicles and transported to remote areas for reconnaissance missions.

Stay tuned for more props!
