Fishing for abalone ,

Emergent strategic genius

Doesn't look like much at first. Seems pretty simple after a play through or two. Then you check the high scores and realise how much you have to learn. It's a game that reveals itself as layer upon layer upon layer. A simple rule set with seemingly infinite customisation gives you a game as deep as you want it to be. If it gets its hooks in to you, you'll be playing this a long long time.

I love all your games.

Especially, 868-HACK.
I'm so glad to see a traditionalist who makes original games, for a change.
