What's a forum?
A forum is like a Discord, only its ancient technology.

Why do you have a forum?

Two reasons.
1. In the future, having a forum is retro cool.
2. Imagine the Jedi Library running as a social media platform.

"Do you have any information on a mysterious water planet?"
"Not if its older than 1 week."

Social media is good for connecting with players.
Forums are for good for working with players to make an incredible game.

See, we want to hear your feedback and your great ideas.

What if you say "You know what you should do?  Multiplayer."
That's a great idea.
But we're already doing multiplayer.

So, I give you a link and say "Check out the multiplayer discussion on our forum."

You think its great, but your idea is better, or... maybe its just different.
So, you tell your idea in the forum.
Everybody talks about it.
We see the error of our ways, and your idea goes into the game.
The game is now better.

Social media can't do that.
(ok... social media can't do that very well)

I'm JeTSpice, by-the-way.

Ok, I'll kick off the conversation about multiplayer.
JeTSpice Games is actively developing multiplayer for GrindCraft.
We've talked about node networks, chat rooms, spinning up instances, using block chain, and a bunch of other stuff.
Really, a lot of that is technically over my head.

But the basic idea is:
  • You start up a GrindCraft game.  (Each game is technically called a "room".)
  • You open it up publically or send invites to players.
  • Players can play co-operatively, or against each other.

Some things we are considering:
  • Eventually, everyone will be able to jump from room to room.
  • Each room will have unique resources and crafting.
  • All the rooms together will create a huge world.
