ANN: Nomyx 1.0, the only game where you can change the rules

Corentin Dupont
After a loooooong wait...
I am finally proud to announce Nomyx V1.0!
Nomyx is a unique game where you can change the rules of the game itself while playing it.

The major novelty in this version is that you can play even without knowing how to program.
There is a library of rules that are ready to be proposed.
Let's start a new game! You can login here: http://www.nomyx.net:8000/Nomyx
The games are discussed on the mailing list: [hidden email]

Here is a video introduction of the game: http://vimeo.com/58265498
I created a tutorial to learn how to play: http://corentindupont.info/blog/posts/Programming/2014-09-23-Nomyx-Language.html

Some background: this is an implementation of a Nomic [1] game in Haskell (I believe the first complete implementation of a Nomic game on a computer). At the beginning, the initial rules are describing:
- how to add new rules and change existing ones. For example a unanimity vote is necessary to have a new rule accepted.
- how to win the game. For example you win the game if you have 5 rules accepted.
But of course even that can be changed!
