While the rest of us are (im)patiently waiting for Luca Redwood's 10000000 [$2.99] followup You Must Build a Boat which was revealed earlier this year, he's apparently working on something else. That "something else" is Smarter Than You, a multiplayer social-y game that looks a little bit like a significantly spruced up version of rock-paper-scissors in the just-released "instructional video":

(See above)

No word yet on what this means for You Must Build a Boat, or when it's going to be released… But, to be fair, in one of my first conversations with Luca he mentioned he didn't want to become "the 10000000 guy", so it it that much of a surprise to see him working on something else? Maybe, maybe not.

Either way, I still must build a boat.

I am actually a beta tester for this, and I am really enjoying it. It really takes alot of thought and strategy to win matches. The option to lie can really remove the guesswork out of matches, and you begin to learn the player's strategy, and learn to destroy them. The damage for each method of attack is randomized throughout every round, whichwill push you to change your attack style every round. Also, if you say something in the chat involving a method of attack (ex. This Counter will win) it will add damage to it. Attack beats Arrow, Arrow beats Attack, Counter beats Attack. Overall, very fun and unique game.
