Pazaak - from kotor

I was playing star wars kotor today and thought to myself pazaak would be fun game to play if it was real. Thinking on that I wonder is someone could make an app of pazaak made a spiced up verison. I would atleast pay $3 maybe for such a game. Give me your thought and dev's pm ok?

The gambling games in Fable 2 (xbox360) would also make good games on the iphone. Even would pay 10$ (if all 3 were in one package).

Pazaak for iPhone

We're actually working on a Pazaak game for the iPhone .

Here's a screenshot



The game is
-OpenFeint enabled
-can be played in single mode or multiplayer mode

OFX might be used to allow players to earn and wager virtual currency but thats not a 100% yet. We expect the game to be ready by mid July insh'Allah.

Any suggestions are welcome.

Are we going to be able to build our own deck? What's the price point? It's not going to be freemium, is it? If it is going to be freemium is playing it at least not going to require the purchase of in game currency?



In the mean time till this Pazaak game comes out there is this link to an online Pazaak game that actually works on the iDevices. It works best on the iPad but is still playable on the iPhone/iPod Touch.

Since this isn't an iphone or ipod touch game, why is this posted here?

Cool! I am curious though, from what I recall George Lucas has a pretty firm hold on everything regarding Star Wars. If you are selling the game it was my understanding that you need a license from Lucas.

Have you guys obtained this?

Cheers!

We're still only working on getting the basic single and multiplayer gameplay up and running but we hope to offer both a free and paid version of the game. We'll let you guys know the exact features of each version as we decide upon them.

As for the question of getting a license from George Lucas, we haven't thought about that. Our (rather cursory) search on google hasn't indicated that the game is copyrighted. Besides there are some versions on other platforms that are being sold so I think we should be in the clear insh'Allah .

Ouch yeah, I'm not one to tell someone how to buisiness but just a friendly and respectful warning / advice regarding intellectual property.

First, the pazaak ip likely belong to Lucas.
Doesn't have to be filed to belong. They would just have to prove in court they made it first. This day and age that is easy to do with so many digital receipts.

If lucas arts was to file a complaint with apple the the game could be pulled.
That is not the bad part. When a company brIngs an ip issue to apple they can also request the revenue made. Without a legal contraction from the filer apple may comply. I can't speak for apple but the chances of them spending money to defend you against a lawsuit is unlikely as the legal action is typically against the seller ( which is not the developer)

So, no you will not likely be sued or anything like that but without permission to use the pazaak ip you may suffer a descent loss.
