It's an exciting genre that deserves better than this.Clear Sky is quite the opposite of the original DotA and the newer Monday Night Combat. Clear Sky applied the tower defense genre to a persistent, frightening game world. It's an application that makes victories and losses feel like more than just one more round. It's too bad the game can't even remember these (non) persistent advances and retreats, because conquering the Zone faction by faction would be a unique, rewarding experience.[Tom Cross is a managing editor at Rules of the Game, writes for Popmatters, and blogs about games at Delayed Responsibility.

Though Oltyan writes he was initially impressed with a design doc versioning solution he'd worked with before: "it was probably the best document system I've ever been a part of" -- he notes that "It lasted all of two weeks in production before it became impossible to identify the latest design doc."He had similar experiences with using SVN (a "horror") and wikis ("you will amaze yourself at the power of your own entropic force when it comes to a wiki.") However, Oltyan has since become convinced that Google Docs fills a void, and in today's feature he recounts his experiences, with online example documents, to explain and show exactly why.Says Oltyan, "It makes everything incredibly easy, and destroys any barrier -- and thus any excuse -- for someone not to update a doc."To find out exactly why Oltyan thinks game developers should consider the search giant's productivity solution, check out Gamasutra's latest feature, Game Dev Collaboration: Google Docs Style..
