 +====== isoMiner Game ======
 +
 +isoMiner is an idea for a game inspired by Notch'​s Minecraft game.  I'll develop a few thoughts on the game and store them here.  I don't anticipate a working game for a long while.
 +
 +As I've installed and used the original Minecraft game, I was frustrated by a few quirks. ​ As a result, I'm designing isoMiner with these major goals in mind.
 +
 +  - Low RAM requirements on the server. ​ Should support hundreds of users on light hardware.
 +  - No special client requirement. ​ Users just need a web browser.
 +  - No central server. ​ Each server install stands on it's own with no need to "check in".
 +
 +As the name implies, isoMiner will be drawn in isometric format. ​ It will not be 3D in the proper sense of the word.  It will draw your view of the world on a "​board"​ similar to the Q*bert game.  It will also be in the style of a first person shooter, though, with your pick axe hanging at the front of the screen and the world beyond.
 +
 +Here's an initial reference cube.

 +===== Customization =====
 +
 +Cubes should be customizable. ​ Perhaps simple square PNG images with transparent edges.
 +
 +===== JavaScript Library =====
 +
 +I've created [[iso]], a JavaScript library for creating drawings with isometric blocks.
