I’ve been enjoying playing Triton, but I don’t think I’m going to be able to keep it up - it just demands too much time, and I don’t really see how you can even sleep if you want to the big games. I was wondering about a possible alternative mode that removes most of the benefit from obsessively monitoring the game all day.
Basically, you could only perform actions during X ticks per day. 2 might be a good default. You can pick what those ticks are, but if you try to carry out actions during a third tick, you get a message telling you to wait.
So you might carry out some actions at 8am, then at 6pm, but you can’t do anything until at least 8am tomorrow. Perhaps tomorrow you do something at 10am, then you do something else at 12pm…now you can’t do anything until 12pm the next day.
There’d be less benefit in obsessively monitoring the game, I think, especially after your actions were exhausted. There might be some weird meta-game thing where you try and guess whether other players are “locked out” and take advantage…that wouldn’t be so good.
Or perhaps there’s some kind of tax on excessive actions.
(Personally, I’m not really enjoying the turn-based format much. It really distorts things, and removes the elegance of the constant motion format…)
