Boxon??

Apparently they're working on something called Boxon for the Ipad and PC. Wonder what that is. Still, good to see they're still in bussiness...

In other worlds, they put a message inside an asteroid to protect it while it travels through space to reach some other planet. In this case it is a gift, a guitar, rather than just a message.

Yeah, it's practically never used to mean "whorehouse". I didn't even know it meant that before... I most ususually hear it in the sentence "C'est quoi ce boxon ?" => "What's this mess ?"

I find it amazing how impossible it was to find a different defintion than "brothel" in the typical online dictionaries. It's as if they all copy from each other.

I did some research, the Ipad is a Tablet.

So, this must be a puzzle - low profile game like those little Dora The Explorer games from LWS.


Fantastic.

As much as I think the iPad is crazy overrated/overpriced relative to a notepad, it does have pretty elbaorate games on it.....Re4 for example.
It probably is a puzzle, but more down to budget reasons,

Actually i think all Tablets are overrated. They are as portable as a notepad is, but you can do less things with them, and they cost more. I don't understand the reason of their success

DECENT tablets are good. (especialy for artists)
Like this one;
http://www.htc.com/www/product/flyer/overviewb.html
(windows7,multitouch+wacom support, good enough to run Heroes5-ish games,sub 700euros)

Why anyone buys the crippled large iPad ones (and the clones) is beyond me though

Its basicly like a classic controller with a large, semi-decent res, DS style touchscreen in the middle. Nothing to fancy really.
It also has gyros, but I think in that form factor they will only end up being used for gun-turret style aiming and rolling ball games.....cant picture anyone playing golf or tennis with the thing :P

I hope to be proved wrong but nothing really struct me as inspirational with the thing.

Id rather they just evolved the Wiimote design.

I quite like this PC version of it;
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=auHSE...mbedded#at=291

Basicly two identical sections both with analogue sticks and motion sensing.

Orani !!!!! Happy to see you back

So, Axx looked at the website of Ludoïd and saw that there was a new project called Boxon, and it turned out that it has more than one meaning in french, one of them is whorehouse and the other is mess (but a really big one). As you can guess, we spoke a bit about it

What about you ? It's been a looong time. How have you been ?

By the way, i should answer here:

boxon in french is (was...) used to mean "what's this mess ?" as Link said.
As you need to clean up levels filled with tiles (could be boxes) I found it sounds like an english word related to boxes you have to organize
(please tell me if there is some terrible other meaning ???)
