Five Interviews Conducted!

I have conducted five interviews so far! The results have been very interesting since I am interviewing a much younger demographic than I had intended when I began the project.

Regardless, the results are not just interesting, but I think they will lead to innovative design recommendations for builders of, what I argue, are "narrative systems" like Gmail.

I still need another participant or two, so if you are interested, please let me know!

Plus you get $20 for your time! 

All interviews are conducted via instant messenger. You should be a daily user of Gmail with at least 5,000 messages in your archive. Also, in keeping with my younger demographic, you should be around 18-22-ish. Send me an email at Thanks!

Gmail What Are You Doing?

Gmail seems to be doing some strange things, so Jeremy is focusing on doing the final in-game fixes. Hopefully, he will get a chance to look at the larger code issues before he leaves for his new job in California!

Still Fixing Bugs

We are still working on bug fixes. Soon, we also hope to have our female sprites in the game! They are already made, but they need a few adjustments.

Bug Fixes

Jeremy fixed some new bugs that are popping up. We think Gmail is messing with how they do IMAP, and this is causing some very annoying issues. Still, the game is relatively stable, and I hope to begin some interviews soon!
