25: It's an idea I will certainly ponder in an update. The laundry list of things that still have to be done is astronomically huge.

That's actually the trooth for me, which I've learned to deal with in other ways. So I hope this game can motivate me to train my math skills so I can get better at it... smile

I really enjoyed the maths games myself, I used to love mental maths at school and playing the various interlectual games in crazy party got my love for this sort of thing going again.
I need to check Alexa to see what is happening, and I'll look forward to seeing it in Brain station.

Btw Liam I'd appreciate knowing whether or not the games will have separate accounts for tracking player statistics etc.

With our dreaming and singing, Ceaseless and sorrowless we! The glory about us clinging Of the glorious futures we see,
Our souls with high music ringing; O men! It must ever be
That we dwell in our dreaming and singing, A little apart from ye. (Arthur O'Shaughnessy 1873.)

Not quite sure what you mean. does each individual game have a separate account? No. That would be time-consuming to manage 25 accounts for the package. Also. Keep in mind that the statistics thing isn't garanteed. It's something I'm looking at possibly making.

A few minor updates because... Who doesn't love updates?
The achievement count will be creeping close to 200 tonight as hopefully a new game is going in.
the current achievement count has hit 175 including a new category of achievement for collecting certain totals of coins.
People who play on mac or who play with SAPI speech will enjoy having their sapi cooperate nicely. No more having menu items continue to speak when you press enter. SAPI now pays attention to what's going on and keeps up with the game.
I can not wait to get this game released for you guys, and hopefully this will happen in the first half of 2018. Everything looks like it's on track for a release some time in June. Again. Right now this is just an estimate as things to happen to push release dates closer, and further from the intended goal.

Hi all.
Firstly thats true about maths, my maths to a point isn't that good either, never was in school, all those concepts and the like, never got into my head, so many visual elements, this should be interesting.
However, there are a few definitions I want to be defined.
Firstly While I know that wine is a windows emulator for linux and mac, and that wineskin is the wine emulator for windows stuff on a mac, what is a skin or a wineskin.
Is it some sort of archive with the game in it to run on wine or is it like a virtual machine.
What is writing a skin for a game.
I am probably being stupid but I havn't heard before the term of skinning a game.
Now In the traditional terms I know a skin is an interface, usually a gui or pictorial interface for something like vlc and usually is a lot of images, but this aint it.

An update. Brain Station is now up to 18 games and 241 achievements. The focus has been on some fun word and typing games, and I think you're going to love what I've got in store. I'm hoping to start demoing some of the new games in a month or so. There are 5 or 6 games left to make, but you never know. Some more might end up getting worked on along the way.
