While the rest of us are (im)patiently waiting for Luca Redwood's 10000000 [$2.99] followup You Must Build a Boat which was revealed earlier this year, he's apparently working on something else. That "something else" is Smarter Than You, a multiplayer social-y game that looks a little bit like a significantly spruced up version of rock-paper-scissors in the just-released "instructional video":

No word yet on what this means for You Must Build a Boat, or when it's going to be released… But, to be fair, in one of my first conversations with Luca he mentioned he didn't want to become "the 10000000 guy", so it it that much of a surprise to see him working on something else? Maybe, maybe not.

Either way, I still must build a boat.

    That's an awesome trailer for an awesome concept ^_^

    By the way, I think there's nothing wrong with being "The 10000000 guy." Genius game. That's a compliment.

    Personally rather have a paddle, namely if on a creek!

    Doesn't make much sense to me! It all seems like a guessing game, therefore it take the smarter than you out of the equation

      Extremely valid point. Really.

    This video is glitching out a lot, hopefully we'll have a better one by the release.

    • Isarun Chamveha

      I think it is intended (whatever the reason is) as you can see the whole I am AI thing in the end of the video. It makes the video too scary, though!

    • Honki

      Not sure if serious.

      • thiagovscoelho

        Can't you see the glitching on the video?
        Then again, the game isn't released yet.

    Take my money already!

  • tommytwotits

    I am disappointed, I really want to build a boat.

    Almost makes me think it SEEMS to be against people around the world... but is really always against a master AI that gets smarter and smarter. A Turing Test in your pocket!
