You may have noticed that we've put up a new version of the "SET" card game. We're quite excited about this because not only is it the first update to Gamepixies in a few years, but it also features balloons (Play the time trial and see).
The web has moved on a lot in the almost five years since we started Gamepixies - I ended up with some time on my hands, about a million things I wanted to do with the site and a heap of web technologies I wanted to play with so it was pretty exciting to build the new version of SET and see what could be done.
We hope you like the new version. If you run an older browser (e.g. Internet Explorer version 8 or below) you may have problems with it. If that's the case, may we suggest getting hold of Google Chrome or Firefox - you'll probably find the whole internet starts looking prettier, birds start singing, etc. but most importantly you'll be able to see our balloons.
To get to the new version, go to the SET game (or time trial) of your choice and click on "Try the new version of SET". It will remember your preference for next time, or you can go back to the old version for now (but it won't be around for ever).
We're still finishing up a few bits and pieces and trying to test it in more browsers - please write below if you have any ideas or comments.
[Update 24/11/11] - We've tested it in a few more browsers and added more features that were in the old version (e.g. support for colour blind users, statistics at the end).
