Frontierville - Goodbye Goose Army

Frontierville is an odd game. With no actual way to win, you need to come up with your own goals. Many people try to build a perfect farm, I wanted to build the perfect army.



Could I fill every single square on my farm with a friendly, but deadly, goose? At 300 gold each, this wasn't easy -- I had to do weeks of harvesting peanuts to raise the cash. Finally, with more cash than BPs planned dividend payments to shareholders this year, I began to recruit my army.

Unfortunately, technical problems started to surface. As the goose army's ranks increased, my framerate dropped. I switched to chrome which gave me a frame rate boost, but the geese relentlessly pecked at my performance. I started managing my goose army at work where I had access to an 8-core processor computer, but no computer seemed capable of rendering that many feathers.

There is nothing sadder than having an ideal, a dream, and realizing that while it's theoretically possible it's just to beautiful to exist in Adobe Flash Player 10. Fairwell goose army.
