Announcing: Winnable Solitaire
It's time to unveil a pet project of mine: Winnable Solitaire
This game is very much like the Solitaire program that comes with Windows, with one major difference: Every game is winnable.
The price is $12. A free demo download is available. I expect that the app will work on most Windows PCs.
I am anticipating that some folks will want to know WHY I would do something like this. You'll have to wait for my next MSDN column to get the answer to that question. For now, I will say this:
Winnable Solitaire is a pet project of mine, not a SourceGear product. I developed it for fun, and for the purpose of writing some articles about it. Yes, it is a real product, and yes, I am charging real money for it. However, I remain fully, 100% committed to my current job at SourceGear. This is not a job change for me, nor is it a change in direction for SourceGear.
The rest of the story will [hopefully] make sense when my next MSDN article gets published. I have submitted the article to the editors. It is scheduled for publication in early September.
In the meantime, if you get bored and need something to do, I recommend playing a few games of solitaire. :-)
