What if we made Wikipedia into game... Wait, there's Wikipedia Maze!

I've not post about ASP.Net MVC much, and so when I saw this I thought it would make a great post. Not only do we get SQL Server, ASP MVC3, VS2010 but we get an interesting game too!

About Wikipedia Maze

"Wikipedia maze is a game based on the popular Wikipedia website. The concept is simple; Starting with a particular topic try and navigate to the designated end topic in as few clicks as possible following only links to other topics.

Users have the opportunity to earn points from either solving or creating puzzles. When certain benchmarks are reached users are awarded badges to show off their achievements.

I found today's post via DotNetShoutOut and the UnknownDev - Wikipedia Maze - Open Source post.

DotNetShoutOut, and DotNetKicks, are great resources to help keep up with what's happening in the .Net space (and given the DotNetShoutOut source is available via http://kigg.codeplex.com/ it's likely I'm going to dedicate a post to it in the future... Wink
