6. Added secret missions.

With this, I call the game version 30!

A treat to all Final Fantasy Fans (FFF)



Now I seldom watch movies.

One of the classics is Final Fantasy Advent Children released in 2005.
In July 2009, they released an updated version Final Fantasy Advent Children Complete.

Look what is produced with a budget of 100Million US Dollar.

Cyberjaya Trip

Many are asking, so I must well post here. I met a few key person in Cyberjaya, both in Cnergy and academicians.

1. Alwyn Goh [CEO of Cnergy]

Summary: He told me to proceed with manufacturing. About the MMU logo usage, he say for Cnergy startups (us) there is no restriction, and if we were to hit it "big" only Cnergy will arrange for any forms of payment. There might be no payment or a very minimal payment, as Alwyn mentioned we can 'play around with the terms' so it will cause financial problems.

Alwyn also suggested to me to create a digital or online version of the game. This is we can apply for funding from MDEC. "Its free money anyway". I'll be looking into this after the manufacturing process has been initiated.

2. Eric [MMU President's special assistant in Cyberjaya]

Summary: Gave him a copy of my business plan. He suggested I create a graphical version of the business plan (power point format) so he can share it with interested parties. As a bonus, he will be sharing the board game idea to Leaderonomics. http://www.leaderonomics.com/ Hopefully they can be one of the training institute for us to approach once the game is done.

3. Mr. Mohd. Nor. Ismail

Summary: He is the coordinator for entrepreneurship in MMU Cyberjaya. We agreed verbally to have a board game session among his MBA students. If the results are encouraging he will find a way for us to collaborate in the future semesters.

4. Dr. Saravanan Muthaiyah

Summary: Deputy Dean for Faculty of Management in Cyberjaya. Showed him the board game and he was very excited to create a "interview tool" using the board game as research base. A little far fetch for me. Nonetheless, once the game is produced he say can use it in his training sessions.
