Really good read. As someone who started a large open source project and has toyed with the idea of doing a game in HTML5 it's nice to read how other developers got started with their current projects.

I initially started playing Illy due to one of Beau's articles. It's amazing the depth the game has. I can keep in touch with alliance members on my phone and find myself playing it a lot. Having such a friendly community was a big turn on to playing the game. Try it, at least complete the tutorial to see if you dig it. It's slow at first, but gets more entertaining the faster you get resources to build and understand the complexity of the game.

Here is a recruitment link, gives a bonus of prestige if the player uses it gets to 100 population. http://illyriad.com/?58996 Be sure to claim prestige once every 24 hours on the herald page, it's worth a lot more than the resources. The herald is located under the H button next to the world map. Here is a new player guide to offer some direction http://forum.illyriad.co.uk/tips-for-new-players_topic1894.html

I think this game is great for tablet and smart phone play while you have spare time or perhaps coffee shop leisure. Still working on a tablet for some day soon.
