A year after the announcement of the “Lottery Codex” online, The Next Week reports that the project has been shelved.
“Lotteries were created to be an exciting and easy way to participate in social events,” the codepoints website reads.
“In contrast, the Lottery Codepoint has been designed for a specific demographic: women, who have had more experience with lottery and therefore more time to prepare,” the website adds.
Lottery organizers told the publication that they were working on new lottery models, but that they could not give an exact date for when the codewatch might return.
They noted that the codenames “Codex tellers” and “codex” are a reference to the “codewalker” and the “tapper,” the fictional role models for women in the games.
Lotteries are not the only online games that are struggling with their identity.
As the Inquisitr previously reported, a new version of Clash Royale, the first-person shooter, is in the works, with developer Bluehole promising “the largest and most complex multiplayer gaming experience ever built.”
As part of its effort to diversify its audience, Bluehole also announced that it would create a free mobile app for the app store.
