@bobobobo: Yeah, it definitely goes beyond the bounds of proper cellular automata.

comment Change the tilemap shown on stage in Flixel
A plain add() is the same as this.add(); it will add the new member to the current instance of whatever class your function is defined in.

comment Who has the rights to the party game Mafia / Werewolf?
@Orin I believe Wizards has patents on mechanics and trademarks on terms like "tapping." Copyright is really only for published creative works (they've got copyright on the card designs, art, and text). I am also not a lawyer.

@Jimmy: There might not be a benefit; I wouldn't downvote an answer of "it's not, it's just traditional" (see Josh's answer).

comment Is ActionScript 3 used by Serious Indie Developers?
A quick example off the top of my head: Terry Cavanagh's Super Hexagon is a mobile game written in AS3 that's been quite successful. Of course, it's worth noting that Cavanagh's VVVVVV ended up getting ported from AS3 to native code some time after release due to the limitations of the Flash runtime.
