Hotelbuster is a free cross-platform tilebased, role-based strategy game. According to the existing board game hotel from MB(GER) we implemented the existing board game with some extensions completely in a Client-Server based Java Application We used different Java technologies like XML and Socket-Programming, Graphic manipulation(Double Buffering etc..) There are only a few implementations of the Hotel board game. Most of the implementations are either not portable or do hardly provide a decent ruleset and are not extensible at all as well. This implementation is designed to be portable. It follows the ruleset of the original Hotel board-game. The documentation and structures are following the lines determined by the Rational Unified Process(RUP) See the project vision for more information Hotelbuster is Free Software, distributed under the terms of the GPL General Public License.

I'm sure this game will be worthwhile for the developers, but I'm not sure what good it does for the community.

I'm still not 100% on whether writing a game just because you want to is a valid reason for seeing it on dev.java.net. In the past people have said if you just want free space to develop, use sourceforge.

Sounds like this might be illegal, unless you've purchased the rights to the original game concept.

I also agree with Kev, that we should be biased towards projects that have clear benefit for the community.

These sound like "no" votes to me.  As they have not been addressed and there are no positive votes I am closing this vote as a "nay" result.
