Generation X-wing
That's got to be the death star
I used to dream about the future
I used to dream about a lot of things

- MGB, Generation X-wing


I've finally released my first real game. Overall, I'm pretty pleased - it didn't turn out quite as well as I'd hoped, but definitely better than I expected. It looks worse but plays better than projected. I guess the big lesson is - if you base an SVGA game on a VGA one, you'd better create four times the graphics, or it's going to look sparse. Oh well. IMO, this is exactly what pygame needs right now - we're technically correct, complete and (nearly) bug free. We just need to attract developers, and what better way than finished product?

Something rules, something sucks

This is good: Marbles is a lot of fun.
This is lame: this thread about SMAC, the Sims and Loki.

Kill the moon, turn out the sun
Lock your door and load your gun
Free at last, yeah the time has come
To choose

- MGB, Omissions of the Omen
