Damn, it got late. Anyway, map drawing is working. The crazy Allegro data store is working too, though I'm having to write some tools for it. Next: sprites.

I'm tagging these entries godfrom (literally: deus ex) since I haven't thought of a clever name yet for a game about cyborgs and conspiracies (Cyborg Conspiracy!).

How much verisimilitude are you shooting for here? Because "Cyborg Conspiracy" (with or without the exclamation point) is probably a good, DOS-era name for a DOS-era game about cyborgs and conspiracies.

Oh if I can't think of anything else, I'll definitely use it.

The original working title for Deus Ex was Shooter.

Heh. Doesn't every other programmer have something called Shooter in their projects directory? :)

You could call it "...Machina".

Kind of like Codename Gordon? :)

(Agh! The developer of that game went tits up, and Valve removed it from Steam because their domain name got bought by a porn site!)

Ya like that except without all the porn....

On the other hand.... sprite based porn is a market that has almost certainly been underdeveloped!

Overdeveloped

You don't seem to hang out on the fringes of taste in the weaboo/japanese fanboy subculture. There's too much as is.

Re: Overdeveloped

Your right, I'm shamed. I didn't know anyone would want to squint at sprites when they can look at crapy deviantart fanart instead. In so doing I forgot my own law of fetishes. By uttering a fetish outloud you inflict it upon others as if struck by lightning.

It would be fun to have fake screenshots from the game that godfrom allegedly steals its graphics tiles from, arranged in the same manner as the Duke 2 & Turrican comparison site.
