I was digging through my old games and found my Jazz Jackrabbit CDs. Jazz 1 didn't run very well under NT -- the scrolling is choppy and the program I got to do SB emulation (Sound FX 2000) seems to need a lot more CPU than I have to work without skipping. Jazz 2 is even more fun than I remembered :)

And that got me thinking about how all the game companies are building these fancy shmancy 3D games, when sidescrollers are so cool! So, I believe I shall create a sidescroller based on my optimal game features. The main character gets lots of guns and armor, which can be really customized with powerups and stuff. Giant mecha robots, or at least power full body armour is a must. Good art is really important, almost as much as glitzy special effects: lots of them. The music will have to be tracked by an ex-demoscener who still remembers how. Oh, and the voice of the main character? Malcom McDowell, of course. Oh, and maybe some spaceships for good measure.

I can dream, can't I? :)
