Stressful day.

Finished CMSC434 project in the nick of time today (monday). So, that class is over now. The results were not great, but I think it's acceptable. Not like my other finished class, ENGL393, whose final project was not acceptable to me at all.

I think I severely disappointed kartos when I explained exactly how a top-down space shooter works today. A good way to tell if your communications skills suck is if you're working with someone on a project for like a year, and after that time, they still don't know what it is :(

I'm not ready for my accounting final. Maybe sleeping will help. Yeah.

Uh, sort of. Ever played Star Control 2? (If not, you should. You can get the PC port of the 3DO version for free now.)

Ah, okay.

The goal of this one is just "can I make a game that's fun to play?" If that succeeds, then I'd feel more comfortable with investing way too much time into something more complicated.

Top-down shooters rock my socks.

<question variety="stupid">
What platform(s) is this being developed for?

It's SDL, Ogg Vorbis, and OpenGL, so I'm targetting Windows, Linux, and OS X. But presumably anything that has those libraries should work.
