Basic Gameplay

Andrew and I have fleshed out the basic ideas of our game (hint: RTS with string building material) and we have started coding.

We really wish there was a more real-time way to collaborate... We are often working on the same thing and want to watch each other. After PyWeek, we're planning to work on a networked Python IDE showing other's changes @ progress in real-time.

If you use the commandline to do you editing, you can use screen. If not using the command line, why not connect to the same VNC connection? If those don't work good luck on the IDE, sounds neat, especially if controlling the IDE wasn't binary.
If you can't use screen(which is pretty cool)...

"Gobby is a free collaborative editor supporting multiple documents in one session and a multi-user chat. It runs on Microsoft Windows, Mac OS X, Linux and other Unix-like platforms. "
Gobby is pretty nice. There's an old thing called playsh too, which perhaps could be reworked.
