This will be my first entry in PyWeek. I expect to lose, and to have a great time doing it!

Well, it turns out that one week isn't long enough for me to finish a game by myself when I have to work four days of that week. Much of the gameplay is unfinished, but I've uploaded what I have to give an idea of it would have been like. There are no pegs pre-placed to tie strings between as there should be, but in this development version, pegs can be created arbitrarily by right-clicking. Ultimately, there would be a limited number of strings of different types and lengths available in the bottom toolbar, but that also hasn't been implemented yet.
The way my game is shaping up, it's going to be a Lemmings-style game, with ants trying to cross a chasm over strings that are placed by the player. The available strings are limited in length and number, forcing the player to carefully choose a combination of routes between the pre-placed posts in order to lose as few ants to the chasm as possible. As an added complication, overloaded strings will break.
