Still using miru which was announced before last competition. Note that hg repos has moved to bitbucket..

And miru depends on pyglet.


No Assets

In prior competitions, my team's submissions have always been very asset-heavy. This time I've decided to have zero data files and accomplish all visual effects procedurally. It looks like my game will have no sound unless a time fairy visits me.


I just deleted all my files

Here is a sad story. I just deleted all my files for the project.

Getting ready for the submission I typed:

  $ find . .*pyc -delete

Instead of:

  $ find . -name *.pyc -delete

That's the first time I've done such. And it was all f'ing complete. Menus. Levels. High Scores. Not to mention bundles of little bug fixes around score accumulation and polishing. And reiserfsck only recovered the friggin' README ... I was sweating bullets trying to shut down all the daemon processes probably writing to /home before I could unmount it and start the failed recovery.

Anyhow, I at least had a tarball of a very incomplete version from 2 days ago. So that's my submission. No menus, no levels, no high scores. And lots of bugs.
