Music bug fix

I've uploaded a fix for the non-repeating music bug, so you can now enjoy endless Beijing Opera if you want. :-)

Thanks to everyone who said nice things about my little game! It ranked quite a lot higher than I expected.

Someone said the character looked more Japanese than Chinese. That may be true, but it was one of the images that came up when I googled for "chinese doll", so it's all Google's fault. :-)

The music is definitely Chinese, though. From the web site: "Beijing Opera (Jingju) students in a class, playing the jing'erhu, at the National Academy of Chinese Theatre Arts in Beijing."

Stray hornets: Yes, the nasty little things can be a bit unpredictable. Maybe they should die if they're too far away from the main swarm for too long, or something.

I think I may have found out why the music isn't looping like it should -- I'll post an update if I manage to fix it.

In any case, it's been fun getting back to PyWeek after being away from it for a couple of years, and I hope to see you all again next time!

Released... something.

Got off to a late start, so there won't be much content in this game.

I'm experimenting with giving everything a hand-drawn look this time. Not sure whether it looks cute or crap. You decide.

One thing I've learned is that making things look rough actually takes longer than making them look neat and tidy. :-(
