That's a good idea.

That would give me time to tweak stuff/slack off until its release. Hopefully the final product will be better going that route. I guess I should still try and set a deadline to get the main "TO-DO" done by mid summer. Then there's options to fix things until December.

NEMB Pumpkins in the Halloween challenge is a great idea! They should definitely be part of it. Hmm... chicken feet makes me think of Baba Yaga's house (which is also creepy).

          Maybe side scroll view could be haunted house themed or something "spooky". QB has BSAVE/BLOAD which loads and saves raw data. There are ways to load in bitmaps easily in QB. They can only be 256 colors in screen 13 and are usually subject to some dithering. There was a game back in the day "Lunatix:... more

            What if you inverted gravity? Maybe your character is a ghost and you have to avoid going up otherwise you'll float away? I'm just trying to think of halloweeny things that aren't the same old same old.
            • That's a neat idea. There was a game Haunting starring Polterguy for Sega Genesis where if you got too low on ectoplasm, you were sent to a hell like place where you had to refill it in order to come back to the house to continue haunting. Maybe something like that if you float away? Hmm. I... more
