So I thought it might be nice to first work on a few things that will make the slow onerous tasks of creating this game easier. Here are a few short term goals to get me underway:
The reader will note that I'm one of those cheap, open source using bastards. If anything, that's going to be the saving grace of this whole project. I'm discovering there's even a wealth of game specific libraries and components -- quality stuff, mind you -- that's available as open source. More on that later.
