    Count me in

    I don’t have a lot of time free this weekend, so I’m doing a split Saturday + Monday 48 hour block.

    I’m thinking of prototyping a game I’ve wanted to develop for a while. The basic idea is that there are a number of attractive / repulsive balls in an environment. Each surface in the environment, as well as each ball, has a polarity (somewhat like gravity, or electrostatic charge). Like states repell, opposite states attract. A ball’s polarity can be flipped by pressing a corresponding key. We can’t move the balls directly, but by altering their polarity we can push or pull them using nearby objects.

    Here’s my initial screen shot :)

      And if anyone knows how this interface can be persuaded not to change the aspect ratio and size of screen shots, I will credit them in the game :)
