Alright, I'm sorry to inform you all that I'm withdrawing from the contest.
I have too much on my plate right now, and unfortunately calc programs are at the bottom of the totem pole. I haven't done anything since the last screenie, and I'm posting the source now, so if anyone wants to finish this or whatever, feel free. You can take the sprites too, and there's some other useful crap like RLE compression/decompression routines, a pretty good tilemapper, a kick-trash sprite editor (be warned though, its not exactly user friendly) and maybe some other stuff. Anyways, feel free to take what you want, but if you use anything I came up with I'd like a little credit.
