Well, if we keep up this progress, we might have a three stage demo out by Christmas of this year. But what I'm really hoping for is a shot at this year's POTY so we're gonna try to get this thing rolling ASAP. Because there's all these 2012 things that the world's gonna end, so I might not get another chance at a POTY.

Erh. Apocalypse aside, I'm gonna see how fast I can get a *real* demo out.

We can probably put in a Duck Hunt mode. (j/k)

But seriously, with how advanced the script system is going to be, we might add in a Tetris mode just to see how far we can take the idea.

Currently on the task list is putting in actual radially moving bullets. If I can get that done tonight, I might ask Geekboy pull together a (few) script(s) to demonstrate it.

Geekboy said it. I was thinking of abusing CaDan's bullet and script engines to form a "stage" where instead of actually shooting things, you play a game of Tetris using an amalgamation of 2x2 bullets as the tetrominoes.

This wouldn't actually be a serious use of the CaDan script system, but it would be pushing the limits on what you could get it to actually do. A variation of this would be building a version of Pong for it.

Well sirs. You can shoot now. Can't hit anything yet but you can most certainly shoot stuff.
