Happy Thanksgiving, dear readers*!

I'm hoping to get some good work done over the holiday weekend.  I'll be spending a lot of time at my parents', availing myself of their easy chair.  I find a good recliner is the most comfortable place for laptop-based development.

On Videos, and Them Not Existing

So I got some friends to play Let's Get Tanked! in its current state so I could capture a video.  Except I pressed the wrong button, and no video was captured.  Sadly I didn't realize it until much later.  There WILL BE VIDEO!  Just not as soon as I'd hoped.

Pow! Biff! Bop! Whammo!

That's right, folks.  Sound effects.  I haz them.

Actually, Let's Get Tanked (I now reveal the name of my current project!) has them, and collision detection between bullets and tanks.  Video coming as soon as I can hornswaggle three friends to play local multiplayer with me long enough to capture a quick film.

It's really starting to come together.  I am becoming cautiously optimistic.

Okay, okay, I'm golly-well excited!  It's starting to feel like a real game now that four people can drive their tanks around and shoot at each other, and hear a big "kaboom" when they get a hit.  Woo!
