Well, I have a game, it runs, it plays and it doesn't look completely like crap. It could be better but not in 5 minutes. Go, download it and tell me how bad it is 'PIG Pilot'. Night.

Well, after 2 days of work (and time will be limited until next Saturday) I have everything except the game. I do have :
- An animated menu
- Text drawing
- An introduction (aka 5 pages of explaination as to why the game fits the theme)
- A high score table that works (and you can edit the names)
- A credits page.
- A texure manager
- A sound manager
- A main loop that really works
- A headache
Yes, it's called PIG Pilot. That is of course in reference to the 'Pipeline Inspection Gauge' which is used to clear out pipes, not pork.
Well, I've just signed up on the basis I'd give it a go just like I gave the Ludum Dare 48 hour competitions a go. With any luck I might actually get something that I'm half way happy with given 7 days (well 3 days and 4 evenings, bless the August Bank Holiday). I did actually manage something good on the last Ludum Dare competition but was stymed at the last moment by a strange bug that stopping it running under Windows (I work under Linux).
A small question. Unlike Ludum Dare this competition allows existing artwork, music and SFX, I know that I can use free stuff I've downloaded off the net but can I use the contents of the SFX / Loops / Clipart CDs I have as long as I can redistribute the data with the game ? The CDs were bought and the rule isn't very clear. In the interests of fair play is it enough that everybody could have access to the same assets ?
