I'd like to wish everyone a belated happy 2008. =)
I've lately been working on a new project in which I use ASCII characters to create all of the graphics. You can see a screenshot of the game in the Screenshots section. I also posted a short demo of the game on the forum in the 'Other Games' forum if you'd like to see how it's progressing so far. (Well, I might say! =))
In addition to serving as the engine to the current ASCII game, I will have the opportunity to use this engine for other games as well; this should help to shorten development time on future projects that I work on.
