I have named my entry "Virux" and its being coded in BlitzMax-NG without any additional libraries.

I've drawn most of the graphics including two font sizes and got the Splash/Lobby/Help/Play screens working. The play state has a pause, three lives, a score counter and collision detection so I'm pretty much done with the core mechanics.

Next step is to get the AI behaviour working properly and add audio.

I've attached an image containing the main antagonist...

As you can see from my awesome attached screenshot of my games current title screen, I have started.

I had a big idea for something that I was discussing with blinkok but it's just way too ambitious for me to pull that off in two months, so I'm going back to basics to start with then I can see how much I can expand on it. That's all I'm saying for now apart from it may also involve mini-games as well as the main game.

@Xerra, you forever go the extra mile.... I managed a paper prototype at the weekend, however the jury is out on its appeal as a 'game'. Bethesda are already quaking in their boots 😁

@Scaremonger, love your protagonist! It's alive, pulsing away.... Ready to spread....

Nah - start small and work your way towards it...

I'll say it again (and probably again later), go back to the 80's and primitive games. They have playability over graphics. learn what they did and how they did it and then add your flair on top of their bones :)

You can do it...

I am doing this. So tempted to show you another screenshot which would give away the first part of the game straight off. I'll give you a clue, erm, 1983.
