  1. PGD Mini Compo - Day 1 progress

    So, the PGD mini compos number 1 (or shall we say 0 in programmer talk ?) finally got underway...

    As a rule of thumb, I'll most likely be posting quite often on progress and etc related to my game entry - since its a habbit I got into during the LD20 and now can't get rid of it... Whipped out exactly the same custom prometheus revision as the Ludum Dare challenge bar a few tweaks in constants, images, config handling and other minor mods.

  2. PGD Mini Compo - Are you ready?

    As luck would have it, its still exam week (or more appropriately exam month ) and as with all things in life, it all has to happen at the same time...

    Oh well. Things look better than Ludum Dare #20 on my end in the run up for the PGD Mini Compo (we need a cool acronym for this one, hit me up on the comments with any ideas ).

  5. Documentation Live

    And in an effort to improve Prometheus documentation, dodge revision and spend bored hours on work experince Prometheus documentation finally goes live, or at least what bits of it are relevant. Find out the very familiar and in some instance annoying interface fpdoc(?) generates over at prometheuslib.sourceforge.net/Docs (and it looks to be case sensitive...
