I have been doing a major rewrite of the game engine I have been working on for two years. It is tedious and most of the time it is just plain boring. I decided to create a small side project just to make things interesting for a bit. I remembered hearing about a 48 hour game coding challenge and decided to try it out for myself. Although I gave myself 48 hours, I only put in about 6 hours of actual work.
It is a simple text based game called Galaxy Quest. There is room for a ton of improvement, but I decided to stop coding at the end of the time limit. I thought I would share the end result with those of you who may be interested.
The moral of this story: When things begin to seem mundane, do something simple and silly to make it fun again!

Edit: Although I have come close, I have not beat this game yet. If you are interested in trying, a good hint is to avoid fighting until you have a few upgrades.
