Today I added a sprite object which lets me move and resize a textured quad easily (I just realized that I need to add rotation and flipping in there some where.) I also added a SpriteSheet class (and an associated file format) that lets me add animated objects all over the place. It needs some work (at the moment it only has one animation.) I also added an animation file which is nice.
Here's a quick pic of where I'm at right now. You can't tell, but both of them are animated.
