I wasn't able to do any work on my entry until about 9pm last night, so I went straight through the night.
Combat is now almost entirely implemented. \o/
The quality of my code is also shot to pieces. \o/
I can only barely think or program straight. \o/
I'm on the final death march now, time is incredibly tight, but I'm over the hump, so things are looking good.
About fifteen hours remain, and I've still got some hefty tasks ahead, but at least the game looks deliverable at this point.
