Yeah...this week was just too crazy. I got a certain amount of time in, but it was all 20 minutes here and 40 minutes there and was just too fragmented for an idea this math heavy. On Friday I sat down and re-evaluated and sketched some level designs and progression on paper. I still think the idea has merit, and I still think I could have accomplished it in a more normal week. But family and work come first, so that's OK. I'll keep working on the idea. And maybe next year I'll try again and actually finish something.
It has been a lot of fun skimming through everyone's progress, though I haven't made the time to comment. Best of luck to you all!
