The engine is coming together nicely. Shouldn't take me too long to work out the bugs and then the game itself should come together pretty quickly. After this game though, it'll be nice to have this engine to build any future 2d games on - no more reinventing the wheel every time. It should also free up time for me to start realy working on getting my 3d stuff up to scratch, which I'm really looking forward to doing.
Anyway, I'll get the timer stuff finished tomorrow, and I'll get started on something else as well. Haven't decided what yet.
