So it's week 5, what has been going on?
The class has split into three groups, working on different games. My group's idea is a social update to the venerable likes of robocode, though how exactly that is going to pan out is still debatable.
Ideally, this would comprise of a wrapper around the basic game, not requiring much tweaking of the internals, though a new interface would be required for use on the web. All in all the class is shaping up to be pretty interesting.
