We have been working all day now, and except for some starting issues we are now gaining momentum. We still haven't made anything runnable but a lot of the core functionality of the engine is in place. We basically only need to complete the rendering system and add some placeholder scripts to have a running prototype. Our writer has made a first draft for the beginning of the game and our UI and gameplay sketches looks pretty nice. I'm going to bed now but two of the others will continue. Hopefully they'll have something nice to show in the morning.
