@cancel this is entirely too believable. gorgeous job.

@cancel do you have any thoughts on the Playdate ? are you planning to get it, maybe do something in it ?

@mario_afk it looks cool, but the only ideas for games I ever have require more advanced input methods.

@cancel I find it hard to think about ideas with the crank but the more I use it more ideas come

@cancel I love this. Almost feels like it's missing a "Shareware, please buy" message somewhere!

@lunarvale it's probably doable, but if you wanted to completely replicate the original, you would need multiple floppies and you'd probably have to swap between them when playing.

@lunarvale some things you would probably need to cut, like the real-time collision detection between different projectiles and between projectiles and drones.

@lunarvale well, I guess you could still do those if you want, but it would make everything harder :)
