New Project!

I said a while back that I'd be starting a new project with smaller scope.  

Well, it took me long enough but I've finally made a start!

My new project is an arcade-style exploration game in a similar vein to the old classics like Thrust, Solar Jetman and Lunar Lander.

I've made a modest start and got my rocket moving.  I've also implemented a very simple fuel mechanic and am able to pickup nearby objects with my tractor beam. 

I'm aiming to get the first level completely blocked out this week, so I can gauge whether the experience is as fun as I think it is.  It'll then be time to decide whether to run full steam into production or not.  

I'm hoping that this will become my first commercially released game, so fingers crossed.
