Re: [ruby-89] Ruby Hackfest 1: The Centipede Showdown TONIGHT!

From: Elijah M.
Sent on: Wednesday, August 27, 2008 6:23 PM

I meant to do a recap the night after but somehow I missed that window!

Centipede was hacked on for about 4 hours, some of which was devoted
to getting everyone familiar with git and setup with gosu! Chris
Zelenak and myself hacked on it a bit in the days after the hackfest
to fix a few lingering issues.

  * a deadly wand that shoots one "thing" at enemies and mushrooms
  * a crazy centipede who is somewhat prone to crashing the game at
this moment :)
  * flea who drops mushrooms
  * spider who only makes cool noises and moves around
  * shootable mushrooms
  * sounds for pretty much everything

Want to try out the code?

  # install gosu
  gem install gosu # this works on mac, not so easy on linux

  git clone git://­/centipede.git

If anyone wants commit access to the main repo just ask.
