I'm continuing this thread from Gone Gold's forums for those of you who were interested. Unfortunately I didn't save a copy of the thread, so any question/answers there are gone
On a bright note, however, I do have a lot of news about the game.
First bit of news: There will actually be two different games with the same ruleset released. The first game will NOT be first person, although it will still be a dungeon crawl; nor will it be 3-D. The second game will use the exact same rules, but will be a 3-D game in first person.
Why this change? That leads to the second bit of news:
I've added another programmer to the team, a good friend of mine at school. He has a 2-D tile based graphics engine already written, and it's that engine that will be used for the initial release. I will be developing my own 3-D engine at a later time (more towards my originally planned, 1 to 1.5 year schedule for that version).
I'll have screenshots of the engine (not neccesarily screenshots of our game, though) by the end of the week.
