One month ago I had a breakthrough. I think I can now code the original idea, but in a super simple way. After a month of experimenting I am further ahead than I was after six months of the previous attempt. This will actually work!!! Here are some test screenshots. The finished version will look a lot nicer, this is just testing the code.
So once again I say to my every patient imaginary readers, watch this space! It doesn't matter how long the journey takes, it's where you finish that matters. Tedagame will change the world. You just watch.
