Hoping the theme will be inspiring and will kick me into creating a little game.
I fancy doing something in Silverlight has I’ve never used it. If I do, I may use some of the code from this tutorial. http://cgeers.com/category/programming/silverlight/
If not in silverlight, xna will be the framework of choice. Will use a subversion repository and perhaps TeamCity for CI and Build.
As usual, Visual Studio 2010, Paint.Net and perhaps a microphone for sound effects or music.
Finger cross I get the time and inspiration.
