Sooo… yeah.  I went to bed last night and slept.  I slept a whoooole lot.  I then spent a while today sitting around pondering the theme.  And another while just playing Minecraft.  Finally, about an hour ago I started actual code and art work on my submission!  My self-direction question now is:  How long do I have to work before I end up sleeping again?  Maybe I can somehow pull off 25 hours of straight work?

Anyway!  My game is called Breakdown Countdown!  The back-story goes something like this:

The greatest accomplishment in the history of our people is only seconds away!  We’re finally going into space, to explore the great unknown!  The countdown timer ticks away… Media from all over the globe has swarmed to our space center.  T-minus 24 hours… The World President has arrived to watch the launch in person!  T-minus 1 hour… Our brave astronauts are sealed away in their capsule.  T-minus 10 minutes…  The fuel lines are removed, the hatched are locked, all systems are go.  T-minus 1 minute… WHAT’S THIS?!  Through some cartoonish twist of fate, our mighty space-faring ship has suddenly collapsed into pieces on the launch pad!  It’s too late to stop the ignition sequence!  Quick, send the engineers in the put it back together as best they can!  It’s all riding on their skills now!  T-minus 10 seconds…
