Well that was a bust

Well, I thought of a pretty interesting game idea based around a standard fighting or shooting game, but with weapons deterministically generated from input text files.  The idea would be that you would have the game import fanfiction, and then semi-literally fight with fanfiction.

Sadly, figuring out how to do the string parsing was more of a job than I expected, and I was also distracted with other things going on.  And now I have to cut off my time a day early, because there’s a large project due next week I haven’t started.  Oh well.

The takeaway here, though, is the number of really interesting ideas I came up with for games with unconventional weapons.  This particular fanfiction fighter I’m going to pursue in more spare time I have later on.
