Needless to say, and as usual, I couldn't manage to meet the deadline. I've progressed a lot, though. My university classes start tomorrow, but I don't really care. ;) It took me several days just to warm up and tune my mind to all development affairs after so many months. I can't afford to quit and do that again, ever! :P So, I'll continue to work at full throttle. So many difficult problems to solve and nice features to implement... that's what matter the most!

Since the previous announcement I've been working relentlessly on MININIM. I've decided to record some videos to show its current state of development. Here is the first one. I hope you enjoy! Soon I'll publish recordings about other major features already implemented.

Nice video.
The menu certainly looks useful for those who prefer mouse interaction.
Little hint at Lua based video mode functionality too.
It'll be interesting to see the other videos, and of course playtest with the next release.

It's an impressive technical feat. Maybe when you've released the next version, Princed and PoPOT should, in posts about the release, explicitly address (/call to arms) Lua coders.

That is amazing! You should send a conference/panel proposal to the next GDC http://www.gdconf.com/ to demonstrate your project, would really be cool!

I'd love, if only I had the financial resources to attend.

That would be another step, if you get approved, we can have a crowd funding or get a sponsor, first apply :)

Thank you very much for your support!

The GDC 2018 Call for Submissions deadline is August 17, 2017 at 11:59pm PT.
Does that mean I'll only have a chance next year? The call for submissions for VRDC (doesn't apply yet to MININIM ;)) and the GDC Summits are still open. For the latter, I think the closest matching category for MININIM is the "Independent Games Summit". Do you think I should apply for that?

So, now we can use DOS and Mac graphics, and even automatically alternate between the two every second. :)

At 9:00-9:30, you speak about putting more stars onto the sky, but I don't see any...
That might be because the video plays only in 360p.
The quality selection menu shows only three options: Automatic, 360p, and a link to this: https://support.google.com/youtube/answer/6322658?hl=en
It says Firefox needs at least Windows 7 for better quality options. Great...

BTW, I see you're using Windows 3.1-style window borders.

To be fair, Windows 7 arrived eight years ago.
In computer time that's forever ago for almost everything.
