But once we make a game engine, we could use it to implement conversions later, if anybody was still interested. But better, in my mind, just to harvest the arcades for ideas.
True. With a game engine other games could be made too. On a side note,you know I have always wanted to see a game, that truly showed us what aga was capable of.
But an ocs/ecs shmup, hell yeah, Id play the shit out of that. I'd even be happy to contribute some ideas.
Have you and Tony talked about it? Or has Tony gone awol...lol, I hope not.
