I've glanced over your headers, and you certainly have done a lot of work. Are you planning to add changes to the original gameplay or to just reimplement it for different platforms?

Hi there, looks good - just like the original thing!

Don't mind my asking, since I haven't read much about your project. Why did you guys create this open-source version of C3 in the first place? What's the diff from the original, I'm wondering? Thanks.

So is this the same as the original? Or better? Or an attempt to make it like the original?

What is the result?
posted 03-26-14 23:07 ET (US)     17 / 26  
Yeah after restoring the original game there are plans to expand it - such as adding more resources (water + flour = bread). If you follow the links there are more details and discussion.

Is this game actually in active development? It would also be nice if the game was available on other sources than just through Github and also gave an indication as to whether the game is actually fully completed.

It's an interesting project, but the OP hasn't posted in a while and I fear the project is abandoned.

Check the links above, there was an update after your post.
