I'm finished! Came out nicely, though as usual it might turn out to be way harder than I think... You can find a Windows build here:

Linux/Mac and more media stuff to come after I get some sleep. Lots of cool mechanics in here, really happy with how the design came together!

Looking forward to playing everyone else's now too :)

Some people are reporting display issues when the game first boots. I'm away from home today but will sort this tomorrow. For now simply restarting the game should fix it.

Yes. Just quit out and restart. Fixes it no problem for me.

Just made a little update to add a score system to the game. Fairly simple one, might change it later. Also tweaked some text and UI and fixed a minor bug that someone reported. Still just Windows for now:

(though technically you can download the Linux or OSX T-Engine and copy in the games/module/dataqueen folder)

Some really clever ideas here. I like it.  8)

Agreed. Fun times. Nice mix of abstract and RPG type upgrades.

It burns my brain, as did Mosaic.

Not far, just pretty far into level 2. I have games to review!

Similar progress here. So far I haven't managed to link all the pink bits on level 2. Tough game! But in a good way. Really taxes the brain in a chess sort of way (I've been informed that I'm the world's worst chess player) but doesn't get frustrating - not an easy feat balancing those elements.

Haha, he's probably the third hardest boss in the game :) What did you use to beat it?

Yes, that's another favourite. So much thought goes in to manoeuvring into the necessary positions to use the desired abilities (and trying to bait enemies into position as well), it's very well done. I don't know how you came up with the ability wheel but it's inspired.
