I’m moving this back to planned. I want to do it, but clearly, my original promise fell through.

Greetings all! Good to see continuing activity here!
I was thinking perhaps we should try to tackle this game project as a community. We could use similar base code, which we post to the forums, and then ask questions if we run into problems. It would give us a chance to learn from working and have the added benefit of creating a number of variations on a theme, provided we use different textures, and different behaviors (to a degree). I'm at a point where this would actually be pretty helpful for my development as well.
So what I suggest, keeping it simple, is a 'Breakout' type clone. My former room mate, and a good friend wrote something very similar for one of his various programming classes, and it can make for a fun 'little' game.
I'm going over to RB's site to start a forum thread under "Forum->Other->Community Projects and encourage everyone to drop by and check in there if you're interested. I'll also post some basic game guidelines, the beginning game code, and open the discussion to suggestions. See you there!
