The more I read the more skeptical I became, but at the same time, you acknowledged all of the criticisms I was building up in my head. You have a realistic timeframe (years, but public access this year), and you acknowledge building a game, not an engine.

Your writing is clear and easy to follow, and your intelligence definitely shines through.

I never thought I'd say this, but you may actually have a shot at pulling this off. I mean the next Minecraft, Angry Birds, etc is going to come from somewhere/someone, why not you?

Keep it up! And looking forward to the next update.

Thank you! The odds really are stacked against me, but on the other hand I don't like to fight easy battles. :)

always remember, long odds = long payoff. and if you're not starving, the odds are still good.

good luck!

Thanks! I could benefit from a little starvation actually; sitting in a chair 80 hours a week is not losing me any weight.

One afternoon at Ikea and 40 bucks will buy you a nice standing desk. I know it's become a cliche, but if you really do sit 80 hours a week, it may be worth the initial inconvenience.

If you're interested I'll send you links to the components on Ikea

I own a geek desk actually (it raises to standing or sitting) , but I still spend too much time in my chair. :)

I'm not the OP, but do you mind sharing the components list?
