Subject: Magnetic Billiards: Seriously Casual
Finally making some good progress. The tutorial modes (a massive PITA) are all but done. 23 out 24 lessons are working. The last one just needs the corresponding element in the main game to be finished. The whole thing still needs a bit of polish but I'm reasonably happy with it. Ste designed the lessons and I think they work well in taking you through the key concepts of the game one step at a time. The tutorial is entirely optional but judging by our experience with Naked War it's something that players do want.
I've got about 12 things left to do before I can release the alpha version on Friday. Nothing too worrying and only a couple of them are vital.
