I've entered Battlement into the Independent Games Festival competition. I'll find out in early January how much the judges like it. The only major change this week was that the instructions are now in the form of a diagram so they're easier to understand.

This week I demoed Battlement at a game development meetup and had 8 players playing in a single session together and they appeared to enjoy themselves. The only issues were that it's difficult to know which fox is yours when so many are on the screen without labels and it's difficult to know which cursor is yours even with labels. Having 8 players share one laptop screen didn't help. There were no crashes or other unintended behaviors, however, that I could tell.

I started rewriting Battlement in Rust in early February. This should only take a few weeks ...right?
