I agree.  And IMHO it would be good to start a second mailing list for
discussion of a simple game.  A lot of us API developers might be
willing to handle particular questions, but would be turned off
very quickly if this list started being dominated by discussions
of whether an orc or a goblin should be placed near the door
on level 2...

To those who want to see how to start writing a game, I suggest
you look at other existing games, and making changes to them,
before writing your own.  Just as with foreign languages,
programming games is best learned IMHO with a 90/10 mix of
reading other people's code and writing your own.
