Got something against Tetris derivatives?

Got any ideas? This, I couldn't agree more, and I would like to get into
such a game project, even more so if I could make it a platform to test
XPLC with (the concept would need to be extensible, like Doom and Quake

I also think that we shouldn't target only Linux, but try to get also
the other Unixes (of course), BeOS, MacOS and the Windows. Then, such
innovative games could be heard about and people would see them.

Hmm, did that make any sense? :-)

Getting to that critical mass is pretty though. I'm trying to recruit
developers to take over Quadra in some time, and it's Hard.
