I'm making this thread so everyone can share their progress, get feedback and show what they are up to.
This is what I have so have (spent the last few hours working on the engine to render bitmaps):
The name for my game idea (I'm pretty sure I'm going to do this one) is Mummer's Cartography. Not entirely happy with the name, but it will do for now! :D
Can't wait to see what you guys are up to.
