Hi Toms,

thank you for thinking of gnome games. In general, we don't want to take
on games in python for maintainability reasons. We're currently looking
to port all games to Vala to have the benefits of a modern language and
still use all the up-to-date C bindings of the Gnome/Gtk-stack. Still,
this type of game, in principle, could fit into our portfolio and I like
it very much.

We are currently in the process of redesigning and rethinking our core
portfolio. I think we could design this game to fit with a redesign of
nibbles, once we get there.

In the meantime, I would love for you to get in touch with packagers of
the major distributions (I am thinking of Ubuntu and Fedora here) and
maybe get this game in the main package index there. That would be

have a different oppinion)


I agree with Mario -- I think it'd be best if we stick only to Vala
games for maintainability, and it stylistically doesn't fit in very well
with the other GNOME games. I don't think we have the manpower right now
to see it through to inclusion.

On the other hand, this type of gameplay is right up our alley, and I
agree there is a place in GNOME games for arcade-style games. (We don't
want to get rid of Nibbles, for instance, which is woefully in need of
such an update.)
