New year resolution: resume a personal project I put aside for the last 5 years, and keep at it for a while.

5/6 years ago I was pissed that no mobile game uses touch interface to detect "spells" being drawn on the screen and decided to have a go at it. I remember a game of the 90s doing that with the mouse, which was super cool at the time.

I had a working (but ugly) game, but the last 20% to publish the game was more than my motivation allowed at the time and I let it rot.

Let's see if I can get it done this time.

    The game you're thinking of is Black & White.

    Reminds me of a meetup I was at recently where one of the devs was doing a show and tell about a wand with an accelerometer in, using AI to match the shapes drawn in the air to spell shapes. He said they were making an API for it too (not just the kids' code version you see on their website).

    @Glinkis not quite. Found it, it was Arx Fatalis. And it was from 2002, not as old as I thought.
