Prototyping new game

So I've taken a bit of a hiatus from Daimyo, but just briefly. I'm working on the prototype to a new game that I'll reveal when it's done. I'm going back to Objective-C for iPhone work and, honestly, it's been a bit of time since I worked on anything about it. Good thing is that things are coming back a little faster than I thought it might. I need to get back to some of my reference books, though, because I want to do something that's not really "standard" now (of course). Overall, though, it's coming along nicely as a prototype. I didn't actually think I'd be able to knock this out as quickly as it's been going.
Also had fun checking out an interview with Natalia and Keith at Imangi studios. Ready Set DC did a profile on them and it was quite nice to read about some folks I've been following on Twitter because, well, they're awesome but also the kind of people I could see hanging out with on a Friday. :) The link to the article is here.
So, things are progressing well with the prototype and Daimyo is after that. I think that the weekend may see the completion of the proto, which gives me a week or so to actually knock out the product and get it in people's hands. Then it's off to make the pay version (the proto is of the lite version) and then, maybe, get it up on the App Store.
So, there ya go.
