Oh man! I am so sick to hear that you lost all of your work. T.T
So sorry man. :/
The 8-bit Family would also be a good choice I think, given its BASIC languages are very mature and you can get some really nice graphics out of it. I have been working on 7800 as well to see if I want to travel that path too. I think Trash would be great fun on either one.
I could rebuild it, probably faster than the first time... but redoing it is what makes me feel ill lolol
the 8-bit family is a pretty cute choice as well. : )
Ooooo, what are you working on for 7800?
decisions decisions. I am also going to be cautious about graphic limitations and such because there comes a point when it will become overwhelming - one person to draw everything as well as program. I need a nice middle ground that I can manage : )
