Not one to shirk from pointless tasks, I have just about finished porting my C# Hobbit to Mac OSX (Swift / Cocoa). I hadn't ever written any native Mac or iOS stuff, and I figured I probably ought to learn (Apple's new language) Swift. On the windows version, I completed developing the game, but I didn't bother implementing load/save, and there were some parser/engine limitations that impacted the authenticity (I hadn't fully implemented "AnimTalk", which allow you to ask other characters to do essentially anything on your behalf).

This one ended up being pretty much a re-write to allow the parser to properly shift context between player and characters (and in fact there is basically no technical distinction between them).

I modified the C# version to export all its basic game data as XML into the Mac version, as I think re-creating the objects, locations, behaviours, timers, exits, statuses, rules, etc, would have driven me (more) insane. A couple of hundred lines of C# code certainly beat hand-cranking several thousand lines of XML or Swift...

10 hours on iDraw (cheap, but really good vector imaging software) to create a ZX Spectrum and game cassette for the title screen.

A bit more tidying and some play-testing, and I can file this one in the hard-drive of stuff I don't look at again.

I may, however, try and use the skills-learned to actually create something useful this time... Maybe.
