Well - the deadline has come and gone!
I'm eager to see what games people came up with.

My own initial plans were to create a clone of the game Tempest. Unfortunately, I didn't have time to finish it.

With only about two days left until the deadline, I decided to take an existing game of mine (in X-Window) and port it to SDL.

It weighs in at about 600K. Not bad!
