It's like a navigational overlay program for Asteroids™

"Plus, if I keep doing this then I’m going to end up known as “the checkbox guy.” That’s not exactly marketable but I guess it could be worse"

Funnily, clavdivs, I almost posted a different developer's effort to build an Asteroids game engine instead of this.

I'm terrified watching those. And I feel twitchy.

This is ace, but I note that no-one has yet used it as a display mode for Doom.

I hope this will be rectified shortly.
