Not actually an April Fool's joke, the game is now finally published!
After months in development, the project is finally wrapped and available to the masses. I've learned a lot during this project, both about programming and about working in a team. It has really showed me what I'm capable of, and to be completely honest I'm actually surprised at my own ability to program at this point.
I must say the beginning of the project was the most enjoyable part, which was when I got to program the gameplay and A.I.. I wasn't actually sure I was good enough to develop something like this, but was pleasantly surprised when the result ended up being as functional as this.
Going forward, I'll be adding to game to my portfolio and keep working on the final year project.
