Paranoia 1.3 has been released!
What is it? ========
Paranoia 1.3 is a port to Python from C of the old "paranoia" console game that used to be distributed with the bsd-games package, but has long since been removed. I ported this from C to Python as an exercise in learning Python and because I was suffering a serious bout of boredom and nostalgia.
Paranoia is based on the role playing game, by the same name, that was very popular amoung a certain set during the 1980's and is making a resurgance today.
Note that this release is as identical to the oringal game as I could make it within reason. I'm not a C coder, so I may have missed some functionality, but I don't think so. If you notice any errors or have any suggestions on cleaning up the Python code, please feel free to contact me.
Where can I get it? ==============
paranoia.py and the original c code that it is based on are currently avaliable from: http://homepage.mac.com/spkane/python/
