Paranoia 1.2 has been released!

What is it?

Paranoia 1.2 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?
============== and the original c code that it is based on are currently 
avaliable from:
