I will begin with the "usual stuff", hello world, installing a decent physics engine,... and then I'll try to make something mecc-like (most likely a cube w jetpack :D ) that should take me most of the day.
Would you be so kind to make something logo-like in the meantime?

I also made a "development blog" on facebook, where I will post almost everything concerning the development of Giants 2.
link: http://www.facebook.com/pages/Giants-2- ... 5791169413

And if anybody knows someone with 3d modelling or animating skills, please ask them if they are interested in giving up their social live for a good cause.

i have complete backups of giants sites, (except loop_goose skies, i was on half of backupping when geo cities died)
i have giants pc, giants mac and giants ps2 ISO's. lots of art, software related to giants/used to open giants stuff. the giants soundtrack, ALOT of patches(prob not all, accusnoetn prob has the ones when i wasn't arround)
and some junk(PSP giants theme, Extracted giants install files)
and prob some stuff i don't know/remember

At the moment I'm interested in any concept art or notes taken during development (and the source code of course)

Almost eleven years have gone by withought a single ounce of planetmoon's recourses going to create a seqel. Underselling and unpopularity, aswell as giant's publisher Interplay[wich is now long gone] Being dirt cheap and pennieless, have all contributed to a heirless Giants Citezen Kabuto. *Sheds a tear* :cry:

A sequel would indeed be fun, too bad Planet Moon is too busy making dumb Wii games. I think GCK 2 deserves better coders than me :)

Any way, I'm working on it, although I will be busy some days making a snake-game in VB.NET :)
