Just wanted to post a survey to find out what tools GS people are using to create their masterpiece? :) This includes tools like programs, graphics tablets, and anyone that might be assisting you :)

I'm using Pixen, (just acquired Photoshop CS4), and the Wacom Intuos 3 Graphics tablet. I have no assistance, and am creating the game solo.

    Quantum, are you using the Yamaha keyboard to compose the game music yourself?

    Quantum's demo games hmmmm?? Can I take a gander? :)

    I just figured that QS can make the games then we can rip em & sell em. Apple gets 30% we get 60% you get 10%. Sounds fair to me...

    Sorry, we signed a contract that states GS can have our first-born if we spill the beans on anything that hasn't been released =p

    hrmm...taking my first more more crying...on second thought... maybe.... =)

    Actually seriously, I would share all info I could IF GS gives the ok, otherwise my lips are sealed. Sorry.
