Rogue is a dungeon crawling video game first developed by Michael Toy and Glenn Wichman around 1980. It is generally credited with being the first "graphical" adventure game, and was a favorite on college Unix systems in the early to mid-1980s, in part due to the procedural generation of game content.

Up Up and Away!

And now I am a Game Publisher. I have uploaded the Connect Four game over at SourceForge. I did change the name to Four Across just to not deal with any copyright issues with Hasbro. Sure there are some internal references to Connect Four (tm) in the code, but for now, I not overly worried about any legal action.

Most of the early part of the day was spent learning the Visual Studio release and deployment features. Though to be safe there is both the "Installer" version of the game as well as the "Zip of Files" version. The Installer version will check to make sure your .NET configuration is up to date, otherwise it will update your system and want to reboot. Most of you should be smart enough to figure out the zip file version should not want to trust a Microsoft Installer.

Still have at and feel free to comment. It isn't really anything exciting as a game other then being something that I created. I plan on giving the code a rest for a day or so before moving on.
