Return of Dr. Destructo started out in 2011 as a simple pet project, something I can finally finish, unlike a lot of previous attempts to create a complete game outside of my day work.
It took three years of programming, searching for the right artist, setting up build environments, fixing bugs and adding features to Allegro (my game library of choice), and now finally - it's here. It's complete.
Go ahead, and download yourself a copy. The game is free and runs on Windows, Linux and MacOS X.
I'll make the source code available a little later on, after I solve a few problems with it (namely, that it depends on a custom patch for Allegro game programming library, and hard-codes URL for bug-reporting).
