Hello everyone, I’ve been lurking on the board for a couple of months and finally started working on a version of Omega Race for Arduboy named Omega Chase. I should have it finished in a couple of weeks. I still need to finish the command ships and death ships that pursue and fire back as well as add levels. Here’s what I’ve got so far. I’ll add it to Github and share it here when it’s completed.
The titlescreen also says Chace, so I’m wondering if it’s an intentional mispelling, as people sometimes do for reasons like copyright, searchability, or just to be ‘edgy’/‘cool’/whatever-the-kids-say-these-days.
Actually, it’s not Old English… (Useless trivia inbound.)
The word chase is actually from Old French ‘chacer’, imported via Anglo-Norman. It was in Middle English as ‘chacen’, but too modern an import for Old English. The Old English equivalent is ‘oht’.
If you didn’t get the reference then I’ll assume that most others won’t as well. It only took 5 minutes to change it. It got me thinking about a restaurant near me that is named “Korner Kitchen” and that misspelling always bothers me LOL.
