The aim of the project is to make computer games to show off the Gambas language, with the eventual hope of inclusion in the Humble Indie Bundle for maximum attention. It is to feature a little boy building a makeshift air cannon from spare parts only to terrorize his older sister, and potentially the whole neighbourhood, while evading the wrath of his father. The majority of the game's multimedia are derived from vector graphics taken from OpenClipart and sound effects taken from SoundBible.
