Childish Cannoneer is the first venture of the "Indie Games" project hosted by White Island Software at the Gambas Forum, and participated in by Piga Software through Graham L. Wilson. 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. Contributions to this project, or the creation of other entities for the Indie Games project, are more then welcome.
