Board!
  12th March, 2019
Early work on the Board Game functionality.
I've started work on a universal board-drawing function that should hopefully allow me to add a number of different board games into Shoebox.

-=-=-

The complexities are numerous, including figuring out quick and easy ways to zoom in and out of the board, and trying to decide on ways that I can ensure all games end up looking as nice as they can whilst all using the same universal DrawBoard() function.

Tricky!

And top of the list is the realisation that I initially removed multi-touch from the engine because "I wouldn't need it"..
D'oh!



Lots of work to be done to get this all up and running, so it'll probably take a number of days before I attempt a proper release. Apologies for that, but it should be worth it for all the Shoebox opportunities that it opens up.
