    Operation Lambda
    ================

    Announcing Operation Lambda: a remake of the [classic game][1] by
    [Bret Victor][2]. Make your way through a distressed spaceship, rescuing
    hostages and deflecting lasers in 100 levels!

    The remake implements the original (IIgs only) game entirely in Ruby, so
    anyone can play! It also adds a level editor, swappable tile-sets, and
    other
    niceties.

    Where do I get it?
    ------------------

    Operation Lambda is hosted on in my [BitBucket repository][3]. It is
    available
    as a Windows [exe][4] and an OS X [app][5] as well!

    [3]: http://bitbucket.org/philomory/operationlambda/
    [4]:
    http://bitbucket.org/philomory/operationlambda/downloads/OperationLambda-win32.zip
    [5]:
    http://bitbucket.org/philomory/operationlambda/downloads/OperationLambda-macosx.dmg


    What do I need?
    ---------------

    If you download the pre-packaged application, you don't need anything
    other
    than what's in the zip/dmg. If you're running it from source, you'll
    need

    * [Ruby](http://ruby-lang.org)
    * [Gosu](http://libgosu.org/)
    * [TexPlay](http://code.google.com/p/texplay)


    Anything I should know?
    -----------------------

    Operation Lambda is alpha-quality software! That means it'll probably
    crash
    sometimes, or just not do what you'd expect. Please, by all means, let
    me
    know if you encounter any problems.

    Some machines have exhibited very poor performance, while others do
    fine. I
    don't know why yet! But, I'm investigating.

    You can see the README and the in-game help for full details.


    Who's responsible for this?
    ---------------------------

    data,
