What the f...?BrutSkvorky ("Brutal go-moku" ;-)) is an innovative variant of "go-moku" (tic-tac-toe) game. The author of the original idea is Miroslav Sommer (Aim/Mlat) who was playing classical go-moku game on squared paper with his classmate Roman Nepšinský (Mem/Mlat) and had thought up more interesting game rules.

ImplementationWe wrote the very first computer implementation in 2002. But afterward we had lost our initial enthusiasm so the work was suspended until half of 2004 when we contacted graphic artist Jiří Zima who had made all required graphics (in-game, animations, menu, ...) so our opuscule was finally done ;-).
