Hi Tharindu.  Hopefully Alexei will respond (since he thought of this 
project), but I expect you will need familiarity with graphics systems 
more than gaming.  The project is to enhance Harmony to work with the 
existing game code rather than change the game itself.

I think it would be a good opportunity to see how existing games are 
written and the operations that are used in the runtime.  That will be a 
basis for you to use the same operations for your own gaming ideas.
