Hi all,

I'm teaching Squeak to my students as a part to Introduction to 
Informatics (not to computer sciences[1]) to my students. I want to make 
a collective project with them. The idea is to create a microcommunity 
of problem solvers using computer artefacts (specially Squeak), so I 
want that the project to be made involves in someway the idea of solving 
a project collectively. The idea is also that the problem to solve be a 
collective/collaborative game, so I'm thinking about creating a lemmings 
clone in Squeak.

I'm a newbie on Squeak, but I want to learn with my students, so my 
questions are:

 * ¿What is necessary to make this game?
 * If I want to make a collective project solving, ¿what tools could be 
learned also (control version systems like monticello) and wich 
infrastructures can be used for that?
 * From the experience using the Drawing tool and from the one in the 
Car that doesn't get out of the way, I was thinking that may be the 
scenary for this game could be some kind of drawing and that pinguins 
will follow some kind of preexisting path on the scenary, but one of 
them can erase part of the drawing, if the proper task is gave to it 
(erasing the floor would be like digging).

Any other help on this problem wold be nice.
