It's been 3000 years...
I'm alive, though questioning whether to actually post anything or remain a ghost.
I'll keep it short. It should be pretty obvious I haven't worked on this game in a long, long time now.
I still think about it occasionally, and honestly I still want to go back and finish it, but I think the way I'd do it is start from the top and redo everything from scratch. Take what I learned and make a less buggy ROM.
Life has been very busy for me. My day job is demanding, and I'm publishing a book soon. So that's where most of my creative efforts have gone.
Maybe in December, I'll start up a new project and revive this hack. If I ever get seriously off the ground on a new attempt, I'll start a new thread about it. Until then, you probably won't hear from me again.
Stay cool, everyone.
