A site for testing the new tools I'm building, and a little talk about what I'm learning on the way.
VGA Planets "Nu" - The official VGA Planets remake
Monday, May 31, 2010
For those of you who know me well, you'll know I've always had a soft spot for the science fiction video game VGA Planets. In fact, I've been a player for nearly 20 years and so has my Dad. As a software developer I've often thought about making a new version of the game as the game gets older and older and the technology more outdated.
A few weeks ago I contacted Tim Wisseman the original creator of the game and asked him what he thought about a web-based remake. He thought it was a great idea and has pledged his full support. So, we have launched a fundraiser in the hopes of raising enough money to get us started on the project. The fundraiser is taking place at Kickstarter and we would love your support!
