Just a quick heads up that I am still alive and will be posting more stuff to the blog at some point. I’m just taking a short break until the beginning of September.

I’d not heard that. They might have to move the point where the player exits hyperspace to be a little further away then. :)
I was playing through my game the other day, just looking at it to see what I can improve, and it occurred to me that the whole experience is over rather too quickly.
I originally intended UTS-187 to be around 4-5 levels long (the final figure being 4), in fact all of the Project Prototype games were going to be about that length, but upon reflection I find that the game really doesn’t give you enough time to get to know it before it’s over. So I’ve decided that I’m going to up the length of the new games to 5-10 levels. I may even add a few levels to UTS-187 as well.
The Project Prototype games will still be free, and I’m working on getting the first one published on Desura.
