Hard Vacuum

Came across this interesting article about an unfinished Amiga Game. The author included a link to download the graphics if anyone is interested.

The article says the graphics were created with DPaint on an A1000, but the game was designed for 386 and 486 IBM compatibles, not Amigas.

I must have missed the part where he specifically mentioned 386/486 and then I saw the reference to DPaint and A1000. it definitely looks more like an Amiga based game though.

I like what he's saying about taking an old classic and rethinking it. I agree that many games have mechanics that haven't been explored fully. And a lot of that comes with the success of a games format, if it's not broken why fix it? Certainly makes sense, but a lot of 'what if....' is shut out.

Today I see all too often (and I've been guilty of it myself many times) of having a grand sweeping game idea that you're really passionate about, but have very unrealistic expectations about how much one or two people alone can pull off. I'm kind of going through a 'classic rethink' at the moment and was quite happy to find a similar opinion out there.

Now.. time... if only I can find the 'off' button on the kids for a few hours a day. No matter what I hit on the remote they just WON'T shut down!
