It’s been a long time, hasn’t it?
Just so you know, I’m not dead yet and neither is GearHead, though neither one of us are quite as active as we used to be. This past while I’ve been busy with graduate studies and, to be honest, I feel a bit guilty that I’m not working on my thesis right now.
A few days ago I sat down to finally get GearHead: Arena working on my current laptop. I also set up a new repository for it on GitHub. Please note that this doesn’t mean that the game is back in development, per se, though I couldn’t resist diving back into the code to update some things and fix some problems. I just want to make sure it remains available and working on modern computers.
My current plan is to play through GearHead1 and GearHead2 in preparation for working on GearHead3. But don’t get yer hopes up about that game until I have something playable to show.
I’ll be posting observations about my GH1 playthrough as they occur to me. Wish me luck.
