I'm open to some retro game design, and being freelance does offer some freedom in that direction but I also need to pay the bills, so I'm unable to take any lengthy down time creating something that is new and hoping that it pays out in the long term. Which is a shame because ideas are not in short supply :)

And my Powerball ticket never came up.....

If Völgarr taught me anything, it's that there should be a job opening somewhere for converting LIVE Arcade games to Dreamcast. Like a paid outsourced service for Indie developers or something. I wonder if that would be feasable as a paid job...

Nice the screenshots do look impressive and like with any other cancelled dreamcast game it leaves me wondering , I see no reason why sega had to cancel it for more sports/action games for the 99 western launch they could have just pushed it back into 2000 smh

I forget the reason, I was more involved in the art side of things. You get used to getting cancelled. I've been working in game graphics for 30 years now. Most of the stuff I've worked on has never seen the light of day. Would have been a nice title, in my rather biased opinion. Traveller had a pretty good following.

Quick link to an MP4 file that shows a fly-through of a ship interior. Hope you don't get sea sick...

That looks great! Some really nice detail in everything. Now I really want to play it! Can you finish it up and release it? ;)
