Jeff Minter, cuddler of sheep
and designer of psychedelic shooters, has updated his Stinkygoat
blog with a mention of his latest endeavor: Gridrunner++
for Xbox Live Arcade
. The original scrolling shooter, which requires you to survive numerous waves of enemies in increasingly disorienting levels, will have its graphics and controls overhauled to better suit the Xbox 360.
Minter hopes it'll make for a "more involved game" and is first focusing on "getting all the gameplay working first." That's just as well, given the polar reactions his Space Giraffe
galloped and/or flew into.
