Purveyor of video game psychedelia, Jeff Minter
, has his follow-up to Space Giraffe
– a retooling of Llamasoft classic, Gridrunner++
(shown) – "nearly finished," according to an interview with Eurogamer
. The only problem: he hasn't heard from Microsoft for months.
"We sent it off to [Microsoft] months ago, but they've just not said anything – we're just waiting for them," Minter said. "Basically I'm going to carry on with the PC version of it if I don't hear from them soon, because they're just sitting on the demo we sent them three or four months ago. We haven't heard a thing."
We're eager to give Minter's latest a shot, but Microsoft may not be rushing to make that happen given the sales performance
and scattershot review scores
of Space Giraffe
