The vaguely observant of you might have noticed the countdown timer on top of every page on the main MINERVA site. The slightly more observant will have noticed the timer reached zero, and things changed. The particularly observant among you will have realised that yes, it's April 1st - and those with eyes of hawks will have realised that the joke pages are randomly selected from a pool of five. (Direct, non-randomised links: 1, 2, 3 and 4. Page five is ... low probability. Very much so...)
While not trolling the gaming public (give someone a timer and they'll immediately believe it's for something amazing, even if it's counting down to this notorious date) - I've been doing some slightly more useful things. One is a fancy new repackaged version of Someplace Else, with full Steam compatibility, detail textures (for subtly improved visuals), a nice new splash-screen, and (best of all) a lovely little 16x16 icon for the Steam games list.
On the MINERVA front, there's a nice Metastasis 2 review at Press Start Online - best of all, it contains constructive criticism so I have an even better idea of what to concentrate on in future... ;-)
Metastasis 2 was my third released map for the Half-Life series. I hope I'm improving.
