Jeff Minter Working On New Gridrunner Title
Jeff Minter, the hippie gaming guru behind the recent Space Giraffe has revealed that his new project is a reworking of Gridrunner++ for Xbox Live.

In his latest blog posting, Minter writes:

"Work-wise, I'm now into the redesign of GR++ for XBLA. I already have it running modified for the different aspect ratio and working off the x360 pad as opposed to the mouse, and I'm changing and extending the gameplay; it'll be a much more involved game than the PC-only predecessor. I'm getting all the gameplay working first then I'll overhaul the graphics; we'll likely go for algo generated 3D shapes rather than the hand-drawn sprites of the PC original."

There you have it. For those of you who never saw it, the first Gridrunner++ was a Pocket PC-based, top-down shooter that was itself a remake of one of Minter's earliest games, Gridrunner for the Vic 20.
