I guess I first mentioned this C64 game project in 2005 - it's been in limbo on and off ever since, but now I dare to say it's actually progressing again.
For easy reference, you can think of it as Metal Warrior 5 (I guess that's the only genre I know how to do) - though the world & characters will be completely different.
It's being developed in a Google Code SVN repo, http://hessian.googlecode.com
, so all progress is sort of public.
Right now I'm at the point of having added somewhat solid player moving/jumping physics, no animation yet. I'm purposefully reusing as little code as possible from earlier games in hope of writing better/faster code
