Starquake Update: 20/03/2013: Where have you been?

Wow, nearly three months since my last update, I bet most of you thought that this remake had gone the way of too many before it, namely on the scrapheap, never to be seen again! Well, fear not, I’m glad to say that the remake is far from dead. So you might ask, why the [...]
