Hello everyone, thank you for the messages and emails.

No, this project is not dead, neither am I.

I’m just super, super busy and when I do have some free time I’m usually spending it on anything but on my PC. Also, I haven’t had a chance to touch my PC, because my office is full of boxes and other junk as we are in the final days of moving house.

You have to understand I work nights and look after my son during the day. I’m not about to prioritise the project over my real life, it can wait.

The last work I did on my PC was installing a new HD and upgrading to Windows 10, which was the worst upgrade I’ve ever done. Windows 10 has been such a pain in the arse it’s not funny. Not only was there a lot of software and drivers I’ve had issues with, I’ve also had issues with hardware not being compatible. It’s been a nightmare. I’m seriously considering downgrading once the move is done, so I can actually get some work done when I get a chance. I have done some work on the project since the last post, but nothing worth sharing right now.

At some point my son will have a day or two in childcare and when that happens I’ll have some real free time to devote to the project. It’s just not something I can or want to throw little 30 minutes sessions at.

My son is yelling at me and pulling at my shirt as I type this so I’ll wrap this up. Thanks again for continuing to follow the project and thanks to all new visitors!

Chat soon!

  1. Great to hear you and your son are doing well.
    The minor work on the project is nothing compared with the sight of this sign of life, lol.

    Good you are doing well mate.

  2. Happy your still around be too be honest there was no doubt, kids and life in general always should come first. I won’t claim to speak for anyone but myself when I say take the man, be with your son focus on now, and when the time comes you’ll work on the project with vigor, vision, and passion and I don’t think it would be too controversial to say the people who have been watching this for years are more than okay with it taking time and being done right, than to see tresspasser repeat history.

  3. Hi!

    Glad to hear you still haven’t gave up on the project.
    Familiy comes first, and it’s no good forcing yourself to do something you don’t like, or lack the time to do…
    Any chance you may open source the work so that others can fork or contribute?


  4. Absolutely no rush. Take your time and we will be patiently waiting. Looks awesome so far! 🙂

  5. thank you for the update, much appreciated

  6. Hey, just an old fan back from Trescom forums and all. I’ve been following your project since the beginning. I just wanted to ask you do you think there’s any chance that you might release a version of what you have so far? or maybe your version of the original Trespasser demo? Just wondering. It feels sad and lonely here without your posts and I don’t mean only updates from your project, I mean any updates, interesting info, gadgets and such. Anyway, keep it up! I hope you don’t abandon this project forever.

  7. Happy new year! I hope we hear something from you soon!

    • Hi, thanks for the comment 😉 I’m hoping to replace my CPU and Motherboard over the next couple of months, because right now my PC is super unstable and crashes frequently when doing anything like editing or gaming. Some overheating CPU issues a while back make me think it’s on its way out, and these days it’s quite outdated, so that will be very nice get fixed. The only thing Trespasser related I’ve done recently is 3D print a model of the Trespasser island, which I’ll be sure to post some photos of in my next post. Thanks for sticking around!

  8. Bruh, I’m gonna need to see a post with pictures of the 3D printed Trespasser Island because that sounds legit AF. I’ve been following this site for what, I don’t know, at least 5-6 years now. Hook some of the og fans up, the ones who were watching from the beginning! I miss the days when once or twice a week or check my email and see that there was a new post from here haha.

    • Just drop a hi guys post whenever possible… still hoping this will see daylight! Best of luck!

  9. yes still following, any pics appreciated

  10. still standing in the shadows waiting for CE5.6 almost here

  11. I just found out about this project. If you pull this off, you will be my hero. Thanks for your hard work.This is my favorite game of all time.

  12. cannot wait for this, and at the same time i dont want it rushed or stressed over, but when this comes out it will be a truly glorious day

  14. I hope all is well! I check in on this project every so often to see if there are updates. I know life changes and priorities shift, it happens to everyone. I’d like to know though, is this still happening?

    I brought this project to the attention of its creator Seamus Blackley on Twitter and he was flattered and responded quite positively.

    Trespasser was a game he was forced to release early. He felt massive disappointment in himself and guilt for those looking forward to the game. If you were to finish it for him – remake it in all it’s polished glory as the game it could have once been – he’d probably want to meet you to shake your hand.

    I look forward to hearing more and seeing how this pans out! I’m a sucker for a good story and to see this game finished and shown to its original creator? Now that’s a story worth telling.

  15. Bro its been years, are you dead? if not send us those pics of the trespasser island you 3d printed legit two years ago and i would love that stl to print for myself too

    • Totally not dead, just really bloody busy! 2 jobs, a toddler and life all fighting for attention. BUT.. I’ve been working on a post for quite a few months now, but I get busy and then things change and improve and I think maybe I’ll hold off to show something better.. don’t worry, some really cool news coming and I’ll be sure to print another model of the island, one in higher detail and post some pics. Thanks for still visiting the page!

      • Great thanks

      • Of course people still come here. In fact I am playing Trespasser right now for the first time. It’s fun but I’d really like to see all your hard work in a playable game.

        Have you thought about creating a Patreon page for some extra income? I’d pay a bit.

      • Oh, good 🙂 i never gave up hoping that this will make me feel 12 years old again 😀

      • great thanks

      • great thank you for the update
