Space Ruckus? What?

Much time has passed since last we saw an update to the design of Space Ruckus: The Official Site. Earth presidents have been elected and re-elected, entire planets have come and gone, and Hostess stopped making Twinkies. In actuality, it was last revised on February 22nd, 2009 with some very minor changes to the design originally developed in July of 2008. I still think that the CSS, HTML and PHP code are robust enough for another go, so things have only slightly been reworked under the hood. The most obvious changes come in the form of a revised logo, background art by Micheal Cross (previously used with permission for The Grig Post), and an additional bar that includes Google Search as well as a number of links to social media networks in which the Space Ruckus project has touched base with. This update also makes a few corrections to the various media pages. Nothing spectacular. Just a few dead link fixes and updated embed code for YouTube videos. As you may have noticed, the forum is still in need of a face lift. That update will come at a later time.


Space Ruckus: The Official Site v2.5

For you history buffs out there (or readers with far too much time on their hands), the original 1.0 and 2.0 web sites have been archived at http://site1.spaceruckus.com (Pre-2008) and http://site2.spaceruckus.com (Post-2008) respectively.


Space Ruckus: The Official Site v2.1

It must be noted that this is not necessarily a sign of things to come. Development of the game has been at a standstill for a number of years now, but beginning in 2011, I made public a number of media assets that began to shed light on the project. If and when time permits, I personally intend to write a full length article about the game's development, with all the juicy bits left intact.

In truth, I made this revision, more or less, because I wanted an updated template to use for a few other web sites that I intend to build. One of them is already under construction.
