Radian't real name is Pieter Simmons.

Despite being a fun game, SubTerra apparently had pretty disappointing sales, so he recently releasted it as freeware.

Forgive me for laboring under a misapprehension. I failed to do my homework, and assumed since it was lumped together with Richard White's games, that it was a Richard White game.

<slaps wrist>

Chromite Software used to have its own—albeit small—website at http://www.chromite.co.nz/. But it seems to be kapoot now, and a Google search done just seconds again revealed no other, newer site. Considering all the other information posted in this topic, I guess Richard White must've pulled a Jimmy Hoffa on us. Perhaps he's gone into seclusion to get away from the millions of Galactic Core fans that batter down his door in the small hours of the night demanding a sequel... Or maybe demanding a retraction... Either way, his sleep was regularly interrupted and sleep deprivation was beginning to affect the quality of his games so he's now on 2-year sabbatical to reclaim his strength, and soon his burning, tireless imagination will rekindle and set the world on fire with a revolutionary new game. :rolleyes:

Speaking as someone who played both GC and Homeland, I can say that while GC bored me immensely, Homeland made me seriously contemplate deleting Virtual PC from my computer as a prophylactic measure. GC is spectacularly not good. Homeland is spectacularly bad.

I think there is a healthy possibility that Homeland was not actually intended to be a game and was secretly developed by Dr. Kevorkian in a bad mood.

The explanation is sheer, simple inattentiveness. I assumed SubTerra got its separate forum because people actually discussed it. Part of the reason behind lumping all the Richard White games together—as far as I understand it—was because each forum (whether it be Lost Souls or Galactic Core) was merely a platform for spamming. True, there was a slight difference in flavor between the forum's spam, but it was all spam nonetheless.

Actually, the real reason was the fact that the GC forum existed and none of the others did, although some members wanted to discuss those others games once in a great while. Since I can't create new sections but I can edit the ones I mod, and since I was a mod of Galactic Core, RWG came into existence.

—Alorael, who is saddened. His momentous change went unnoticed by the one person who has a legitimate reason to care!

I feel we owe RW an apology. He did the best he could and he is my father. So please be nice. Otherwise Homeland 2 will be made, then given out disguised as free copies of A4.

He didn't? Oh good grief. :confused: Now someone's going to say, "Hey Icshi, what are you talking about? White didn't do Galactic Core, that was done by Lobardi di Pestriniero."

And then I suppose a few days from now people will point out to me that Richard White is a mere figment of my imagination, and all references to him on these bulletin boards will—a la Philip K. Dick—suddenly disappear and be replaced with someone else's name.

The disintigration of my own personal reality has begun and I am flung screaming into a never-ending existential nightmare... :eek: :eek: :eek:

I think their support address is mail@chromite.co.nz. But it's probably useless since it appears that Chromite has died.

Maybe RW is now living in a cardboard box in some alleyway. And still programming.

IDEA! Since this forum doesn't seem to get much traffic at all in the way of RWG discussion, let's turn it into a new pseudo-Misc. What say?

That idea has been proposed before with no success. Occasional spam that gets immediately locked is easier on the disk space than deliberate, constant spam.

I just got to thinking. "nz" in an internet address indicates "New Zealand," right? So maybe there's a very simple explanation for Richard White's disappearance. Perhaps in order to capitalize on the post-Lord of the Rings tourist boom in New Zealand, he's taken up a more profitable line of business, such as standing on the street corners in Christchurch selling t-shirts that say "I've Been To Middle Earth. How About You?" :P
