So its been a year since we announced we were stopping development of this project. Many of us are still around, and we still hang out in our irc server channel (#projectwish on irc.projectwish.com). The code has been downloaded many hundreds of times, and hopefully many have benefited from its release. Those of us who were involved in the project benefited greatly, and are thankful at having been able to share and grow our talents here.
For those of you who still come back and check us out, what have you been up to? Project Wish was life-changing to many of us involved, what are the things you remember or that changed your life? Let us know.
Cobra has been working on making films on his own. You can see a teaser of Stargate: The Imperative, the name of his short, here: http://www.dackard-3d.com/theimperative
. You can check out some of his work on his vimeo page (http://vimeo.com/user1101876

Njpaul has been working on an Ogre3D scene editor with a co-worker, and has made a lot of progress.
I have been working on my own game, which I mention on my blog from time to time (http://erikbriggs.me
). I am also scheduled to speak at GEEX again this year about hobbyist game development. It will be in July here in SLC, Utah. Check it out at their website: http://geexshow.com/
Others from the team have moved on from college to get jobs out in the real world, and use many of the skills they picked up here.
