Copied from Jeff Minters' Twitter.  I hope the latter means he has finished whatever game he was working on and is ready for tea now.

@Yak - Can you give us any insights? Or must we be content to read the Twitter tea leaves?

Yak was just on here 30 minutes ago in the Jag forums.  I'd love to hear what he has to say...

It's always interesting to see or hear about "behind the scenes" elements of game development.
If you have Facebook, here is a Tempest level under construction!

Jeff Minter may use a different algorithm.

The 2nd tweet from July is linked here, for reference. Gosh, Jeff tweets A LOT.

I'd get seasick fast if I had this kind of desktop wallpaper, but I suppose that for the author of Trip-A-Tron and other assorted 'delia, it's some sort of visual ASMR.

 

Big points for the Quake icon, that's one thing our desktops do have in common :)

This is a very famous teapot in 3D circles called the "Utah" teapot. I have one of these at home too. 🙂

So he is doing something 3D on the VCS.  OOH, can't wait to see what he's got brewing! (Pun intended. 😁)
