This is still on my radar. Anyone know when/if we can buy this?

Hmm.. cobwebs and echoes. Not a good sign.

Statements from designer Ken Burnside on his company's forum:

Jul 04, 2006
Sadly, HT has slipped off the schedule and back to the designer and developer for more work.

We're not abandoning it, but I will be updating the web site to say "In Development, Check Back Regularly..." for updates.

Mar 11, 2006
We have 3/4 of 3 different games that don't /quite/ work together yet, and I intend to chase down the developer and Phil and see if we can hammer some details out.

And this thread has some details of what's in the current draft:

Frankly I'd buy it just to have the delta-V map as a tool for RPGs. But the answer to "When?" seems to be "God only knows."

Yearly check-in

Any more news yet? Must be fuel tank sensors causing the delay.

Really like the look of this. Can't wait for it to be completed.

Update from the horse's mouth:

High Trader has finally emerged from dormancy and is undergoing active playtesting. It has undergone substantial restructuring since the post linked above, making it (in my opinion, as the developer) a much more playable and fun game.

Ad Astra Games actively solicits playtesters on an honorarium basis. Once this is done, the playtest forum here will be opened to you to look at the game's current state and comment. It's fully playable with your friends at the present time, you'll just have to print out all the bits yourself. There's even a play-by-post playtest ongoing right now, which you can watch and kibitz over, and the possibility of a second one if we get critical mass for it.

It's still too early for us to be able to commit to an actual release date for the commercial version; the new changes improve it greatly, but will require significant testing.
