Talon

Does anybody know what ever became of Scott Richards, creator of Talon? He just seemed to vanish around 2012.

Well, the game's home website seems to have an active forum on which Scott appears to post on still. A quick poking around suggests he's still tweaking Talon from time to time.

Link to said forum

Don't know much about what he's up to beyond that.

As did I, until I uncovered these forums (which in all honesty, seem to be only mostly dead).  ;)

I still have a copy of the game, but haven't played it in years. It was okay fun for a couple of rounds, but then it admittedly got old. It really needed a bit more variation to it.

...wonder if ol' Scott ever took up a suggestion I recall giving him, back when he first released the game, and made an outdoors level where the player was forced to stay close to the ground and have to dodge the terrain features...
