Yes, I have gotten in touch with Atlas, and will be giving him a call on Sunday afternoon to discuss how this transition will happen.
If anyone else is interested in helping, please PM me, and I shall try to get back to you soon. If you are unable to PM, l have an alert set on responses to this thread, so if you have questions, I will try to answer them here.
Personally, it's my own hope in this that I will be able to write a port of Genetica for other platforms. I currently use Genetica inside of a VM on Linux (I had zero luck getting it to work with wine), and I would love to be able to run it natively.
I've never taken over a project from anyone else before, so I'm a little nervous about the possibility that I may be biting off more than I can chew, but I'm also extremely excited about the possibilties.
