Here is the tweet from Derek Yu showing his contribution to the game.

The draw of the game is that it will feature 50 8-bit games. It originally had a 2018 launch window, which since passed. In addition to Yu, Eirik Suhrke, Jon Perry, Ojiro Fumoto, Paul Hubans, and Tyriq Plummer are making titles for it. In addition to single-player games, there will be multiplayer ones.

Here’s the 2017 announcement trailer, which shows some of the games people will see in the finished collection.

While this is in development, Derek Yu did finish another game. Spelunky 2 came out in 2020, eventually hitting multiple platforms. Following its launch, Yu worked on updates to address issues and improve the online experience.

UFO 50 is in development for PCs. The un-updated Steam page is still live, as is the official website.
