Torr Samaho recently became Skulltag's first new programmer since the unfortunate departure of Carnevil, Skulltag's creator and previously single lead coder. From Skulltag's web site:
Everybody give a warm welcome to our first new Skulltag code monkey: Torr Samaho! Torr is currently studying his PHD in mathematics in Germany. Please refrain from harassing the poor guy for bug fixes or new feature requests for quite some time though as he'll definitely need some time to familiarize himself with the source.
The web site also states that other new coders will join the Skulltag project eventually, as well. Skulltag seems to have a future once again.
