Last year, Double-Fine pulled the plug on their game Spacebase DF-9. Which was a shame, because the game they were building — The Sims vs Theme Hospital in space — was shaping up to be pretty good! Never fear: fans have stepped in and continued work on the game in Double-Fine’s absence.

The “Derelict Games restoration team” have released their first fan-made update to the cancelled project, and it looks…well, like something Double-Fine would have done if they’d kept working on Spacebase. In addition to bug fixes, there are new objects for the station, new events, new jobs for your spacefolk and even the ability to form defenders into squads and order them around together, something sorely missing from the original release.

You can read up on the full list of changes here, and if you’ve got Spacebase you can download the update here.
