A Plea to Developers & Publishers.
Just a quick message to all you developers and publishers out there, due to the fact that i've been away for a while I have somewhat fallen behind on the development of a number of titles, so, if your game isn't listed or has no details in the list in the above article please email with the current status of the title, even if it has been cancelled - just so I know. Also, please feel free to email with any updates on your games even if they are mentioned. Thankyou.

Wipeout Demo
I've finally managed to get my hands on the demo of this game (haven't got around to buying it yet, mind) and thought i'd give a small insight into how fast it is. On my A4000 (which has a 604e 180mz with Cybervision PPC) the game plays flawlessly in 640x480 with everything turned on to full, its even playable in 800x600 and, if you reduce the distance drawing to its lowest you can play it in 1024x768, quite impressive i'm sure you'll agree. Full review coming soon....probably ;).

- RETRACTION -
Yesterday, an article was published on these pages with reference to Alive Mediasoft gaining the publishing rights to Exodus - The Last War. It has now come to my attention that this wasn't the case, and no such rights have yet to be gained. Apologies go out to both Alive and the programmers of Exodus..

Simon the Sourcerer 2 Coming to the Amiga at Last...
News has just reached me that we are going to at last seen Simon the Sourcerer on the Amiga from Epic Marketing. This is a game that has had many rumours written about it in the past, some that claimed that it was finished and was released in small quantities while others say it had never been started. This news certainly doesn't put these rumours to bed completly, however, it is very good news indeed.
