Shortly after release, it was updated to version 1.0.1 and 1.0.2. to fix a few bugs. Go grab it, before it goes away.
Nathan Lamont's exciting space combat game is coming once again to Macintosh, this time from Ambrosia. Though Ares was once published by Changeling, Nathan brought the title to us so that we could give it a fantastic rerelease.
We're investigating the possibility of making minor improvements to the game before we ship it. One thing is for certain - improvements or none - Ares is finally going to get the exposure and avilability it deserves.
Check out some pics of Ares in this issue's Sneak Snapz column.
If you're reading carefully, you'll note that Cythera has been revved to version 1.0.2, which means that it shipped with a bug. Oops. Looks like Jason will be chowing down next year.
Because of the bugs in Cythera, the first course of the meal will be an anitpasto dish of some sort - perhaps a salad of crickets and mealworms. Jason said that if other products ship with bugs, they'll count as separate courses in the bug munching meal.
Pop-Pop is still in the hands of Andrew Campbell, as Andrew continues to add art and special moves. And, of course, it will be tested and hopefully be bug-free at release, along with Ares and Ferazel's Wand. We can't have Jason eating bug entrees...
Deimos Rising is still carefully guarded by Australian Funnel Web spiders, as David Wareing hammers his fingers to worn out stubs on his trusty keyboard. Of course, once he's done with that, we'll all wear out our fingers as well, playing the game. Funny how things happen like that.
...and more? That's right... there's stuff that we could tell you, but we'd have to kill you afterwards. But all will be revealed faster than you can say "networkable" in due time.
