Ok, so Jaguar is now but a memory, and the storied videogame powerhouse is
now a software division of Hasbro following the sale of Atari from JTS in 1998.
This fact does not seem to deter a few dedicated developers, hobbyists and
publishers as they soldier on with their support of the Jaguar.
Telegames and Songbird Productions are the two prominent publishers
who have backed the black cat and they don't appear to be letting up.
In 1997 we've seen a handful of games that would not have been possible
but for their efforts. And developers such as 4Play have been
tantalizing us with screen shots and info about BattleSphere other
And thanks to the Jaguar Server, a few talented and devoted Atariophiles
are busy at work creating the next wave of software. While some, like
Tetris and Jagmania, are looking more and more like Jaguar Server-only
offerings, others such as Gorf 2000 cannot be ruled out as far as an actual
cartridge release is concerned. Regardless of the outcome of these games,
we'll be sure to keep you informed every step of the way.
