For Immediate Release:
ROCHESTER, MN -- Songbird's fourth new Jaguar title in six months isn't even out the door yet as word of more Atari Lynx and Jaguar projects has surfaced. Carl Forhan, owner of Songbird Productions, remarked, "The response of fans thus far to new Lynx titles and particularly in recent the months to the new Jaguar titles has been substantial. I'm thrilled to have been a part in bringing out some great games that might have otherwise been lost forever, and equally exciting is the opportunity to discuss some future projects for the Atari world."
Heading up the list is Cybervirus (TM) for the Atari Lynx. This incredible 3D mission-based action game will be a hit with every Lynx fan, since it's based on the same game engine that gave Lynx fans BattleWheels. Next on the list is Championship Racing (TM), a cool super-smooth overhead racing game featuring multiple tracks, tight control, and multiplayer options! Finally, Planar Wars 3D (working title) -- a game that puts you in the cockpit of the last surviving defense starship -- and Ultravore (TM) -- an explosive comlynxable fighting game -- will give Lynx fans even more to look forward to down the road.
At press time, Songbird hopes to have at least one new Lynx game completed in time for CGE2K but further details were unavailable.
Lest Jaguar fans lose hope, several future Jaguar projects are also under consideration. One potential bright spot appeared recently as Songbird acquired complete rights and source to the Virtual VCS, which emulates the classic Atari VCS (or 2600) games on the Jaguar platform. Additionally, Songbird has prototyped and will be producing a Rapid Fire Controller for the Jaguar. This controller has been a hit with early testers, and greatly enhances the gameplay in button-mashing games like Raiden and Zero 5.
New pages have been added for several upcoming releases on the Songbird web pages. Be sure to check out:
