Phase Zero news

Posted by Carl ( on June 07, 2002 at 09:33:41:

I don't have time to do a press release on this for now, so here's the deal:

Songbird has negotiated rights to Phase Zero for the Jaguar. Bruce has been authorized by Songbird to produce a small number of carts, and BTW the cart label will also receive some changes to reflect this news.

In addition, the original developers have suggested they still had the source code around somewhere, but obviously they haven't looked at it in a few years. They're still searching for it, and if they find it, I will receive access to that as well.

So, for now, Songbird will be releasing the Phase Zero demo carts (along with B&C). If things go well, I'll eventually get the source and maybe in another year or two (that's how these things go, you know), we can get a full version of the game. But that's a big IF, and no one should assume a new version is coming out for a LONG time, if ever!

I realize the PZ demo cart will not be for everybody, and it's clearly not as complete as other games published by Songbird. But it's a very cool, playable demo with high framerate and great graphics. A nice addition to any Jag fan's collection.

Watch for the PZ carts to go on sale at Songbird in the next week or two!

This pic of a Jag kiosk that appeared on eBay some time ago was sent by Wilbur G. McCalmont . Eventually I'll add  this to the hardware section but its definitely too cool not to post right away.

Despite a few games being canceled, the Jaguar development scene is still alive and kicking. To the delight of Jag fans, Protector SE was recently released. FORCE Design and Starcat Developments are both still developing games. 

All three of FD's games seem to be making progress as can be seen in these screens:
