Worms Forts Live!
Posted in Archived by Squirminator2k at 27/08/04 9:05pm CEST

British and Australian Worms fans were annoyed at the fact that Live! compability was not included with the Sega release of Worms3D whilst the American Acclaim release enjoyed Live! support. Well now at last we have a little bit of good news - Worms Forts: Under Siege will support X-Box Live! in the UK as well as the US. And with WF:US apparently being a much better title than W3D if certain magazines by the name of GamesMaster are to be believed, this could prove to be the best console version of Worms yet...

Team17 Anthology for CD32?
Posted in Archived by Squirminator2k at 27/08/04 8:14pm CEST

Whilst doing a quick Google search for Team17-related news I stumbled across this which, at first, I thought was a re-release package that someone such as Epic Marketing (who re-released SuperFrog for the CD32 back in 1999) might have put together. Instead it turns out to be a fan-made compilation which is available to download as an ISO and playable on both CD32 emulators and the CD32 console itself. I still hold out hope that Team17 will release a Retrospective Collection for the PC featuring ports of their most popular Amiga titles, but it seems unlikely. Ho hum.

.: Edit :.

Further digging around the English Amiga Board has lead me to this - someone is currently planning to recreate the original Alien Breed 3D using the AB3DII game engine. Spiffy...

More Apologies
Posted in Archived by Squirminator2k at 22/08/04 12:41am CEST

I'm terribly sorry that this site has been neglected rather a lot as of late. This, as I have stated before, is not my fault but a result of my current living circumstances. I do plan to get a huge (read: HUUUUGE) update sorted out soonish. In the meantime, here's some music.

In other news, Martyn Brown has opted not to allow us permission to host Arcade Pool II and the WA Screensaver here at Dream17 for the moment. I'll leave it for the moment but I'll contact him again towards Christmas.

More AB2K4 News
Posted in Archived by Squirminator2k at 17/08/04 10:44pm CEST

I emailed Martyn Brown regarding rumours that AB2K4 has been axed. He had this to say:

'I think a more politically correct term would be "suspended pending further
publisher interest".

It's true that we're no longer working on it and are pursuing other projects
which are currently perhaps more viable in terms of achieving a publishing
deal, which represents our bread & butter.

It's a bit of a shame really, because we were quite excited by the look of
what we had going, but development (and the industry as a whole) is far
removed from how things used to be!

Sad news, but at least it's not being trashed altogether. I hold out hope that this game will be released in the next year or so.

Worms Forts Demo
Posted in Archived by Worm Mad at 11/08/04 8:42pm CEST

Fairly recently, a demo of Team17's forthcoming game - Worms Forts: Under Siege, has become available. Intended as an exclusive to the PC-Gamer Mag, this demo is currently circulating the web (without T17's consent). Team17 claim however that there will be a more final demo available on their site, before the game is released. Having played the demo, myself, I can safely say that Team17 look like they have another hit on their hands. I reserve further judgement till the game is released.

Go Pooka Go!
Posted in Archived by Squirminator2k at 03/08/04 11:15pm CEST

Our main SuperFrog Fan Man Pooka not only got his website mentioned in a German games magazine called Lotek64, but he was also interviewed! You can find scans of the magazine here. I'll mirror these images as soon as I am able, which will hopefully be very much of the soonage.
