Posted in Archived by Squirminator2k at 30/05/05 11:16am CEST

While this has almost nothing to do with Team17 or Dream17, FW has a copy of Myst III he's giving away. You can read about it in this thread on the forum.

Okay, maybe that's boasting a bit. But a new article has decided to sprout out of the Misc. Stuff section. This article glares intently at the Alien Breed franchise, watching for signs of life. You can read the article, if you like.

WormsDC AVIs up
Posted in Archived by Squirminator2k at 25/05/05 11:49am CEST

I've uplaoded several short AVIs of various weapons in WormsDC (excluding, for some reason, the Sheep-On-A-Rope... I'll get on it at some point). They're in AVI format, but they're surprisingly small. However, one testee reported that his comptuer doesn't have the required Codecs to play them. I can't remember what Codecs they use, but I'll check into it.

Anyway, enjoy!

Dream17 Forum opens its arms to Immigrants
Posted in Archived by Squirminator2k at 24/05/05 7:17pm CEST

Several Senior members of the Team17 Forum (and when I say Senior, I mean people who have been regulars there from 2001-2003 onwards, not this new "breed" of Regulars) have expressed dissatisfaction with the current state of the Team17 Forum Community. So we here at Dream17 welcome the Regular to make the jump over to our Forum, where we almost guarantee that idiots will be dealt with in a timely and orderly manner.

Come on in!

Yep, it's official. The first game that Team17 have been showing off to the press at E3 is none other than a PSP adaptation of Amiga classic, Lemmings. The new game will contain both new and old levels as well as having some sort of tool to construct your own levels. Read all about it, here - http://psp.ign.com/articles/616/616887p1.html?fromint=1

Delays
Posted in Archived by Squirminator2k at 16/05/05 5:47pm CEST

Several planned updates, including expansions and improvements to the Softography+, are going to be put on hold for the time being for reasons I would rather not go into detail about. For the time being, feel free to pop by the Forum. Or else.

And the winners are...
Posted in Archived by SuperFrog at 12/05/05 12:36am CEST

Evening, Team17 fanboys and girls. You're all gathered round your computers...because you need to get out more. (Silence from audience) I'm kidding, I'm kidding.(Pause) You're all here because you've been itching to find out who's won the big Dream17 competition that we've been running here. Well, I can tell you now that we had a lot of entrants and some were good and some were bad. But there was one thing that shone through all of them... and that was the passion these guys had for Team17. (Pause, bitter) A passion that died in me, the moment that Martyn Brown told me I had to move out of the company basement and look for work elsewhere.(Pause) Anyway, I'm not here to judge. I'm here to announce... and so that's exactly what I'm going to do. (Pause, getting out an envelope) The winner for best piece of Team17 fanfiction goes to... PAUL.POWER! Take a bow, Paul! Your tale of army exploits touched us all (Pause) Then we issued a restraining order. (Silence)Whoa... tough crowd. Anyway, onto the secon
d category. Music. (Pause, getting an envelope out) And the winner for best Team17 inspired musical piece goes to... M3NTAL! (laughing) I tell you, M3ntal, we'll be humming that tune of yours all week. (hums the worms theme) Oops, wrong tune! (laughing bitterly, Pause) Okay,
final category is Fanart. We got some great pictures of me for fanart but the winner is... (Pause, annoyed) AlienKing?!? What the hell? They're giving out this prize for a picture of an alien? (Pause) Who the hell judges these things? (Pause)Hold on a sec. (mumbling,Pause) Okay, right, I've sorted it out. The winner for
best Fanart will now go to MunkeeforaHead while the overall winner is AlienKing who gets the booby prize of the signed concept art.(Pause) What do you mean the art's the star prize? Who'd want a picture of a worm on their wall? (Pause) Well, yes, I would prefer the pinball. (Pause) I'm sorry, that is my opinion. (Pause)Oh, what the hell. Everyone enjoy your prizes and congratulations to Paul, M3ntal,Munkee and AK. You're all winners! (leaves to "we are the champions" music)

Fans of FanFiction, Rejoice!
Posted in Archived by Squirminator2k at 03/05/05 1:51pm CEST

If you read and enjoyed the exploits of the Worm Mad/S2K Chronicles you may be interested to know that a Follow Up story is in the works. While it doesn't follow on from the original story, it does continue the same style humour, as well as some familiar characters - this is basically as "Hot Fuzz" is to "Shaun Of The Dead" (look it up on the IMDB if you're not sure!).
