Shoes to Fill
Posted in Archived by Squirminator2k at 29/07/05 9:00am CEST

As you may be aware, FW has left Dream17 and we're now after someone to fill his shoes. If you reckon you're able to update our Frontpage with the latest Worms news, keeping a Fanboyesque eye on developments and getting them up on the site post haste, whilst being able to regularly write articles (most likely to be monthly), then feel free to drop me an email/

Interesting Development
Posted in Archived by Squirminator2k at 23/07/05 3:30pm CEST

Army Men has been removed from the Credits page on the Lynne Music website (Bjorn Lynne's website). Either the information was incorrect, or Bjorn simply placed it on his website a little prematurely (i.e. ahead of official announcements).

I'd like to take this oppertunity to mention that my previous comments about Army Men are, of course, personal comments that to not necessarily reflect the opinions of other Dream17 Staff. I extend this to include the comment I'm about to make that states that Army Men is a franchise that should have died when 3D0 went bust, and that I sincerely hope that Team17 are not involved in any form of redevelopment of the franchise.

Army Men game in development...?
Posted in Archived by Squirminator2k at 20/07/05 5:43pm CEST

Team17 are starting to make a habit out of developing old franchises. First they get their mits on Lemmings, now they are supposedly developing a new Army Men game in cahoots with Take 2 Interactive (source: Bjorn Lynne's website). While Lemmings is a great snag for the Teamsters, I am less than confident about Army Men, arguably one of the worst franchises ever, next to Tomb Raider.

Thanks to Ash for giving us the heads up, and we'll keep you updated as we get more news.

Hooked Gamers have knocked together a Preview based around the Offline Demo. You can have a look at the Preview here. They also have the Demo for download too, which is one better than we've been able to manage.

The Dream Team
Posted in Archived by Squirminator2k at 18/07/05 12:31pm CEST

Calling all Online Game Fans! Dream17 is looking to set up an Online Gaming Clan to complete in leagues for various games - not just Worms/Team17 titles - and we'll be opening it up to anyone. We're looking for someone who would be interested in running the clan itself - leading the Clan, recruiting at the start, and (if possible) running and maintaining a Dream17 Clan Website.

The Leader of the Dream17 Clan would also, effectively, be a Staff Member, giving you access to a few perks Smile

If you think this is the sort of thing you're capable of handling in your free leisure time, then drop me an email.

Demos and some Music files down
Posted in Archived by Squirminator2k at 05/07/05 6:32pm CEST

The website that hosts some of our larger files - - was apparently DOS attacked recently and as such has been taken offline, so some of our files are inaccessable. Our priority is trying to get the Worms 4 demo back up online somewhere - on this server, if necessary. I'll keep you posted.
