Team17 Classic IP
Posted in Archived by Squirminator2k at 25/07/06 9:18pm CEST

Martyn Brown has stated in this thread over on the Team17 Forum that Team17 IP could be appearing on GameTap appears to be a legal emulation site of sorts with a proprietary download client and a monthly membership of about $9.95 USD per month. More on this as it develops.

As some of you may know, Team17's animator, Luther, has a habit of sticking whatever sprite he's working on at the moment as his avatar on the Team17 Forum, and you'll be very interested to see what his avatar is at the moment. Is this linked to the above, or is it a different project entirely...?

Digging through my stuff, I found my old Worms Armageddon cursor pack I made long ago (I think it used to be on ye olde WorMatrix).

For those that like the Worms Armageddon cursors, this cursor pack includes a whole bunch of cursors based on them, to replace the default Windows ones. More instructions and info inside. You can get it here.

Also, if you wanna support your fellow co-webmaster, feel free to spread the word about my new service: SupSpider Smile

No new Alien Breed game in development
Posted in Archived by Squirminator2k at 05/07/06 4:51pm CEST

So apparently everything we've reported about the new Alien Breed game that was supposedly in development following AB2004's shelving is, ahem, entirely untrue. In the aforementioned thread on the Team17 Forum, Spadge has stated that there "There isn't one in production." I was under the impression, based on comments Spadge had made over the past year or so, that a new Alien Breed game was certainly in the planning stages at least. However, in Spadge's defence, all he had said was that there was interest in the franchise and that a new game could be developed, not that one was being developed. I sincerely apologise if I have mislead any Team17/Alien Breed fans - I'm just as disappointed as you are. Sad

Speculation is Ripe! Pt. II: The Ripening
Posted in Archived by Squirminator2k at 04/07/06 6:09pm CEST

I started this thread concerning Team17's Unreal 3 engine shenanigans over at the Team17 Forum, and Spadge left this comment:

"We aren't building an FPS game, that genre is very congested.

However, I can't say what we are building with it, either.

There's a ton of stuff going on right now although there probably won't be too much in terms of official release information (aside from something for 360 XBLA) in the near future.

Speculation is Ripe, and the Plot she is a-thick'nin'.
