Get it either from Feral Interactive's support site or from Dream 17.

There's also a download for the normal v1.0.1 patch for Worms 3D (Mac) on the same page for, since it wasn't available from Dream17 before.
Yes, we take care for Mac users too. Finally.

IGN posts Worms retrospective, uses Dream17 content
Posted in Worms by Squirminator2k at 18/03/08 3:59am CET

A Worms Retrospective has been posted on IGN, and they've been rather cheeky and used one of our Total Wormage screenshots without asking us or crediting us. Which is nice.

Look familiar?

The article also has occasional bits of misinformation, such as the claim that the franchise has been going for "over twenty years" and then go on to say Andy designed the version version of the game in 1990, which is less than twenty years ago. They also claim that Worms 3D came out in 1999, a good couple of years before the GameCube and PS2 even hit the market. Have a read of the article yourself and see if you can spot any more inaccuracies.

Worms: A Space Oddity release soon
Posted in Worms by Squirminator2k at 10/03/08 11:55pm CET

Worms: A Space Oddity is apparently due for release very soon. The Nintendo US website has the game listed for a March 11th release, while Amazon US lists it as March 17th. This appears consistent with the US release of Worms Open Warfare 2, which Amazon US had listed as coming out a week after its retail release elsewhere.

Interestingly, Amazon UK lists the game as having a March 28th release, which if accurate means this is the second Team 17 game to see a release outside of the UK first. The previous title was Lemmings PS3.

WOW2 on the PlayStation3 Store...?
Posted in Rumours & Speculation by Squirminator2k at 10/03/08 11:48pm CET

Kotaku recently posted what may be a leaked screenshot of the new PlayStation Store for the PS3, and if you have a look you can see the Worms Open Warfare 2 logo on the left, between the Pixar and Patapon logos. Now as Kotaku themselves state, this screenshot may well be a mock-up - be it Sony in-house or just a hoax - but if Worms Open Warfare 2 did make it to the online store, it would likely remain a PSP exclusive. You wouldn't be able to play it on your PS3.

Sorry, PS3 Worms fans - you'll have to wait for now.

Worms XBLA wins an award which isn't an award
Posted in Worms by Squirminator2k at 04/03/08 6:49pm CET

Calling it the Xbox Live Arcade Awards is at least 30% inaccurate. Three of the "awards" - "Best-Selling Game," "Most-Played Game" and "Highest-Rated Game" - aren't awards at all. No special consideration needs to be made to give those particular awards to anyone. All you need to do is look at the numbers and the person with the highest one wins that £5 WH Smith Gift Certificate.

Still, developing the most-played Xbox Live Arcade game of 2007 is definitely something to get excited about. Worms for Xbox Live was that game, which is fantastic. It's still one of the most-played Xbox Live games overall, I believe (the last time I checked it was in sixth place) proving that the 2D side of the franchise still has some sticking power despite Team 17's reluctance to release any further content or fix any of the glaring bugs that the game has. Well done, Team 17.
