ACQUIRES UNRELEASED LYNX PROPERTIES FROM BEYOND GAMES
January 10, 2000
For immediate release:
ROCHESTER, MN -- Continuing
the trend of supporting orphaned Atari platforms, Songbird Productions
recently acquired full rights and source code to three unreleased
Lynx properties from former Lynx and Jaguar developer Beyond Games.
The three properties are: Cybervirus, Ultra Vortex, and Mechtiles.
Cybervirus is an incredible
first-person perspective, mission-based action game based on the
Lynx BattleWheels engine set in an apocolyptic future where rogue
computers and virus-infected robotic warriors threaten the very
survival of humanity. Ultra Vortex, the original Lynx version of
what became Ultra Vortek on the Atari Jaguar, is an awesome two-player
fighting game. Mechtiles is a multiplayer game of giant robot combat,
also based on the award-winning BattleWheels engine.
Carl Forhan, owner of
Songbird Productions, said, "Beyond Games has been enthusiastic
about getting these properties transferred so that Songbird may
pick up where they left off. I'm excited to have the opportunity
to finish up these games and publish them for the benefit of Lynx
At press time, Songbird
anticipated that Cybervirus would be the first game completed and
published later in 2000. The other games will be evaluated for their
relative completeness before being put on schedule. All the acquired
games are the sole property of Songbird Productions.
