ANNOUNCES FUTURE ATARI LINEUP
April 14, 2000
For immediate release:
ROCHESTER, MN -- Songbird's
fourth new Jaguar title in six months isn't even out the door yet
as word of more Atari Lynx and Jaguar projects has surfaced. Carl
Forhan, owner of Songbird Productions, remarked, "The response of
fans thus far to new Lynx titles and particularly in recent the
months to the new Jaguar titles has been substantial. I'm thrilled
to have been a part in bringing out some great games that might
have otherwise been lost forever, and equally exciting is the opportunity
to discuss some future projects for the Atari world."
Heading up the list
is Cybervirus (TM) for the Atari Lynx. This incredible 3D mission-based
action game will be a hit with every Lynx fan, since it's based
on the same game engine that gave Lynx fans BattleWheels. Next on
the list is Championship Racing (TM), a cool super-smooth overhead
racing game featuring multiple tracks, tight control, and multiplayer
options! Finally, Planar Wars 3D (working title) -- a game that
puts you in the cockpit of the last surviving defense starship --
and Ultravore (TM) -- an explosive comlynxable fighting game --
will give Lynx fans even more to look forward to down the road.
At press time, Songbird
hopes to have at least one new Lynx game completed in time for CGE2K
but further details were unavailable.
Lest Jaguar fans lose
hope, several future Jaguar projects are also under consideration.
One potential bright spot appeared recently as Songbird acquired
complete rights and source to the Virtual VCS, which emulates the
classic Atari VCS (or 2600) games on the Jaguar platform. Additionally,
Songbird has prototyped and will be producing a Rapid Fire Controller
for the Jaguar. This controller has been a hit with early testers,
and greatly enhances the gameplay in button-mashing games like Raiden
and Zero 5.

Songbird booth at CGE2K to buy
