GEARS UP FOR EXPO, ANNOUNCES JAGFREE CD
July 25th, 2001
For immediate release:
ROCHESTER, MN -- Long-time
Atari Jaguar and Lynx supporter Songbird Productions recently unveiled
plans to make a splash at the next Classic Gaming Expo to be held
in Las Vegas, NV, on August 11th and 12th.
"I want this year to
be the most fun ever for Lynx and Jaguar fans," commented Carl Forhan,
owner of Songbird. "That's why Songbird has expanded to a double
booth at the show. We need to make more room for lots of new product
as well as something really cool: a mini-museum for rare/prototype
Lynx and Jaguar items. You can expect to see some developer hardware,
unreleased games, and more at the Songbird booth this year."
Featured games at the
show will include Championship Rally(tm), the exciting new four-player
overhead racer for the Lynx, and Protector(tm) SE, the highly-anticipated
sequel to the fan-favorite Protector which was released for the
Jaguar in late 1999. Protector SE contains new graphics, music,
level designs, and gameplay enhancements, plus one particuarly intriguing
new feature: JagFree CD(tm) bypass support.
Carl commented, "JagFree
CD bypass support means that Protector SE will be able to play brand
new, unencrypted Jaguar CD games released in the future. By moving
to the CD medium, an aspiring publisher can release games on a smaller
budget and at a user-friendly price point." Carl also described
plans to eventually release the JagFree CD code into the public
domain, to encourage other developers to include the same support
in any future game or stand-alone cartridge. Protector SE is slated
for a late fall 2001 release.
is the premier developer and publisher for the Atari Lynx and Jaguar.
