For immediate release:

ROCHESTER, MN -- Anxious Jaguar fans will be happy to know that Protector: Special Edition (P:SE) is almost here. The official release date is April 10, 2002, and the retail price is an incredible $74.95, which includes the bonus glass-mastered Native Demo CD at no additional charge. Orders may be sent via check/MO or PayPal starting on April 3, 2002.

P:SE builds on the immensely popular Protector for the Atari Jaguar with a bundle of new and groundbreaking enhancements, including 40 all-new levels and gameplay improvements to make the game even more enjoyable and challenging for newcomers and pros alike. More jaw-dropping landscapes and backgrounds are sure to keep players hungering for each new level, and several new songs have been added to the mix as well. All-new for this version are a number of high-color RGB title and special screens throughout the game, and some cool rewards for players who dare to complete the game.

As if that wasn't enough, Songbird owner Carl Forhan also indicated that P:SE will include two incredible features to help spur hobby development and lower costs for future CD-based games: BJL and JagFree CD. BJL is an open hobby protocol for downloading Jaguar games to RAM, and is a cost-effective alternative for developing new games. JagFree CD allows new CD games to be published and played easily on any consumer Jaguar CD unit. And the inclusion of an all-new 2048 byte serial EEPROM for saved game data on P:SE allows room for up to 15 games to hold data in addition to P:SE itself.

Several new JagFree CD software projects are currently under development; more details will be forthcoming soon. Look for the copyrighted JagFree CD logo on all current and future Jaguar CD software to ensure compatibility with the versatile JagFree CD standard.
