I'm the original developer of the old Ambrosia Software 2d exploration shooter/metroidvania game SketchFighter 4000 Alpha. Like a lot of other classic games from Ambrosia it hasn't been updated in many years, and now that they're gone it's hard to find or play these games (there are multiple threads about this her on the forum). So, after being contacted by a couple of old fans of the game I decided to revive the game to make it playable on modern macOS versions and available again to the public.

The revival project is now nearing completion, with beta testing now in progress. If you want to read more, or sign up to get notified on release you can do so here:

Very cool! Never played this one back in the day.

And because things come in threes, Ferazel's Wand has got to be next!
