Status Update on Fantasoft Games
5:59 PM | Lucian Fong | Comment on this story

Fantasoft, Macintosh shareware developer and publisher, dropped us an e-mail chock full of information on their current and future products.

According to their press release, Monkey Shines 2: Gorilla Warfare, is nearing completion and should be released by Christmas. All you fans of the original Monkey Shines, brace yourselves for some more classic side-scrolling action. Now with multiple-layer parallax scrolling, 16-bit color, and a new hero to boot, this is a sequel with definite appeal.

New Centurions is Fantasoft's upcoming role-playing game based in a science fiction world. A public beta release is scheduled for October 10 so that players can test out some of the key elements of the game, such as Character Creation, Combat, Item Upgrades and Character Upgrades. Development of this title has been conducted in total silence, so we are quite eager to see what they have come up with.

In Realmz-related news, Fantasoft has released version 7.1.2 of its role-playing fantasy game. The Realmz Character Editor has also been updated to 7.1. The new version fixes problems with item editing for the two newest scenarios. Speaking of which, two new Realmz scenarios, War in the Sword Lands and Half Truth, have been released. The require at least version 7.1.1 of Realmz to play.
