Westlake Adds Two New Projects
6:00 AM | Lucian Fong | Comment on this story
Westlake Interactive updated their Project Status page last Friday with two new projects: Hasbro Interactive's remake of the classic 80's game Centipede and a mysterious "Unrevealed Project," which is currently in contract negotiations.
MacSoft continues to tap the somewhat-neglected mainstream crowd with ports of Hasbro's family-oriented titles, such as Jeopardy, Risk II, Wheel of Fortune, Monopoly Casino (which recently reached Final Candidate status), and now Centipede.
The revival of this classic game features much more than the well remembered "shoot the falling centipede" gameplay. Leaping Lizards, the original developer, added a 3D game engine and an adventure mode where you navigate a 3D world populated with mushrooms and houses. The short learning curve should make Centipede very popular with the younger crowd and non-hardcore gamers.

As for the "Unrevealed Project," obviously there are no details at the moment. Mark Adams wrote to tell us that they would be making an announcement in "a month or two."
