Monkey Byte Revamps Site
3:44 PM | Michael Eilers | Comment on this story

Independent games publisher Monkey Byte, which recently moved into the arena of music distribution, has completed a revamp of their web site. This new Aqua-inspired design combines all of the aspects of Monkey Byte (including the MyMonkey development community) into one easy-to-use interface. With Shockwave games, community chat and advance previews of future titles, there are a lot more reasons to visit the site than to just buy their games -- though we're sure they would love it if you do that as well. Here are details from the press release:

San Luis Obispo, CA, Feb. 20 - MonkeyByte.com announced today the release
of its newly revamped web site. "We've made many new moves to enhance our
site," states Yon Hardisty, Vice President of Monkey Byte, "and we feel
this release represents a major improvement."

One such move was to expose its once exclusive "myMonkey" community site.
"We've opened up our community, allowing all visitors to download alpha
and beta versions of our newest games," says Hardisty, "as well as access
our on-line shockwave games and community chat."

A developer and publisher of games for Windows, Macintosh, and Palm OS,
Monkey Byte took another major step with its new site by introducing the
sales of independent music CDs. "This site represents our continued
commitment to our customers," says Hardisty, "as well as to the
independent game and music artists that we work with."

Segmented into "channels," the new site offers: Games, Music, Monkey
Stuff, and "myMonkey" Community areas which "allow customers to browse by
their interest," according to Hardisty.

Started in 1995 as a game developer, Monkey Byte expanded into publishing
games produced by independent developers in 1998. Just recently Monkey
Byte announced its intent to sell select music CDs produced by
independent musicians.

The site will soon include audio samples of those CDs as well. Be sure to stop by and check out Monkey Byte's many titles for Mac OS, Palm OS, and yes, even Windows.
