Update on Simon 3D, Other e.p.i.c. Titles
11:14 AM | Andy Largent | Comment on this story
With the recent announcement earlier this morning about their new game The Feeble Files, we decided to ask e.p.i.c. about some of their other titles coming to the Mac soon. You may recall they recently finished work on Simon the Sorcerer 2, an adventure very similar to Feeble. They should start soon on Simon 3D, the third title in the series and the first to be set in a fully 3D environment. We got an update from them on this as well as other games like Gorky 17 and Knights and Merchants. Here's the scoop:
Simon 3D: Headfirst told me yesterday that they have gone gold with Simon 3DIt's too bad to hear about the troubles with Gorky 17, but we're still looking forward to this RPG's release this summer. Knights and Merchants looks interesting as well, and we'll keep you posted as it starts to move through the testing process. Also on e.p.i.c.'s roster is Earth 2150, the sequel to the just-released Earth 2140. Stay tuned for an update on that title in the near future.
meaning we can really get going with this one. So far we were only able to
do preliminary work on Simon, i.e. finetune our engine.
Knights and Merchants: Expected to go beta within the next 14 days or so.
Gorky 17: This is the only game where we have really been hit by Topwares
demise. Some of the code we received was incomplete and after many weeks we
have tried to trace the code from them, our developers are now looking for
their own solutions to the problematic areas. But it also means the game is
further delayed, we hope to have it finished by July now.
