Parsec Update, Images
2:36 PM | Michael Eilers | Comment on this story

Take a moment and think about what you were doing at this time of the year back in 1996. Celebrating your college graduation? Graduating from high school? Making the leap from junior-high punk to freshman? With any luck you've changed dramatically in that interval. Well, so has the game Parsec, which continues its seemingly endless march towards completion. Recently the web site was updated with new information on the game's status, as well as a new screen shot and some desktop images.

Gamers have little right to complain about the extended development time, as this game will be released as "commercial-quality freeware" upon completion. As the recent screen shots reveal, the game does not skimp on the eye-candy; its wide support for various OS versions and graphics cards is also a plus. Once the game is complete the authors will release a SDK which will allow programmers to create "mods," new ship models and other such add-ons to the title.

Visit the Parsec web site for the new screen shots and more information, and be sure to grab the LAN-test demo of the game if you haven't seen it in action.
