Progress Report on Pangea's Otto Matic
9:16 AM | Tuncer Deniz | Comment on this story
Brian Greenstone, the author of hit titles such as Cro-Mag Rally and Bugdom, has been busily working on his new game, Otto Matic. A sci-fi title that pays homage to the great "b" movies of the 50's and 60's, Otto Matic has been progressing well, but as Greenstone tells us, the game will probably slip into January. Here's the update he sent IMG:
We're probably 3 days from finishing Level 6, so we've now got levels 1,2,3 and 6 done, and parts of other levels in. We've got much of the real music in the game, and the guy doing the music is absolutely fantastic! The stuff is very authentically 1950's sci-fi.Greenstone also sent us a screenshot of Level 6 that is coincidentally a mix of Nanosaur and Bugdom: there are giant lizards and giant bugs. He describes it as the "Radioactive Giant Things Gone Awry" level where Otto can drink a potion to become gigantic to do battle with the big monsters.
Even though the game is not even 1/2 done, it is clearly going to be the best thing we've ever done. Our schedule slipped a little bit, however. We originally planned on being done in December, but now it looks like January. So, it'll probably be released in February.
There will be some "big news" to be announced about Otto Matic at Macworld.
We'll be sure to keep tabs on Otto Matic and expect a big announcement about Otto Matic come Macworld New York in July.
