MWNY: Aspyr and Pangea Team Up
9:44 AM | Andy Largent | Comment on this story

In the lastest Aspyr newsletter launched from the Expo, it was announced that the company is teaming up with Brain Greenstone and Pangea Software to start distributing the Mac-first titles creating by this company immediately. Included in the package is Pangea's upcoming space adventure Otto Matic, which is set for release late in the year. Other popular Pangea games such as Bugdom and Cro-Mag Rally are also available now from the Aspyr store. Here's a clip with more:

Pangea Software, Inc. has recently teamed up with Aspyr in a distribution
deal that will include Cro-Mag Rally, Bugdom and Ottomatic. As of today,
you will be able to order Pangea's hit titles (Cro-Mag and Bugdom), via
our online store (

Ottomatic is Brain Greenstone's (President and CEO of Pangea Software,
Inc.) latest project. Otto is a sci-fi hero who battles against
unearthly enemies. Loosely based on old sci-fi B movies, don't be
surprised to see a few green men and giant tomatoes. Get your ray gun
ready for battle.

"We are big fans of Brian Greenstone's work," says Ted Staloch, VP of
Sales for Aspyr. "We are excited about the future and think Ottomatic
will be the first success of a brilliant future."

We will be showing Ottomatic in its current stage of conversion. It is
scheduled for release later this year. Preorders will be accepted as a
more definite date becomes available.

Pangea has been publishing and distributing their own works for a while, and it's good to see they can now put the focus back on making great games. We wish them and Aspyr the best of luck with future titles.
