Deimos Rising Reaches Beta 3
9:40 AM | Andy Largent | Comment on this story

The Ambrosia progress logs have been updated with good news regarding the arcade-inspired scrolling shooter Deimos Rising, noting that it has moved to a third beta stage. This means the highly anticipated sequel to Mars Rising should be approaching completion in the near future. All of the major features are implemented now, and the team is mainly focused on making the gameplay fun and challenging. Here's the full update:

Deimos has reached beta 3!

This release is mostly concerned with gameplay - tuning the difficulty, adjusting scoring and bonus opportunities, seeing if all the gameplay elements work well or not. Almost all interface, audio and technical work has been completed and most of the effort remaining will be concerned with making the game as fun as possible before release.

The progress log contains one new screen shot as well. If you're looking for more media from the game, head over now to the Deimos Rising beta site. We'll keep you posted as this title moves towards release later this year.
