Alien Nations Update
11:48 AM | Ben Boffey | Comment on this story

One combined developer and publisher which often gets less attention that its American counterparts is German company Titan Computer, probably best known to Mac gamers for their port of Shogo: MAD. Titan has just returned from Arktis Mac-Day, a small show run by German retailer Arktis Software, where they were showing off a movie of an upcoming title; Rage Hard. Previously know as Head Hunter, expect the preview movie of Rage Hard to go public later this month.


A project which a little more well-known is Alien Nations, an interesting god game/RTS cross-over based around three unique races, the Pimmons, the Amazons and the Sajiki. The Pimmons are cute little fantasy creatures with magic powers, the Amazons are pretty humanoids and the Sajikis are ravenous insects. Using the usual skills of building your empire while developing areas of trade, diplomacy and research, you're race interacts with the others while you try to keep your citizens happy. This isn't a new format but it is approached in an imaginative and humorous manner and presented in simulated 3D. For more informative be sure to check out the official web site. Alien Nations is being finalized right now and should be available later this month.
