IMG Previews Otto Matic, Reviews Dracula
4:51 PM | IMG News | Comment on this story

IMG has followed up our "first look" at this title with a full-blown preview. Pangea’s latest title in production is called Otto Matic, another 3D action/adventure game that manages to carry all that Greenstone learned in creating his previous titles forward without duplication or repetition. Here's a sample from the preview:

Although his previous titles were certainly praised for their colorful, vibrant 3D graphics, Otto is clearly an attempt by Greenstone to take Mac game visuals to the next level. With a cutting-edge engine crafted with Apple’s OpenGL, the game is packed with special effects such as motion blur, simulated “lens flares,” glowing objects, wobbly landscapes and sophisticated animation. The result is a game which is a visual knockout as well as a challenging diversion crafted by a veteran game designer.
IMG has also posted a review of Dracula Resurrection from Dreamcatcher Games. In his debut review for IMG, Andrew Martin describes the game as "not exactly stellar" but might appeal to those who are "into the whole Dracula scene".

Be sure to check out both articles today.
