Bugdom 2 Update, New Screenshots
8:40 AM | Tuncer Deniz | Comment on this story

Pangea's Brian Greenstone this morning sent IMG a development update on the highly anticipated sequel to Bugdom, as well as some brand-spanking new screenshots. In the update, Greenstone says Bugdom 2 should be hitting Alpha status soon, and also lays out the company's retail strategy:

We have now completed 90% of the levels, and we expect to be at Alpha within 3 to 4 weeks. Then we just need to finish up the game's menu and interface screens, do lots of testing and tweaking, and then we should be ready to ship it!

We plan on releasing both and online downloadable version of the game, and the boxed version with a CD. The downloadable version will probably go for $30, and the boxed version for $35. And of course we will also release a free demo when the game ships.

As for system requirements, it appears that the minimum configuration for Bugdom 2 is going to be a 400mhz iMac with a Rage 128 / 8MB of VRAM, and 128MB of RAM. However, it also seems to run well on a beige G3/266 (for reasons unknown, it runs faster on a G3/266 than on an iMac 400). It will run on anything from OS 9 to 10.2.

Be sure to check out the screenshots by clicking on the links below. We'll be posting an extensive preview of Bugdom 2 when it enters beta.
