Virtual Programming has announced three more titles planned for release in 2009. The first, Pipemania, is a quick paced puzzle title which builds on the time based pipe connection of the original with new play mechanics, pipe pieces, and expanded game modes.


Pipe Mania builds on the infectious playability of the original with expanded game modes, new themes, new play mechanics and new pieces to challenge players of all types and ages. Pipemania makes the move to the Mac, with versions already released on PC, PSP, PS2 and NDS.

Alfonso Senior, having made his fortune from the original Pipe Mania has retired to his own private island paradise. There’s just one problem! The island is being ruined by cowboy plumbers. The BIGGEST of them all: Buffalo Bonzo is wreaking havoc all over the island. Playing as Alfonso’s children, Junior and Fawcett, it’s up to you to take over the family business and save the island from pollution.

Pipe Mania is a frenetic, addictive, puzzle game, accessible to all ages young and old. It requires quick thinking, hand-eye co-ordination and keen spatial awareness.
The second announced title is X3: Terran Conflict, the conclusion to the sci-fi space action series. Terran Conflict will feature a larger universe, the new Terran faction, and more than 100 new spaceships.
