Bugdom 2 Goes Alpha
10:43 AM | Tuncer Deniz | Comment on this story

Pangea's Brian Greenstone emailed IMG this morning to let us know that Bugdom 2 has gone alpha, the first major milestone towards completing the game. Bugdom 2 has been in development since early this year and based on Greenstone's estimates, should be shipping sometime late this year.

Greenstone offered the following on the game going alpha:

I just wanted to send out an informal press released letting you all know that our latest game, Bugdom 2, has gone Alpha! All of the levels are done and everything is working, so we'll be spending the next month completing the audio and replacing some temporary art with the real thing. We're on schedule to ship before November 1st.

All signs indicate that Bugdom 2 is going to be a huge hit since half of the Bugdom 1 tech support emails have notes in them like "we can't wait for Bugdom 2". We've sold over 30,000 retail units of Bugdom 1, and there were over 4,000,000 bundled copies on the iMac and iBook, so the installed base is ripe for a hit!

Greenstone also sent us four new screenshots of the new game. Be sure to check them out at the links below.
