afer almost a year of being dead-in-the-water; we recently put a
bunch of effort in place to turn this into a real title after the
talks with SCEE ended up going no-where. we teamed up with an
excellent artist guy and audio/sound effects dude to refresh
the Lemmings concept with a 2011 update - in a pre-historic setting!
in-game screenies - completely new but totally familiar?
It already is starting to get a lot of rave-reviews from users - but we
are not yet finished! Loads more levels to be added to the game and of
course a bunch of improvements to make Caveman the game year for 2011
(a modest goal - we know)!
>> Thank you for all the support!
we have received a lot of attention and support from many users
and websites over the world around bringing Lemmings into the radar
for iPhone and Palm Pre - even with the cease & desist, it has
not put a damper on our enthusiasm for this title.
in the event we have no success talking with SCEE (Sony Entertainment)
we will rework all the artwork, audio, music and levels to create
a brand new title based on the engine - which we wrote from scratch
without on our own based on observation in 2001.
we did start an independent version a while ago got side tracked
with other tasks.
level 1 - new artwork redesign (late 2009)
using the same engine - but it would require a lot more effort
to convert 120 levels.
>> SCEE - Sony Entertainment Cease & Desist
as much as we would love to have this title reach everyone, we
have unfortunately been contacted and instructed by Sony's
intellectual property and legal department to remove our Lemmings
conversion from our websites and distribution channels.
while are did this as a tribute to the game - we can only hope
that Sony actually does a conversion for platforms like iPhone
and Palm Pre in the near future. we will open communication
with Sony to explore the rights for these platforms!
>> YOU TUBE VIDEO POSTED!
while many of you anxiously wait for this - here is a video of
it in action on an iphone.
thanks for Joel Evans over at the
blog on zdnet for making this video!
to assist with bandwidth usage - we have moved the older entries to another page
