So it's not a big deal; none of the pages have actual CONTENT yet, but the AVS section (http://amegames.com/vs/) has some Tillerlicious artwork.

"coming soon..." the first mistake in web design.

AME have updated their news (http://www.amegames.com/vs/news.htm) page; they've put up a couple more bits of artwork in the gallery (http://www.amegames.com/vs/gallery.htm). Nothing major, but thought I'd mention it since, what with all the new Bone news, Mojo don't seem to have noticed.

You sure that's new? It looks like it's all from the May update.

Erm, pretty sure, at least until you posted...
Well, I think the last couple in Concept Art are new, along with the last one in Screenshots.
They're mentioned in the August News post, and they've yet to make it into Mojo's database.

I don't even see a news post from August, and all the concept art (5 pieces) and storyboards (3) are in the Mojo DB. I might be going blind. Or I might be looking at a different page than you. How many pieces of concept art are you seeing?

Okay, this is REALLY weird.
I have two computers sharing the same Internet connection. One of them is seeing what you're presumably seeing, the other sees a news post for August and three new pictures - there are now five "Screenshots" in total and seven "Concept Art" pictures.

Here's the new stuff I've got:
August 2005
Bill Tiller here with an AVS update. After a very good E3 we have been spending most of our time conducting business and havenít had a chance to update our website until now.

We still donít have a deal - yet, but the prospects are looking good and we will let you know right here the instant we have signed with a publisher. I canít give any details yet due to the standard NDAs we have to sign, but I am feeling positive that we will have a deal signed very soon. Stay tuned.

In the meantime we are testing our new engine, creating our production schedules and budgets, and have finished our first pass at the 3D Mona model, done by the VERY talented Charles Berrnaert. Head on over to the Gallery section and take a look. Hope you like it.

Also there is a Ďcolor scriptí for our Paris chapters of AVS in the gallery as well. A Ďcolor scriptí is a rough painting that helps me work out the colors and lighting I want to help set the mood for a location or a particular background. Mona has just fed so she can withstand minute doses of sunlight, as long as she is mostly covered, it is cloudy out, she wears a veil and the sun is setting. The SPF 1000 suntan lotion helps too (SPF 100 is the name of a Goth band, so this must be a very old vampire joke). Other than that she can stay in the sun as long as she likes. The drawing of Mona was inspired by one of my favorite illustrators (you guessed it!), Edward Gorey. Heck, the whole game is inspired by the late great Edward Gorey. If you donít know who is I strongly suggest you order his books on Amazon.com or Google his many fan pages. His writing and art are not to be missed by anyone with a dark sense of humor and a love for images of Edwardian aristocrats doing very bad things.

I have a few more background pieces I will add in a few weeks. As soon as I figure out why my alpha channels have a white outline around them I will post an AVI and QuickTime movie of our 3D set test, which looks pretty cool otherwise.

Thatís it for this week kids. So until next time, adios!

EDIT: Looks like the rest of the world has caught up with my PC now. Remember though, you heard it here first :)

Can anyone else access the Autumn Moon (http://www.amegames.com) web site? I just get a login prompt, and then it tells me I'm not authorised to view the page.

Yeah, it's weird. The good news is last time this happened, an update appeared after.
