I'm surprised... http://www.justadventure.com/articles/Simon3D.shtm

Good to see that Randy's sources were wrong after all. Now I just hope they "update" the game before publishing it so it doesn't look like an unreleased game from 1997.

I have a bad feeling they won't...

Too bad about that "Sam and Max" game Infinite Machine was making, though.

did they cancel sam and max?! Crap in a hat! Please say it ain;t so!:eek:

Its about bloody time. I got a sodding leaflet advertising this game when I bought Simon the Sorcerer II NEW, when it was first released. Whats that I've been waiting, now? 7 years?

Nah, to make a long story short, it's just JA+ being mis-informed. Don't worry about it.

If its going to be anything like it was when it was first inteded for release then they can keep it.

Sorry Adventurer, I was referring to something Remi, tel and I were discussing on IRC at that moment. Guess you had to be there. Didn't mean to freak anyone out.

You're such a gossip-monger

It did look bad, but the point is that this game is like a relic - a forgotten game from the period when the adventure ruled PC gaming. Graphics can go to hell, if I played games for graphics then I'd never have got past 'Don't be a tuna head, Bernard.'

graphics are very important on a scale of comfortability. Monkey Island doesn't look as good technologicaly as Grim Fandango, but both are easy to play because the look is just nice.

Simon3D was in retina-bursting colour and looked so asthetically displeasing that being violently sick on your monitor would actually reduce the number of clashes and lumpy things.

Tee. :)

Though a year or two ago I saw a preview of it in a mag.
They really put it down, and tbh, the pics didn't look that promising either. Though that was still some early version.
I hope they've improved.

I loved StS2, I guess I'll buy Simon3D too.

I played the review code when it was first intended to come out, i dont know how it will be now, but back then it really was god awful.

Unless they've changed it completely i wouldn't reccommend it as it will more likely ruin your previous Simon experiences than complement them.

I'm actually glad they're releasing it. Now they can get it out and get some money from it, before forgetting that they ever made it. Unless, ofcourse, they've changed it... I think they said they were going to. Bah.

I hope they'll change it for the better

I always thought the website (simon3d.com) had crap pics on. I just thought that they thought they were gonna revolutionise adventure gaming, then Grim was released and they became worried that their 3d game was sh*te in comparison. Then some developer pulled the plug when they found out. Maybe that happened, I dunno.
