this game is sooo hard! i can't even get to the second level! but it sure looks pretty. it was great working with everyone on it, and i'm looking forward to seeing it completed.



You did really good work on this. The graphics, especially the descent into the core of the earth, are quite striking.


I can't wait to see and hear it all

I think this game is going to end up great. Also working with all of you was a blast. Everyone was so talented and I hope to work with you guys again.


Want more!

Love the gameplay .. fast and furious. Great work.


Wonderful art

Superb job on the phoenix, and then the concept of descending into the different levels is really breathtaking. Would love to see more done with this!


Stay Tuned...

This game WILL get finished, or my name isn't Orville Redenbacher.
