Details have emerged during the past week about work being done on a number of new AmigaDE games.
Nexus Development have announced that they are developing a Pang style game for the AmigaDE. In this platform game there will be enemies such as UFOs and monsters, and you will have to avoid bombs and hazards such as acid, nails, and beams. An editor will be included with the game to allow gamers to create their own levels. The developers are currently seeking musicians and beta-testers to help out.
In an Interview with GetBoinged, Kaliko revealed that they are working on network-enabled games, although as they are in the early stages of development they won't be announced until later. In addition Kaliko also indicated a desire to create two player games for handhelds using infrared as a means of communication. However, only when Amiga Inc decide to include support in AmigaDE for IR (or Bluetooth) will such titles appear.
This week was supposed to have an important week for Amiga Inc as they were expected to release the Amiga Anywhere Entertainment Pack #1 on the 15th of April. This Pack includes the Amiga Anywhere Content Engine, which allows AmigaDE software to be used on devices using Windows CE 3.0, Windows CE .NET, Pocket PC, and Pocket PC 2002 including handhelds, smart phones, web pads, and set-top boxes. Amiga Inc have not yet made any statement about the delay, even though eager users on the AA Forum have expressed their disappointment.
