Worms World Party Remastered coming July 8 Posted in Worms by SupSuper at 10/06/15 4:34pm EDT
Team17 has announced they're gonna remaster the black sheep of the 2D worms games, Worms World Party. It's always held a bit of an awkward position next to its much more popular and supported older brother, Worms Armageddon, but now with both of them being available on Steam, the WA vs WWP arguments can live on!
Are you a huge fan of the Amiga? Who are we kidding, of course you are, we all are, otherwise what would we even be doing here. Team17 and many more great game companies started on this wonderful platform.
So, you're probably interested in this Kickstarter for a book celebrating the Amiga, jam-packed full of iconic game art, screenshots, videos, boxart, music, interviews, contributions from industry legends from that era, and more!
"New from Team17 - Flockers is a twisted blend of Lemmings' inspired gameplay and Tim Burton style macabre, all topped off with a dose of that classic Worms humour!
Held for years within the evil thrall of the Worms, the sheep are finally making a dash for freedom! Escaping the tyrannical Worms, the flock must dodge their way past all manner of lethal machinery and traps as they negotiate their path through the confinement of the Worms weapons factory and onwards to pastures green.
Flockers will be coming to PC via Steam Early Access in Q2 2014."
Well that came out of nowhere. Not much else is known, but you can check the official Facebook for upcoming details.
Love classic Amiga games but can't be bothered to set up an emulator just to replay them? Well you're in luck, Amigoianer has been developing game wrappers for Mac OS X that include a pre-configured emulator for various Amiga games, so you can play them as simply as any other application. You just need the appropriate game disk files and Amiga ROMs to use them.
Currently the only available Team17 games are Alien Breed and Overdrive, but we hope to see more added later.
Worms Battlegrounds coming to next-gen consoles Posted in Worms by SupSuper at 10/02/14 10:00am EST
Worms Battlegrounds is the name of the newly announced Worms game, proving that Team17 still hasn't run out of words to put next to "Worms". This will be Team17's first title on the new next-gen consoles, slated for release in 2014 for Xbox One and PlayStation 4.
If you've thumbed through the Softography+, you've noticed a lot of titles with another developer's title on them. Back in the Amiga days Team17 didn't develop everything themselves, they often acted as a publisher for other parties to help them out with their success on the platform. However once the Amiga died out, they went back to being just another developer maintaining a presence on the PC with the help of other publishers.
Fast-forward to now, when thanks to digital distribution Team17 is back to being their own man, and now they've decided it's time to return to the publishing business as well. The first title under their mantle is Light, an indie stealth infiltration game currently making its rounds through Greenlight. We'll be featuring these titles here just like any other Team17 game.
