Press Coverage and Reddit AMA Reminder

Posted by 5 Lives Studios (Creator)

We’ve had a few articles and interviews pop up about us we thought you might appreciate.

First up, Mike and Chris chat with PC Games Hardware about our choice of game engine among other topics. This interview is also available in German.

Brent has a few words to say about the Australian games industry on a piece in a local new site. The Brisbane Times.

Lastly Hodge over at TheHodgepodge.net has an excellent write up on Satellite Reign in which he pulls out an ancient quote about Mike from the game manual of the Amiga version of Syndicate. 

 “The first Syndicate conversion on the Amiga was slower than a dead snail. After much optimisation the speed improved considerably, and after Mike got his grubby paws on it our dreams were surpassed.”

AND DON’T FORGET!

We’ll be on Reddit for an AMA (Ask me Anything) on Wednesday, 10 July 2013 at 21:00 UTC/GMT. Don’t forget to check out this handy link to see when that is for your time zone.

So come along ask us ANYTHING!

We’ll be posting the direct link to it here when it’s up and running .

      @Richard, thanks for reminding me, Atlantis was soooo difficult. But after you survived the first onslaught it was ok. Damn that was a great game (except for the ending, which didn't exist).

      Hey, why not schedule the AMA with the mods of the subreddit? You might get even more exposure that way...

      I remember the last mission on syndicate (Atlantis?) on the Amiga and it slowed down painfully from about 10 seconds in. As soon as the carnage started =)
