Armado coming in Oct.
Several veteran game developers have come together to form a new company called Tricky Software. The company has created a new, cross-platform game engine that will be used for its first game: Armado is an arcade-style game follows Armado, an Armadillo, in a quest through a world filled with dense forests and volcanic mountains. Along the way, resistance will pop up and require the player to take action quickly or they may not survive. Tricky has tried to make this game viable for almost any age assuring that "there's something for everyone." The developers are looking for any feedback from the limited material available online. Mac OS X 10.2 or later running on a Power Mac G4 or better (including Intel-based Macs) is required. Armado is scheduled for release this October.
