EMR 3.0 released
ExcaliburWorld Software and the Marathon Map Makers Guild have released Excalibur: Morgana's Revenge 3.0 (EMR) for Mac OS X, the release candidate for the first-person shooter game. The latest release is built upon the Aleph One Open Source engine to bring the title to Mac OS X as well as Microsoft Windows and Linux. Excalibur: Morgana's Revenge features new maps, high resolution textures and landscapes, an entirely new set of weapons, new monsters as well as allies, and new scenery. The game offers 16-bit sounds, original music, and a carefully woven story line that transcends time, according to the developers. "EMR starts where Devil in a Blue Dress left off. As a Federation Marine resting after your last mission, you start aboard the exploration class Starship Kronos where you learn that your real mission has yet to begin! You are re-acquainted with the AI Merlin, who introduces you to Kronos time traveling technology, and reveals your new mission: to save mankind from the clutches of Morgana and her minions." The game is available for free as a digital download (specific system requirements were unavailable).
