    It wasnt that long ago that the Llamas were being talked about on here and now a new Jeff Minter games is on the way!!!

    Lionhead Studios and Jeff Minter have today announced that they are collaborating on Unity--a kaleidoscopic shooter in which music will play in an integral part. Gameplay information is sketchy at this time, and today's press release simply describes Unity as a "fabulous journey through a succession of beautiful abstract 3D spaces." From what little we know of the game, it seems that it would perhaps best be compared to UGA's Rez, but given the people involved in its development it's safe to assume that Unity will be nothing if not completely original.

    I'll say what I said in the Gamecube thread going right now:

    Can I give my money over now or do I have to wait for the release?[​IMG]

    EDIT: Man now I'm in the mood to play Tempest (goes to find Jaguar).

    That Jeff was working on a 'Cube game has been a poorly-kept secret for a few months over at the Llamasoft forums. When I was snooping around a while back, Jeff never confirmed anything other than a nextgen console game, but certain clues pretty much eliminated the other two systems.

    Nintendo and Lionhead will require substantial playtesting and tweaking. Defender 2K had little playtesting, and T3K was pretty much only tested by Jeff. Minter is a unique (and excellent) coder and designer, and given the proper management, I expect this game to be un-friggin-believable.

    I only wish there was a tentative release date.
