Inferiors July 1st, 1995
The left-over coder from Imagina that didn't loose himself into LSD worlds. Now back on the Falcon with sevreal projects on the go! One of which is a Defender clone (inspired by Jeff Minters update of Defender) called Stargate. Stargate will feature wild action, 1vbl (60fps) screenupdates all the time. No slowdown at any times guarenteed, cool sound, rendered, handdrawn and perhaps even digitzed 65536- colour 16bit-truecolour graphics! One to defenitly look out for.
 
Unique Development Sweden July 1st, 1995
Unique Development Sweden, seems now to have totally abandoned the Atari market, after two great games. This is a big loss to the Atari STe/Falcon games market since both Obsession and Substation was either promised or rumoured to be done in a highclass Falcon only version. Bad luck all gamers, Unique is off.
 
Frontier Software July 1st, 1995
which has many new Falcon projects on the go. First out was Digital Tracker, which I suppose hasn't missed your attention. Second release seem right now to be a game from EKO called H2O.

Later on we can expect releases as:
Exodus - A Doom clone for the Falcon in Truecolour. Promises 320*160 1*1-pixelsize window updating at 3 50hz VBLs. Featuring staircases and other nice things.

Image Studio - pattern and texture generator for Falcon. As it sounds from Frontier, this will be a great piece of software.

Wotanoid - A Asteroids clone in Truecolour from EKO. Fully rendered graphics and full framrate.
Start It - A program in the tracks of Seletric and let'em fly (sounds almost like a Freedom copy).
 
Dune July 1st, 1995
Dune has been awfully quiet the last year. No release, or contribution to any demo partys. However, Dune are now planning a new Falcon demo for release at the Aggressive Party 2. The lack of movements from Dune the last time is mainly because their head' coder EvilMetal since a year back has started a new Atari software firm called Frontier Software.

In accelerated mode, the 20mhz STRAM-BUS enables the VIDEL to be clocked at 40mhz in Truecolour, and giving 640*480 truecolour display with VGA-MS monitors.
