PR: Ambrosia releases Deimos Rising Press Rel
Rochester, NY -- December 6, 2001 -- Ambrosia Software, Inc. released today Deimos Rising, the much-anticipated sequel to the smash hit Mars Rising. Deimos Rising is a fast-action, smooth-scrolling, heart-stopping, arcade-style game that's sure to hyphenate your social life.

"We decided to wait a few years before releasing Deimos Rising," says Ambrosia's el Presidente, Andrew Welch, "so that Mac gamers would have plenty of time to purchase new keyboards and allow their old Mars Rising injuries time to heal." Well folks, the time is now!

This sequel is about revenge. And not yours. Mars Rising's big brother is here, and he's pissed off. David Wareing has once again crafted a masterpiece of twitch gaming bliss that combines killer graphics, sounds, music, and action into an experience that'll leave you breathless.

Read the rest of the article for the remainder of the press release...

Deimos Rising features gorgeous 16 bit graphics lovingly rendered with transparency, alpha masking, and motion blur into a whirlwind of pixelized chaos. If you thought the legions of enemies you faced on Mars were hectic, wait until you touch down on the menacing landscape of Deimos.

Deimos Rising captures the arcade experience perfectly, and it does so in a tight little 34mb bundle of joy that runs on Mac OS 8.6 or later -- and of course, it runs natively on Mac OS X as well.

Enough talk. Close your blinds. Order out for pizza. Take your phone off of the hook. You've got some serious playing to do.

OSX hint?

Since when is a game an OSX hint? Please don't go the way of ResExcellence where everyday's news has become a list of so-called press releases: "Check this out", "Check that out". No, I'm not. For software, I consult VersionTracker.com.

Disable the category...

In your Display Preferences settings, you can turn off the Press Release category by putting a checkmark next to the topic name. You won't see another announcement, regardless of how many are posted. That's the beauty of the database-driven site -- you control what you want to see (try that trick on any of the other news sites).

PR will never be a focus for the site (only 15 PR announcements out of 1,005 articles), but if I think something is of general interest to the readers, I'll probably post it.

If there's enough groundswell against Press Releases, I'd certainly consider dropping the category, but most of the feedback I've received on PR announcements has been positive. So if you hate 'em, let me know and if I hear enough negative responses, they'll be gone...
