Hey folks, after quite the absence, I'm back.......

We're all very happy about the PC Gamer review! They gave us an "excellent" rating...82%!

I'd like you all to know that we've released a patch for Atomic Mutant!

It's available at The Atomic Mutant Website on the last page of the book. It's only about 3MB.

It contains a few bug fixes and compatability fixes for different video cards. (Jenny100, you're all set....!)

There's some differences in the way the puny humans behave, slight AI enhancement.

More importantly, there's a treat for people that have purchased the game. One of the most heard complaints was that the monster blocks
the view. Well, we've included some different camera views to address
that, and have some fun, too. Included are

-New "farther away and up" view that gives a new perspective and gets the monster out of the way...as requested...
-FIRST PERSON view. Look down upon your prey and SMASH!
-PUNY HUMAN THROW CAM. At first, this view looks an awful lot like the
default view. But, go pick up a soldier or civilian and give 'em a throw...see what happens....tee hee.

Thanks for all your support on this forum, and THANK YOU to everyone who has purchased the game.....!!

Thanks for the update info. Have to go get the patch. I thought the view angle on the monster was a problem at times, myself. I am definitely intrigued by the what the "puny human throw cam" improvement is like. laugh

You already sent me the small patch for the Matrox card, which worked great. Should I install this second patch over it or start with a fresh install (uninstall and reinstall) and then use the patch?

Jenny, I think you can just install this patch, shouldn't be a problem (and if it is, we'll fix it for ya!) How's that for a deal? smile

This patch makes a great game even better! laugh

Taking out planes with the FIRST PERSON EYE BLAST is evil fun. And PUNY HUMAN THROW CAM is even more evil. And even more fun. wink

The crazed programmers of Canopy Games now join that select group of whom it can be said..."They took away their stove and they became...deranged!"

OK, leave it to Mr. Lipid to come up with a pop culture reference that is both wholly appropriate and maddeningly obscure.... smile

I give. Where's that line from?

ozma.....good to meetcha Minneapolitan! You'd think that our hometown teams of Best Buy and Target would carry the game, but noooooooooo......
Your best chance is, believe it or not, at Wal Mart..they made a large order.

atomicmutant,

That silly line, which was originally "They took away his stove and he became...deranged," is actually a variation on wonderfully awful movie tagline copy.

I was heading south on I-94 some years ago and heard one of those overheated "They took away his (something or other) and he became (the title of the movie)."

It was at that moment that the idea of doing ridiculous movie taglines presented itself. Imagine, if you will, "They gave him back his beaker and he became...revialed" or "They took away his lamp and he became...delighted."

You get the idea. wink

By the way, there is film entitled Deranged, directed by the same guy who gave us the Porky's series and A Christmas Story: Bob Clark.

You are in for fun now Burpee, the Mutant site is almost as much fun as the game. Bewary - it has puny human cams all over the place. Join the strong - become one of us and rule the world BWAH-HA-HA-HA

Hmmm in honor of Mr. Lipid

They took away her tunes and she became...de-composed. laugh

Just have to check out the puny human cams...sounds like a hoot smile

Does this one work Mr. Lipid?

They took away her ORE and she saw it as IRON-Y.

Keep my day job, right?
