PRODUCTIONS ANNOUNCES UPCOMING ATARI RELEASES
June 1, 1999
For immediate release:
ROCHESTER, MN -- Songbird
Productions is pleased to announce renewed support for Atari gaming
consoles in the form of new releases for the Jaguar and Lynx. Topping
off the list is Ponx for the Atari Lynx. Ponx brings the ball- and-paddle
classic that started it all to the Lynx. But this isn't your ordinary
game. Ponx features a number of options, such as multiple balls,
a Lynx controlled opponent with selectable AI, and more. Plus, in
a throwback to classic handheld gaming, play against a friend on
the same Lynx unit (no comlynx cable or second Ponx cartridge necessary!).
The target release date for Ponx is June 18, 1999, and the retail
price is $39.95. If you are interested in ordering Ponx, please
visit the Songbird Productions web page at http://songbird.atari.org.
Dealer inquiries welcome. Songbird Productions continues to make
significant progress on Protector, a fast-paced 2D bi-directional
shooter for the Jaguar. Anticipated release date is later in 1999.
In addition, Songbird Productions has licensed a number of unreleased
games from former Jaguar developers. The games licensed are: Soccer
Kid from Krisalis Software Ltd., Hyper Force from Visual Impact,
and Skyhammer from Rebellion. "Jaguar and Lynx fans have remained
highly supportive of Atari game consoles," said Carl Forhan, owner
of Songbird Productions. "I can't tell you how excited I am to have
licensed these games from their respective companies and know that
I will get them into gamers' hands in the coming months. This is
a great opportunity for Songbird Productions to help sustain the
Jaguar and Lynx into the next millennium." At press time, no release
dates had been set for any of the Jaguar products. All inquiries
on these products should be directed to Songbird Productions only.
