    I just got my MAXIMUN PC magizine for Jan, and lo and behold on the CD included in it under the catagory the very best in open source was a SCORCHED EARTH install program. The review said nothing but good things and with the program included hopefully this will bring in more players.

    Yet another highlite of your masterpiece Gavin!!!! 😀

    Well, I have never read the magazine (I can’t read), but it’s good to hear of that, Spyrer. 🙂

    ‘grats, Gavin. *clink*

    Just wanted to add my two cents.. I played the original scorched earth back in my high school days and was just recently wondering what ever became of it. I then picked up Maximum PC (My local gas station doesn’t usually carry computer mags) for a read and I nearly flipped when I saw this was included in the CD..

    Anyways, just want to pass on Kudos to the excellent work done on the game. You managed to keep the original feel of the game while at the same time modernizing it!

    Again, thank you for making this game available to everyone just as the original was! I look forward to many happy hours playing.

    That’s really cool that a Mag included this game (even if it has happened before) and is introducing it to more people… If the publishers/editors of the mag ever read this, many thanks.

    Someone should make a Publicity section in the wiki and include all the publicity Scorched has gotten from websites and mags it has been included in.

    Yeah, I was thinking about that. I should perhaps try and dig out all of the permission emails that have been requested from me (permission to include game in magazine etc.).

    That would be cool but that would sound like it’d take some work to fish out. You’ve probably gotten lots of emails over the years.

    [03 Apr 07 20:03] * Ron * Hullo. I’m writing a story about games for PC World, and I’m looking for someone who can give permission for PC World to offer Scorched for download.
    [03 Apr 07 20:04] * Thrax * Scorched3D is a Free opensource game, it’s shared publicly from the home-site and thru Source-Forge.
    [03 Apr 07 20:04] * Ron * Does that mean PC World can post it on its own site?
    [03 Apr 07 20:04] * Thrax * as long as the version you host matched the latest releases for whatever OS. (Many),
    [03 Apr 07 20:04] * Ron * That’s a deal. Are you the developer?
    [03 Apr 07 20:05] * Thrax * i am a side programmer, i make the Mods for the game. not the game itself.
    [03 Apr 07 20:05] * Thrax * i am part of the development team mostly for testing and finding bugs
    [03 Apr 07 20:05] * Ron * I know my editor will ask. Who is the developer and do you have an email adress?
    [03 Apr 07 20:06] * Thrax * if you got here from the Forum’s Java Chat, the data is all there. The Game’s Developer is Gavin Camp, and his links are all on the forums
    [03 Apr 07 20:07] * Ron * Uh, I’m not too sure how I got here. I think I came from the home page. But I’ll take a look at the forum for the information I need. Thanks, Thrax. Nice game. Ron White
    [03 Apr 07 20:08] * Thrax * try it out some day.
    [03 Apr 07 20:09] * Ron * Oh, I spend most of the day play it. Reminds me of an early Worms game but much more room for development. Must go. Deadline’s beakoning. bye and thanks again.

    apparently we’ve made it onto PC-Worlds radar too, a long-standing PC enthusiests magazine!

    He says he plays it eh? I wonder if he uses chutes? Anyway, the more the merrier. Hopefully one day, 2 servers of 12 in each will be waaaay too little to supply the demand.
