Greetings to all the Socrched 3D community,
I’m a collaborator of an Italian PC gaming magazine, The Games Machine (website: http://www.tgmonline.it). I take care of the freeware section of the cover DVD, choosing some games to be highlighted every month.
I’m glad to let you know that I decided to take Scorched 3D for one of the next DVDs of the magazine – maybe for the December issue already.
I really appreciated the overall quality of the game: excellent graphics, very configurable, and for once the concept of a 2D game was greatly transferred in a 3D environment.
Congratulations to the team for the excellent work.

We’ve been doing a lot of work on the graphics lately…. before you go to press ask for screenshots of the latest CVS version and the pictures will be a lot better!!!

Do you mean it’s better if I wait some time for a new and improved version to be released?October 21, 2003 at 1:35 pm #9723
Gendo: I think you should wait for v36, (Current is v35), the new version has MUCH improved graphics, it looks awesome, look at the top screenshots here: http://www.scorched3d.co.uk/screens.html

I’ll also take the chance to say that you are doing great team! But you must work on that game font 😳 It makes the game look worse than it is. Try a more compact one that is less tall..
It’s also in my opinion that this should be a $10 or so shareware game, I and a lot of people would buy it, and if someone piracies it, so be it, it’s not like it is lost revenue, because the people who do that would never buy it in the first place. You guys deserve some reward for this other than the satisfaction of all the players 🙂
At least put up a donate link 🙂October 21, 2003 at 2:07 pm #9725

New versions will almost always be better. Its always the same problem in life, get it now or wait for the next better version. You can end up waiting forever 🙂
But you must work on that game font
The fonts are customizable, just needs a bitmap with all the letters in it.
Or if you have a truetype font that you would prefer, mail it and I will have a look at it.
At least put up a donate link
We recently have, it is at the bottom of the page. 🙂October 21, 2003 at 3:05 pm #9726
I know you don’t have deadlines, but when you think V36 will be released?December 15, 2003 at 8:16 pm #9727
I’m glad that I waited. I’m downloading and reading in the meanwhile, and I’m impressed at how much improvements you did from the previous version. Since I’ll go abroad within a week for Christmas vacations, I think I’ll review the game before then, so to have it in the DVD within the next few months 🙂
Congratulations for all you work.December 15, 2003 at 8:51 pm #9728
Thanks dude, I look forward to reading about it 🙂 any chance of a copy?
Its gradually getting there :).December 23, 2003 at 5:16 am #9729
Hey, you might want to send this game off to PC Gamer magazine. Its weird playing this game for free… guess im not used to good games being free.December 24, 2003 at 12:28 pm #9730
Sounds like a good idea, any idea of how I should contact pc gamer?
The game has been on lots of CDs in Europe, USA, Japan etc. but I don’t know of one in the UK. That is what I really want since I am based here.January 2, 2004 at 3:50 am #9731
