Centron3D a new Amiga game in the works

Hi Guys, Just letting everyone know that a new Amiga game called Centron 3D is now in developed for the Commodore Amiga.


The developers RPC-Games based in Austrialia were also producing this for the Atari 8-bit platform but suspended the devlopment due to the ridicule it received on another forum, but its worth a mention here, here's what they had to say

"we've only just started so probably be ready in a month or 2. More info is on our website www.rpcgames.com.au "

Here's a glance at the title screen and in HAM mode too



Pete
Manager
RPC-Games!

Lets just say it didn't get ridicule for no reason...Do your own research, I'm also an Amiga person but you really really need to read what this dev did or should I say didn't do and also read their replies..

And I see Pete has made a stunning comeback, he apparently had a chest infection as of the 7th and was laid up unable to work...

Trust me, its a corker read..

Many of us supported them through all their fantastic claims. Then when release day came they canceled the game because of some mostly minor criticism. I agree with McLane. Do your own research. It was a troll for the ages.

Strange, yesterday I send news of a new Spanish game for Amiga 3x 4x and Mos, and have rejected.

You will know ...

It means you may never seen the game anyway..

I don't want to bash a dev but the dealings we had with him on the 8bit forum left even the most hardened supporters and genuine devs just annoyed and disappointed about the whole thing.

It was announced with a big hoo hah and then we eventually got the odd mock up screen shot that apparently used a new super mode that didn't flicker, a mode some our most talented devs could sort of recreate but not without the flicker.

We were told it did not flicker...(it did he admitted later)

With less than a few weeks to release there were no in game screen shots so we begged / asked / take it how you like for in game stuff, 23 shots were then posted, the problem was that it was an identical screen shot with only the background changed, we are talking pixel perfect bar the background.

So we asked for a demo we could test on real hardware or youtube video, no demo was provided but a youtube video was posted but again it was not in game and only a main sprite was moving, to many of us it looked mock up because despite being less than a week to launch no one was shown the game running and this was a buyable game.

Much doubt was given to if the game existed and on the day of release it was withdrawn on the basis it had got to much negative comments by us. He and another so called worker asked us to all apologise and it would be released, many including me who was targeted as a main 'conspirator' by RPC did offer apologies if we had been rude but the game is still removed and now it seems its your turn.

Please please do not take my word for it, look around for Centron 3D threads as I'm not here to publicise another forum that I'm ALSO a member of. When you find it read the few threads including the last one and I think you'll agree that we were on the large part VERY supportive even when it was starting to be clear there was an issue..

Again, don't take my word, look and read, we as on here have some wonderful freeware devs and even folks like on the C64 who sell fantastic cheap new games, we really support our devs 100% as does any platform these days that is retro.

I can only hope this does not turn into a carbon copy of what happened with us, I love all my fave formats (Atari 8bit, C64 and Amiga computer wise).

Jesus wept, who the hell designed THAT title screen?

"Here son, cobble some pictures together for me will ya?"

A DeLorean, A planet, An astronaut, a worryingly happy looking rainbow cloud and a shiny red ball.

And the name........ Centron......is it a new type of connector for peripherals? A tablet to beat heart burn?

Is this actually Serious?


EDIT: Apparently it IS serious...... what? And whats that nonsense about Atariage forum? And where the fuck was the spell checker in all of that?!? .... and... WTF?!?!!?

Happy to see a new game in developement...
I'm waiting to see graphics in game.
I wish you the best.
ps: but that's true, the title screen could be better...Perhaps it's just a picture you did in a hurry to give us the good news.

Just read through the whole thread on the AtariAge forum as well as looking closely at the RPC webpage. There is no game, that much is quite obvious. Don't let him turn this thread in-to the same as the one on there, please. We have enough "accidental" let downs in the Amiga world without embracing one that's a deliberate wind up.

Judging by the title page alone, it's not looking good. Still, they say you shouldn't judge a book by its cover, but in this case I`m willing too. Smells iffy to me.

The Atari one is even worse. Looks like an ANSI you'd see when logging onto a BBS
