Omega Race 2009: Remake of the month

Not only do I get a mention in the latest issue of Retro Gamer Magazine,
but Omega Race 2009 is reviewed and awarded “Remake of the month“.

Me=happy. 🙂

Here’s a small scan of the article (I’m not posting the whole article as I don’t want to step on anyones toes).

Omega Race races ahead.

Meanwhile I’m getting ready for my vacation tomorrow – 2 weeks away from work. I need that. I’m not going anywhere though – just hoping for 2 weeks of rain so I don’t have to feel bad about sitting in front of the computer. 😀  One of my plans are to see if I can bang Psycho Pigs into shape by rewriting the AI in (again). I’ll let you know how it goes. 🙂

Completed: Omega Race 2009

Yes, after 3½ week I’ve finally finished Omega Race 2009.

I think it turned out even better than I’d hoped for and I hope you will all enjoy it too.

Please give me some feedback and tell me what you think of it – is it too easy, too hard, too shiny, too pretty or too-something-else?

Update: May 22th 2009. Just 12 hours after original release I’ve updated to v1.1. This version is a lot easier.
If you have already downloaded the game then download it again if you want it to be less challenging.
I’m also working on a version 1.2. This will appear soon and have many more tweaks and features.

It’s been a fun little distraction from Psycho Pigs UXB, which I’ve been working on for 3 months now, but now it’s time to continue working on that game.
