Looks cool.  Interesting choice of splitting the screen side by side.

This is a very interesting looking game for the Nuon

Freefall 3050 is the worst Nuon game that I've played. Controls are sloppy and the camera always seems to pan to a useless or awkward angle. Not fun. The FMV intro is better than the game. :D

The VM Labs team was made up of 27 experienced engineers including:

Richard Miller (VP of technology at Atari from '89-'94, i seem to recal).

John Mathieson (aka the 'Father Of The Jaguar').

Greg laBrec (Ex-Sony)

Bill Rehbock (Ex-Sony), who was asked why leave Sony when Playstation was so succsessful and PS2 well underway in R+D?, to which he replied: 'They (VM Labs) knocked my socks off, i would'nt have left Sony unless this was a sure thing' (ahh, hindsight is a wonderful thing there Bill).

Other engineeers had experience on:the 3DO's original 'opera' chipset, Sinclair:spectrum+QL along with Ex-Apple engineers.

Bill Rehbock was an ex-Atari producer too, most of the VM Labs crew had worked for Atari in one way or another.

Great video and very informative. I have Iron Soldier 3 for it but no Nuon. Was looking to buy one a decade ago but never did. It's too bad it's such a bad investment. Would love to play some Tempest 3000.
Looked around for an emulator and found the Nuance but it's reported to be slow yet still being actively worked on. That's probably the only way most will ever be able to enjoy T3K.

Looks like the best way to enjoy TK3 will be through emulation...when it is done right.  Investing money on the console itself doesn't seem like a good idea.
