Songbird Productions Questions Needed

Songbird Productions have agreed to do an interview with us..

Songbird Productions was founded in 1999 by well-known Atari fan and hobby developer Carl Forhan to develop and publish games for Atari consoles, primarily the Lynx and Jaguar.

Post your questions here.

Would like to get this sent by Monday morning 2 July.

Cheers

Q. Can you tell us what the status is of the Lynx version of Ultra Vortek?

Q. A few years back when you released Total Carnage you hinted that Midway might have had more Jaguar hidden away. I have heard rumours of Dactyl Joust and Mortal Kombat 3, any more information?

Q. I love Megapak 1 for the Lynx, any plans for a Megapak 2?

Q.  Can you give us a hint of what to next expect from Songbird?

Q: what is the hardest element or problem you have found in jaguar game development to overcome ?

Q: what software is used when creating sprites or 3d polygon graphics, is it a time consuming progress ?

1) More and more Lynx games are coming out from other 3rd party indies, Songbird has slowed down in production of Lynx games over the last few years, have your Lynx projects been put on indefinite hold? or are there plans to revive and release them in the next few years?

2) We're you impressed with Zaku the game as a Lynx fan firstly? and secondly as a producer, the professional way the cartridge was made to be as close to an original as possible?

3) What's your best and worst selling Lynx title?
