Jagged Alliance And UFO Online Betas Begin

Everybody loves a remake!
It seems like turn-based strategy was the pupal stage leading to the emergence of beautiful MMO butterflies for Jagged Alliance and UFO: Online, who are now poking their mandibles out of their coccoon in the form of beta sign-ups.

Which would make you the entomologists, prodding at the newly emerging life form from their development cocoon. If you manage to get on the beta that is. We’ve only been given brief glimpses of each game, but there’s no harm in joining the testing process to see for yourselves. UFO’s beta launches today and Jagged Alliance’s will follow just a few days later.

    So. Many. Spelling mistakes. And is it it not Pupal?

    That screenshot looks amazing in a way I’m confused by… I don’t mean graphically or anything quantifiable, but it draws me in.

    I’ve got into UFO beta. Graphics looks atmospheric, camera is better than good. Half the game is in german (including EULA, except the “I Agree” button ;) ). Controls seem unpolished/unintuitive so far. Gameplay… I don’t really know – as I’m that_kind_of_guy, I’ve ignored MMO aspect of the game and waded to the first mission solo, got slaughtered by aliens who seemingly escaped from fantasy RPG and stopped playing for now.

    These are the guys doing the new Shadowrun Online game, about which I’m rather more excited. This should give a good idea about the likely quality of that, though,

      It gets a bit confusing.

      Gamigo are mostly publishers, moving into production as well.

      Cliffhanger is making Shadowrun Online, and Jagged Alliance Online… Gamigo are publishing Jagged Alliance.

      Funatics seems to be the ones actually making UFO online (since they get listed in Gamigo’s “legal” section of their UFO website)

      As to Shadowrun Online, Gamigo don’t seem to have anything on their site, so I’m not sure if they’re even publishing it.

    Butterflies do not possess mandibles.
