Pretty cool to see it all mapped out!

- We’ll continue to keep our website, Facebook, and Twitter updated - including the biweekly Amoebattle updates
- Project 3 is completely done and is already in the first party submission queue (for one of the versions) - we’re just waiting for the ok to make the official announcement
Thanks to everyone for your support- we hope you’ll continue playing our games, and we look forward to seeing what this next part of the journey has in store!
News: Amoebattle Delayed to 2012; Project 3 to Be Revealed Soon
We’ve decided to delay the release of Amoebattle, Intrinsic Games’ upcoming microscopic RTS for Nintendo’s DSiWare/eShop, to 2012. We hit some major development hurdles that delayed the production; rather than rush the game at the cost of the game’s overall quality, fun, and value, we are delaying the release of the game to 2012. We’re also changing weekly updates to biweekly updates. Thanks to all the fans for your support, and we hope you continue checking in on new Amoebattle info!
We’re also getting ready to reveal Project 3, and we’re really excited about it. It’s been getting a terrific response from everyone we’ve been showing the game to, so be on the lookout for the reveal of it very soon!
Check out the Amoebattle Banner on Cubed3! You might have to refresh a few times on the Cubed3 site to see it since it’s part of the current rotation of banners. Thanks to the Cubed3 folks for putting it up!
