Las Vegas, NV - Apilent Software released the hotly anticipated
box for Warped Bunny: Apocalypso. A spokesperson also announced
that the software is expected to be released in 18 months, a
fully functional version will be available in 24 months and the game
will be obsolete because of technical advances in 10 months.
Reviews for the
sofware package were overwhelmingly positive. "The box
has awesome graphics," said Ronald Freeman of DailyRadar.com. "The
simulated screen shots on the back of the package rival anything
on the market today. The company rep told me that game play
would be 'Fantastic!' that's all I needed to hear. Thumbs UP!"
"We saw pictures of developers working at their computers that
would knock your socks off," said GameSpot's Lance Walworth. "This
is some sturdy paperboard, and some of the shiniest shrink wrap I've
ever seen. It's only May but I think 'Game of the Year' honors
may be headed Apilent's way."
Apilent has a strict policy of not sending pre-release copies to
reviewers. Apilent's Director of Marketing Barbara Klaus explains, "We're
not going to screw over our dedicated fans, so we released the box
to the stores first. The reviewers can pay for their own just
like everyone else. To give the box added realism, however,
we assumed that Daily Radar would say 'Fantastic!' in their review
and that GameSpot would give it a 9 out of 10. Imagine our
chagrin when they gave it a 9.5!"

Game developers started selling empty boxes earlier this year in
an effort to satisfy rabid gamer's desire for new titles. Not everyone
was pleased with the latest release. "I thought the box
was pretty light so I asked the clerk if this was some demo box that
they just set out on the shelf, but he said that was all they had. I
get home and all their is in the box is this note that says 'Coming
in 2003, (we hope)'. I was pissed. At least Myst 4 had
an AOL CD in the box."
Gamers also got another bit of good news when RhombusSoft announced
that the beta release of their box for Deathageddon Crematorium 10
would be available in March of 2002.
