Simon 3d now in 2d!


Ah, those Germans, wonderful people, despite their apparent lack of humor. Then again, I do remember reading a pretty funny German book, that was published back in the swinging '30s. Dr. med. Hiob Praetorius (by Curt Goetz) it was called, and was filled with Sherlock Holmes jokes, but I digress. Again.


This post's point is that a new German independent development team, the aptly named Simtology group, has just released a most promising Simon The Sorcerer III (3, in case you were wondering) demo-teaser-thingy. It's just an animation featuring the opening sequence of Simon 3D in glorious 2d pixelated graphics, and it's quite in German, but definitely worth a look.

Here's hoping hoping they manage to finish their project. Everyone raise your horns and finish your beer! Now, go have a look at Simtology's website. It's right there.
