A German Outcast fansite has conducted an interview with a former member of Appeal (who wishes to remain anonymous). In it, the former employee explains why the company went bankrupt and reveals that the Outcast 2 project was not going well to begin with. Progress was slow and the game was becoming more arcade-style to satisfy console gamers -- against the team's wishes. Outcast 2 was going to have much less puzzles and dialogues than its predecessor. When eventually the team became unmotivated to continue, and Infogrames neglected to transfer money they owed to Appeal, the studio's downfall became inevitable.

Eye of the Kraken the point'n'click adventure from Absurdus, was released today and can now be bought from Absurdus' homepage.

Eye of the Kraken puts you in the role of Abdullah, a man who will have to discover which of the suspicious and anachronical passengers has stolen the Eye of the Kraken. This is a very important task for if the thief makes it to the Island, it will be possible for him to awake the Great Kraken and then rule the world. And that would be bad.

Read more over at Absurdus' homepage.

Blue's News has reported on a rumour (started by Outcast fan-site Adelpha.de) that Appeal, developers of the action/adventure game, Outcast, closed their doors on the 2nd of August after filing for backruptcy. This could mean the end of Outcast II, which was confirmed as being in development some time ago (although it had since been put on the back burner while another project was being completed).

Keep in mind that this is nothing more than a rumour at this point--we'll have more information as it's available.

Four Fat Chicks' Mike Phillips has reviewed Hitchcock: The Final Cut, giving it a rating of...well, he actually had trouble settling on a final rating, opting for a "?" instead. Most telling is the following statement, made near the end of the article: "Playing The Final Cut was a similar experience to eating my Aunt Thelma's meatloaf. It's palatable but nothing to rave over."
