DRAGON’S LAIR 3-D TO DEBUT EXCLUSIVELY AT CLASSIC LIGAZ888 GAMING EXPO

CGE Services Corp. in cooperation with Dragonstone Software has announced that Dragon’s Lair 3-D, one of the industry’s most eagerly anticipated software titles, is set to debut at Classic Gaming Expo 2001.

 

CGE Services Corp. in cooperation with Dragonstone Software has announced that Dragon’s Lair 3-D, one of the industry’s most eagerly anticipated software titles, is set to debut at Classic Gaming Expo 2001.

 

Based on the record-shattering Dragon’s Lair arcade game which was released in 1983, Dragon’s Lair 3-D is poised to take the videogame industry by storm just as its’ predecessor did. The original game, created by Don Bluth, Rick Dyer, Gary Goldman, and John Pomeroy, has endured for 18 years as one of the most recognizable arcade games ever. In addition to holding the honor of being the world’s first commercially successful laser-disc arcade machine, Dragon’s Lair is one of three games on display in the Smithsonian Institute, the other two being Pong and Pac-Man.

 

The games’ creators have formed Dragon’s Lair LLC. as well as Dragonstone Software, a development house ready to bring out top quality software titles for the PC, Mac, PS2, and X-Box platforms. Dragon’s Lair 3-D will be the first release and players will again assume the role of the brave knight, Dirk the Daring, as he fights to save princess Daphne. “With our current 3-D technology, we can give the player complete control over Dirk, with the ability to fully explore the castle in his quest to rescue the princess,” states Rick Dyer, one of the creators of the original Dragon’s Lair game. “In Dragon’s Lair 3-D we take the player on an adventurous trek via a technically innovative 3-D game that will impress both the reminiscing and modern hard core gamer.”

 

Dyer, and fellow Dragon’s Lair creator, John Pomeroy, plan to be on hand to demonstrate the game at Classic Gaming Expo. Although shown in the very early stages of development at the 2000 E-3 show, the game was noticeably absent from this year’s line-up. Notes Dyer, “By debuting our product exclusively at Classic Ligaz888 Gaming Expo, we have the best of both worlds. In addition to previewing the game to the media, we can also present it to our potential customers.”

 

Aside from the preview of Dragon’s Lair 3-D, Dyer and Pomeroy have created a video presentation that will involve tons of footage from their archives. Several of the video highlights include: Cutting-room floor scenes from the original Dragon’s Lair game, behind-the-scenes footage of the making of Dragon’s Lair 3-D, early coverage of the original game, and possibly some scenes from the upcoming Dragon’s Lair movie.

 

Pomeroy, a veteran animator at Disney, also plans to show some of his latest accomplishments including his work from the hit movie Atlantis, as well as the upcoming film, Treasure Planet. Additionally, Pomeroy and Dyer have donated two autographed animation cells, one from Atlantis and one from the original Dragon’s Lair, as prizes for Classic Gaming Expo. The cells, which are valued at over one thousand dollars each, will be

given away during the show. The Dragon’s Lair 3-D preview and video presentations are scheduled to take place at 1pm. On Saturday, August 11th in the Classic Gaming Expo Keynote Room. For more information visit: http://www.cgexpo.com or send email to: e-mail protected from spam bots
