Well, as you guys know, it's been a long time since I released a new game. The reason for this is not because I've lost motivation to make new games, or don't want to do it anymore. I just recently switched to Ubuntu from Windows. Now when I say "switch", I mean I switched every computer I have access to. None of the computer monitors here will give you a desktop with a taskbar and Start menu at the bottom. I made the switch because I didn't want to deal with viruses and blue screens anymore, and so far it's been a painless ride. The only difficulty is I can't get our game creation software to run on it, because it's Windows-only software. So I'm trying right now to figure out a way to run our familiar game creation software in Ubuntu in a non-buggy state.
So for all those who think I'm retiring in game development, you're wrong. The fact of the matter is, making games is still my passion, and I actually have a whole backlog of games that I want to make in my head. And just for those who are REALLY curious, I will tell you that the first game I work on next will indeed be a remake of the first School of Torture. Yes, that's right. I don't really want to spoil anything right now, but let's just say, it's going to be an amazing game. I'm going to combine everything I know about game design with everything that I remember from the original School of Torture game. I'm going to say it right now though, it will not be in 3D. But I hope sometime I get to make another 3D game again.
Whew.... well this was a long update. I actually had to rework the html of this text box to allow a scroll bar especially for this one entry. xDDD Anyway, I will post back probably soon, once I've managed to get a stable environment working for our game creation software. At that point, I will start approaching the School of Torture remake. Stay tuned for that, and have a great day.

As you all can see, we've decided to completely re-design the website from scratch, making this the third iteration of megatoxic.com. Our goal as of right now is to completely re-build the entire website with a much more streamlined, cleaner look, and fix all broken links that creeped in over the years. The navigation buttons are now located to the left, and are larger and more touch-screen friendly. Every section will soon be re-polished, and it should all be done by the end of the month, if we're successful. Hope you guys enjoy the brand new layout, and I'll keep you posted on further updates as progress goes on.
Just to bring you up to speed with what's been happening since 9/19/05, High Alacrity unfortunately was going through major development difficulties and it was decided by the team for the project to be cancelled. However, the School of Torture 7 is NOT going to be cancelled, but will see a major delay in progress for about a year and a half. A new project, titled Game Catcher 2, is in the works, and has seen a nice smooth development so far. =)
By this weekend, the website should be completely finished-- all links working, including the ones that were never born on the right column over there. >_>
Well, that's about the long and short of it all. lol. Let's see how things turn out from here on in.
Catch ya lata!
This website will be going through some major overhauls over the next few weeks, as I am trying to get everything back in order with all the downloads and pages I have to manage. Note that the website's layout may very well change over time, as it evolves, but for now, I just want it so everything is accessable despite looks.
The links to this site are slowly coming along. You can now access the new Games page. Every game now will have its own screenshots of its actual gameplay. Also, I will be putting up a few extra pages for the bigger projects that can only be obtained on CD, like the Strange X-50. *Sighhh...........* boy do I have alot of work to do...
You will probably notice that the only page working is this one. That's because I've just started putting the website together since last night. But don't worry. I'll have alot of good time this weekend and before you know it, everything will be working again.
Well, I hope everyone likes the new design, and I'll see you soon!!!
