Don’t worry; we’ll grow out of it soon. Today, we have news of a rather interesting little project. The being known at Kry10 has suggested a rather good idea – setting up some form of chatroom dedicated to playing the Red Dwarf Roleplaying Game. If you’re interested, contact him at email@example.com. And if you have any Red Dwarf stuff you want to promote, or have seen any news we haven’t spotted, send us an e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Meanwhile, on the official site, the Red Dwarf mobile game Simulants’ Revenge appears to be still “Coming Soon”, despite it being past Monday 23rd June; the alleged launch date. The logo for it is still greyed out, and if you read the Instructions, and click on the Logos or Games links (which are supposed to give you a page telling you how to download the items on your phone), it gives you nothing – the links are currently dead. No doubt this is just a minor delay, however. Neither Ian or I have got access to a funky enough phone to play the game, so when it does arrive, if anyone wants to send us in a review (even if it’s just a short one) we’d be eternally grateful.
As for site news, we’ve taken down the Schedule section. We failed utterly. It was always out of date, and took far too much of our time that would be better spent doing other things on the site. However, you will have noticed above that we’ve added a little bit telling you the next UK showing of Dwarf; we’ll keep that up to date, promise. And we’ll tell you in the main news articles if we’ve spotted anything interesting coming up. Don’t miss the complete run of Series 2, starting Thursday 26th – yes, I know you all have the DVDs, but any excuse, eh? Content update later in the week; and we’ll update you before then if Simulants’ Revenge goes live.
UPDATE: Simulants’ Revenge is now up; and we should have a review of it in the next few days. Don’t forget the cool Logos as well – they look great fun, but again, some of them use the Re-mastered version of the ship, which is just awful. I’m getting seriously pissed off that nearly all mechandise includes this; it’s really, really, really bad, and it’s just not in the spirit of the original shows. Why change something that was so beautiful into the current monstrosity? Admittedly, the budget problems of VIII forced them to use the CGI version of the ship, but that doesn’t mean it has to be plastered all over merchandise…
