TV was published by 3D Realms but its two sequels were published by Microsoft. Does anyone know if they still hold the rights to those games?
Also, I played Fury3 and Hellbender but never got to play Terminal Velocity? Is it at least as good as Fury3?
It goes like this:
Terminal Velocity when released was significant for it's technical achievements. MS where just started to push DirectX, so they used their HugePilesOfCash to get Terminal Velocity remade using DirectX. The result was Fury3 which:
- Did not support as high resulution
- Only ran in Windows 95 (at the time everyone would exit Windows to run games)
- Did not support multiplayer
The game play is exactly the same, you could consider Fury3 a Terminal Velocity expansion which dropped engine features.
Hellbender, while a sequel to Fury3, played completely differently and ruined the point of the game, in my opinion.
