May 20th - Star Wars 3 times w/in 24 hours!
What a crazy time the past couple of days have been!   I should have updated this page yesterday, but my sleeping schedule has been a mess since I saw STAR WARS Episode I: The Phantom Menace at 2 a.m. early Wednesday morning!  What a movie, what an experience!  400 people cheering in a packed theater!  I went to bed at 6 a.m., then got up and rushed to meet some other friends for a 2 p.m. showing, took a nap, then met my fiancee' for a 9 p.m. show!  I could see it 3 more times!   

I added 6 new cities to the Downloads section, and now my mailbox is empty.  Send any submissions of Cities after May 25th to Angel Monty's Monkey as I won't be at my computer very often.  Last minute preparations for my wedding next Saturday on May 29th!  Then I'm off to the sunny island of St. Lucia until June 8th!

May 18th - Monty's ready to receive again!
A couple of days back you'll recall that Angel Monty's Monkey was having problems with his email...Well, those problems have thankfully now evaporated, so you can once again send him your scenarios in the confidence that they will reach him intact.

I won't be updating here for the next two days - last minute exam revision means that I can't be doing 3 sites every day.  However, I'll still be over at Pharaoh Heaven if you get rodent withdrawl symptoms <g>.  I've asked Angel Draco to do the newsieing over here for tomorrow and Thursday, but I haven't heard back from him.  Perhaps he's too busy getting ready for his wedding;).  Not having any last minute rethinks, I take it Drac;)?  Oh, speaking of Pharaoh, head over to PH for some cool news from SpineMan, one of the lucky, lucky guys who went to E3.  It's looking good!

May 17th NEWSFLASH!!!   C3 demo for the Mac is out!
Yup, it's true!  For all of our Mac visitors (and I know that we do have some), today is the day that you've been waiting for!   The Mac demo of Caesar III is now available, so you can see what all the fun is about.  Get it here, all 18.9 Megs of it!  You'll have to wait for a while before the full version is released, however - it's being unveiled at the Macworld Expo in New York between 20th and 23rd July.   Still, gives you a chance of getting real good at the first few scenarios before you get the full game, no?  More information about that here.

May 17th - What's new at Pharaoh Heaven?
Ooh!  It's a temple!

E3 information should be wnging its way to me from the Angels who were present (I've spoken to Omnivac and he said that Pharaoh looked absolutely amazing) within the next few days.  However, I've posted the 2 in-game screenshots that we have so far (even though they are both mockups, and therefore don't necessarily accurately reflect real life game situations), as well as adding a load of other stuff.  So, head over there and check it out (oh, and don't forget to vote in the brand new poll either;))

-- More Pharaoh screenshots will be appearing within the next
few weeks...and these'll be from the alpha version!!

Special delivery from CaesarExpress in the downloads section!   Angel Monty's Monkey has added another 9 scenarios for you to enjoy!  Here's a bit more from MM:

Special note: Hotmail has recently been giving me problems. (Read: I can't access it.) So, if you've sent something to me since about the 13th of May, I haven't been able to access it yet. If this problem persists, I'll publicize another way to send things to me. For those of you that send things to my heavengames address, that merely forwards to my hotmail address, so anything sent there will not have been received either. Again, more news in a couple of days.

While you're here, why not browse the Game Info section, newly updated by Angel Jayhawk.  Oh, and there's loads more to come too - get those binoculars out and watch out for the hawk!

May 15th - C3 pipped at the post
It's not true to say that E3 is totally devoid of Caesar III-related news.  However, it's sad news that I have to report today.   C3 lost out to Sid Meier's Alpha Centauri if the Best Strategy Game Of The Year category in the AIAS awards.  Get the full story here.

On a happier note, I'm pleased to report that the results for the Olympic event known as Bononia have been announced.  Here they are:

1st Zack Caophil
2nd MartyParty
3rd Emperor Tomek

More information on that here.   Congratulations, guys!
