Software News : The Christmas BOH Under The Tree RELOADED

Campobasso, Italy - December 14, 2009

A week after the beginning of The Christmas BOH Under The Tree offer, given the requests received from less lucky countries, given the way sales have increased and given the fact that the author and the publisher want more and more customers to be able to enjoy the full, physical product, the offer is pushed even further:

The price of the boxed version of BOH is set to exactly that of the digital version - a shockingly low EUR 7.50*!

...... Read more below

Those who bought the digital version will be entitled to receive the physical package at home by paying just the postal expenses*
Getting BOH has never been and will never be so convenient: hurry up, the offer will last only until January 6, 2010!

*excluding VAT


About BOH:

BOH is an original, retro-flavoured game of exploration and action.
You move in claustrophobic, traps-packed, mind-boggling battlefields searching for the Evil Masters, who throw countless enemies at you until you discover and face them in the final battle. Although your quests are made slightly less hard by the bonuses and power-ups scattered all around, carrying out the missions demands lots of concentration and quick reflexes.

With BOH the fun never ends: new missions can be added anytime and you can even create your own! And, as if that was not enough, you can also customize entirely its audio-visual aspect!
BOH has been created with lots of passion and care to offer, with its oldschool style, a fascinatingly different videogaming experience.

To learn more about BOH, please surf to the official website at www.bohthegame.com.

I guess if I wait another couple of weeks, you'll be paying me to take it....

Naaah, don't count on that: as said in the press release, the offer ends on January 6th.
You know, we jumped through hoops to produce a professional, physical product, so we're not exactly happy with the increase of sales of the digital version with respect to that of the boxed one. Moreover, we'd really like to see BOH spreading in poorer countries
So, this is definitely the best time to make such a big offer.

A bit offtopic, but i fount on os4depot your game called "universus-demo.lha" that is very, very nice ! It's much-much better by look if compare with BOH ! Graphics are very-very stilsh and remind me old ChaosEngine graphics, but in modern look. Have you any plans to release the final/full version ? As far as i see, there is only sounds/music are missing ?

I can help you with founding music-authors for that game (if you in interest).

Frankly, I couldn't disagree more: the in-game graphics totally suck! They're just placeholders and mix different styles (as they are the result of heavy experimentation by me).

BTW: most of the background graphics of one of the scenarios *are* ripped from The Chaos Engine

Actually, also proper levels and (more) spaceship components are missing. Basically, the engine was 90% done, but the rest was missing.

Thanks, but the project is dead. Back in 2006 I badly needed collaborators (namely, level designers and pixellers), but I couldn't find any, so I had to give up - and, no, I won't resurrect that project.

For more information, please go to uniVERSUS' website.

Glad you liked it. That game had lots of potential.

BTW: since it's the second time uniVERSUS got mentioned lately, earlier today I have uploaded a recompiled version that makes use of libraries which I have improved since the previous release.

You're severely underestimating the amount of work missing:
* all in-game graphics and better cutscenes;
* all levels;
* more spaceship components;
* all sounds;
* music;
* some more work on the code.
In a nutshell, months of work.
