The programming part is directed by 3-D-topace Markus Poellmann,
who demonstrated his programming abilities with upcoming racing
sensation FLIYN HIGH.
The epic soundtrack will be directed and composed by
Markus Castren, who`s coming right from the demo-scene to
contribute to a real game.
PHOENIX`s 3-D-engine is based on the latest, hottest
chunky-to-planar-routines and pushes the AGA chipset to it`s
limits by offering a fully textured polygon-engine.
Exspect highly detailed starships like You`ve never seen before
on a native Amiga screen, together with colourfull backgrounds
