Sad indeed. An unexpected accident in California; James Horner died in a plane crash. He was alone in a small private aircraft; and was a trained pilot. He was 61.
What is perhaps rather eerie is that in his last interview in April, when asked about his continued involvement with the franchise he said "If I last that long".
A great shame in any case; he will be missed by many.Read more >
Hey folks. Just found out that this had been released; there was basically no fanfare or announcement bar it being posted on the Google Play and itunes stores. Literally, googling it just comes up with our article, one of the store pages and then various articles from January unveiling it.

Whoever made the website did their research; it even references …Read more >
Hey folks. While doing some digging to find information about AVTR Advanced Team I discovered that another flash game was made at the time under the title Pandora ROVR, a sort of Myst-esque rover simulator. We totally missed it! It was done with McDonalds and the site is down (its been like five years), but i came across a back-up on someone's art portfolio website!
I believe the game was launched on Dec 11 2009, at the same time as the other flash game. Notably, each time you investigate an item it adds a log to the 'notes section', which quickly becomes somewhat of a wiki itself. There is a wealth of information in there for the site. I have also made a local back-up of the opening (CG) cutscene. …Read more >
