Default Scallywag Demo Now Available!
Press Release Teaser: Fun With Pointy Sticks And Special 'Shrooms!   

News Release For Immediate Release

Fun With Pointy Sticks And Special 'Shrooms!
Scallywag: In the Lair of the Medusa Demo For Windows Now Available!

Hampstead, NC, 09 August 2007

Monty Haulers, hack and slashers, and Deadheads of the world, rejoice! The official
demo for Scallywag: In the Lair of the Medusa, the computer game that promotes eating
strange fungi and killing everything you see (remember kids, don't try this at home!), is
now available for download from Shrapnel Games. The demo features fifteen levels of
monster whacking goodness, and even provides players with a sneak peak at the
possibilities for mod making offered in the full game by allowing some basic modding
experimentation to occur (the full game will allow much, much more).

Developed by UK-based Chronic Reality and published by Shrapnel Games, Scallywag:
In the Lair of the Medusa is the upcoming fantasy game of dungeon exploration,
mushroom eating, and lantern lighting for Windows based PCs. From now until August
26th it may be pre-ordered at the reduced price of $24.95 directly from the Gamers Front,
the Shrapnel Games e-store. After August 26th it reverts to its normal retail price of
$29.95. Pre-ordering will not only allow you to keep five dollars for yourself, but
guarantees that you will be one of the first to own the game when it ships.

Scallywag: In the Lair of the Medusa is a single-player adventure pitting the player, as
humble farm worker Rapius, against the forces of darkness that threaten his once quaint
valley. Choose from four levels of difficulty, and battle your way through eighty levels of
action amongst eight different worlds, growing in heroic power along the way. Each
descent into the catacombs is randomly generated, so you'll never know if the next cavern
contains a healing potion, or twelve feet and six hundred pounds of pure evil ready to
suck the marrow from your bones.

Like any good dungeoncrawl Rapius can collect oodles of equipment to help him on his
quest, many of which that can be combined to make even better items. Not only that, but
dining on the local flora is strongly encouraged. Putting the "magic" in magic
mushrooms, many 'shrooms mutate Rapius in beneficial ways. All told there are twenty
different mutators in Scallywag: In the Lair of the Medusa that can affect the player, with
a great number that stack for some truly wild effects. Drunk invisible werewolf, anyone?

If the scores of randomly generated levels populated with numerous monsters to kill, and
all the cool lewt to snag isn't enough, Scallywag: In the Lair of the Medusa also ships
with its own +5 modding utility, RAGe. RAGe (Random Adventure Game engine)
allows anyone-you, your dog, someone's grandmother, the blind paraplegic flamenco
dancer down the street-to mod the game. Modding can be as simple or complex as you
want it to be. Spend a few minutes and drop in a new mystical weapon, or spend a few
days and do a total conversion. In the demo you'll get a chance to experience a little of
what RAGe has to offer. The full game allows much more complex mod-making, along
with the ability to easily download and run user created content.

Enough talk, there are monsters to hack! Treasure to liberate! And the joy of mycology
to discover! Download the demo from the following link:
