Fantastic Exile Windows-Remake, with modern graphics, great sound und really fine playability.

PC-Exile Simon Storr's PC Exile
This project is a DirectX conversion of the classic BBC game, Exile. There already is a playable (but very small) demo to download. Looks interesting, but the graphics look very like the BBC-Version.

The Columbus Force Project
Also a PC-Conversion, but sounds more interesting: "This is not just a nostalgic ramble - my chosen task right now is to painstakingly remake the game on the PC platform. However, unlike many remakes, I don't see my goal as a pixel-by-pixel duplicate of the original. My aim is to create a fittingly updated Exile, free from the restrictions of the original hardware - more special effects, better graphics, a flexible and extensible game engine architecture and (keep this one hushed) possibly even network play. "

Today (22.03.02) I received good news about this project:
Just found your Exile: Resurrection page, and just thought I'd update you on the Columbus Force project.
It's still alive - even though the site isn't!
I've been trying to move the site to a different host with the same domain name, and it's been slow progress. It WILL return in some form soon, even if I can't get the domain name back.
And even while all this is going on, the project work continues.
I'm rewriting the collision detection code to be polygon-based, giving more accurate physics. I'm also considering changing the graphics library that I'm using. The good news is it works fully on DOS, Windows, and Linux.
