Raylight Updates Their WCP GBA Page Update ID

It's always hard when a new project gets announced but information remains scarce (WCATV2). Fortunately so far news has kept coming in with regards to Wing Commander Prophecy for the Game Boy Advance. I still haven't even gotten over the multiplayer confirmation yet. For today it looks like WCP GBA developer Raylight has updated their webpage with a special Wing Commander section. Some questions are answered, new questions are raised, and there is some familiar text.
One of the defining game sagas of the last decade is landing on the Nintendo GameBoy Advance with "Wing Commander Prophecy." Thanks to Destination Software Inc., Raylight gets the license for its space shooter previously called "Star Giants" and will bring a portable verison of "Wing Commander Prophecy" that will look as close as possible to the original PC version thanks to their "Blue Roses" 3D technology for the AGB.
Sounds great! You can check out their new section here. Be sure to have a look around the rest of their site as well. There are plenty of neat looking older Star Giants and other Blue Roses screenshots on the site to whet our appetite until actual WCP GBA screenshots are available.

RPS Highlights Origin Fandom

Rock Paper Shotgun has run a neat article on longtime Origin collector Joe Garrity. There's a really interesting Q&A that delves into how Joe got started many years ago buying up spare copies of Ultima games and meeting with their creators. It also highlights some of the good work that fans have done to preserve historic material, such as our 2008 trip to archive Origin source documents at Mythic or the assistance Wingnuts gave Raylight to develop Prophecy for the Game Boy Advance.
