Press cutting added by Ste Pickford on Tue, 17 Aug 2004

It can be really hard to get hold of press cuttings and reviews of your games when you're just the developer. Publishers tend to hire agencies to collate all reviews and mentions of them and their products in the press, but small developers can't afford this, and its a bit hit and miss whether publishers consider you important enough to pass this information on.
So I'm pretty lucky to have clippings of a couple of reviews in the Japanese weekly games magazine Famitsu of two of our games - Solstice 2 and Wetrix.
we were told by our Japanese publisher, Imagineer, that the score for Wetrix (8, 8, 8, 7 = 31/40) was the highest received by a Western developed game for many years at the time of publication.
If anyone's sitting on a complete Famitsu collection going back 15 years, then I'd love to see any reviews for Plok! and Aquaqua.
