What ever happened to Martin Turner?

At least I am pretty sure thats his name...

He was the genius who made 'Frozen Heart" and 'Femme Fatale'....

Has he done any other things?

He helped to do the Non-Technical EV Bible, ::slips into salesman voice:: available at your local EVN Add-ons page. Quantities are limited, so download yours now! :: okay, enough of that::
Yeah, he's still around here Somewhere He pops in every once in a while, he'll probably reply to this thread sooner or later.

He mentioned possibly doing a Frozen Heart sequel for EVN, and then hasn't been seen much. This may or may not be a good sign.

Sequel? Oh goody. FH was one of my favorite TCs ever. I hope it's a good sign.

How dare you not underline, italicize, and embolden the word 'genius'? 🙂

If at first you don't succeed, use more duct tape.

I don't think that UBB can underline.

Reading this makes me wanna buy EVO just for Frozen Heart. Seeing the remarks, it's surprising FH wasn't the default storyline for Override. What is it about?

In the Frozen heart, you play very interesting character. The storyline is very involving, and the ship you get is enormously fast but not a battleship. It wasn't the EVO storyline for the same reason that some people complain about Nova: very restricting. It told you exactly what your emotions were, and there were no multiple paths. Basically, you did the mission string or you were bored to death. It contains many amazing things, like asteroids that actually hurt your ship and a black hole. The black hole would, of course, be much easier to program in EVN than in EVO. The Frozen Heart actually worked for both EVO and EVN, and came with a converter that would change the plugin between them. It was a total conversion, and is, in my opinion, THE best plug to date. The graphics were awesome, too.

(edit)Oh, and not to reduce ambrosia's profits, but FH provides no reason to buy EVO. Cap'n Hector is so much slower than you are, and you can use plugins with EVO before registering. Just to show you the wonders of Martin Turner. Check out Femme Fatale, too; that takes place in the same universe and is also very high quality.(/edit)

Just be sure to play Frozen Heart BEFORE Femme Fatale.

Slight correction, Frozen Heart worked for both EV and EVO not EVN.

Yeah, Flight of the Eagle. It is supposed to be a rereleasing of the original two for EVN, plus the third installment in the series. I really do look forward to it.

You should buy EVO before playing Frozen Heart. I remember one time I played it before registering it. I had recently been given access to buy the tachyonic fighter but I could not round up the 2 million credits needed to buy the ship, for every time I got near the goral, Cap'n Hector robbed me!

Needless to say, once I registered, I was able to buy the fighter and have had a good time since.

God bless,
