GarageGames announced today the launch of Aerial Antics from Leadfoot Productions and 3D Mahjong from GameShapers both for Windows based PCs. Read more for details on both titles ...

Ever wanted to know what it feels like to have a rocket strapped to your back? Aerial Antics puts players in the pilot's seat of a single person jet pack where becoming the world's best aerial performer is your goal. The innovative physics based gameplay not only allows players to control jet pack thrust but also pitch and yaw. Control is virtually effortless as players can use this to control their movement in a free flowing manner. Aerial Antics spans five unique locales with fifty levels and a plethora of unique and challenging scenarios.

Taking a classic game to a new level is 3D Mahjong Solitaire. Forcing the player to think in three dimensions, 3D Mahjong Solitaire introduces the use of elevated layouts, featuring spanning bridges and multiple layers. Using photorealistic artwork, real-time 3DFX, dynamic lighting and tranquil multi-layered audio, 3D Mahjong Solitaire is truly a captivating and surreal experience. Other key features include twenty original and classic layouts, billions of unique games, classic as well as kids tile sets and in-game super hints all combine to provide a fun and lasting challenge for novices and masters alike.

"When Jeremy first contacted us about eighteen months ago, he had a fun game idea, explains Jeff Tunnell, President of GarageGames, "we gave him feedback along the way, but never told him how to produce his game. Now he has a game that is winning some early awards and we couldn't be more excited for him. And together with Paul Varney's brilliant 3D Mahjong Solitaire, these two games represent indie teams with the passion and drive to get their games built and more importantly, published."

"Leadfoot Productions is ready to launch hard and fast out of the Garage, comments Jeremy Alessi, "it is a fitting start for a company whose founders love to race and create games."

"Re-inventing any game can be a challenge," says Paul Varney, "especially when you know it will compete with proven best sellers and getting a fair evaluation is nearly impossible. But when GarageGames said this is the way "we'd want to make Mahjong we knew they'd get behind it for the innovative game that it is."

Aerial Antics and 3D Mahjong Solitaire are both available at for $19.95 and have demo versions available for Windows based PCs.
