Schedule Change for Upcoming Songbird Games - 11/1/1999

*** PRE-ORDER SPECIALS END TODAY (NOV 1) ***

Songbird Productions http://songbird.atari.org

Songbird Productions is your leading supplier of new and hard-to-find products for the Atari Lynx and Jaguar. Jaguar fans have responded enthusiastically these past few weeks and pre-ordered the upcoming games -- Skyhammer, Soccer Kid, Hyper Force, and Protector.

Any pre-orders received or postmarked by Nov. 1st will qualify for pre-order pricing and specials. You can still pre-order three of the four upcoming games beyond today -- however, you will not be eligible for the pre-order pricing and specials.

*** SCHEDULE CHANGE: HERE COMES PROTECTOR! ***

The release schedule has been rearranged, resulting in Protector being moved up to the 12/20/99 release date, and Skyhammer being placed at the 05/08/00 release date. Hyper Force and Soccer Kid are unaffected.

Songbird is aware that many fans are eagerly awaiting the release of Skyhammer, and this game is still definitely committed to release. The reason for the schedule adjustment is simply a matter of cost. Original quotes from electronics vendors several months ago were 30-40% lower than what they are currently. This rise in cost makes it much more difficult to release Skyhammer at the committed price point, so as a result Songbird plans to ride out the temporary increase in component cost and purchase these parts in early 2000 when hopefully the prices have declined.

Your patience and understanding is appreciated in this matter. Songbird is releasing a total of four new games for the Jaguar over the next 7 months, and the costs and risks involved are significant.

Songbird also recognizes some customers may have pre-ordered only Skyhammer because it was the first game in the release schedule. If this applies to you, and you would now like to switch your pre-order to Protector instead, simply email Songbird at songbird@atari.org indicating your desire, and we will gladly accommodate the switch.

Protector is an exciting 2D bidirectional shooter that has been a surprise hit with many Jaguar fans at JagFest '99 and CGE '99. Songbird is confident that this game is an excellent kickoff to the release schedule.

*** ORDERS NOW ACCEPTED FOR PROTECTOR ***

Due to the change in schedule, Songbird is now accepting full orders for Protector, which will be released on 12/20/99. The retail price of Protector for new orders is $74.95 plus shipping.

If you pre-ordered Protector, you will owe a balance of $44.95 plus shipping. If you pre-paid by credit card, you will need to authorize payment of the balance on your card or supply a different card number. Please contact Multimedia 1.0 again to complete your order, or email Songbird with your complete order, customer information, and credit card number. Payment by check or MO in US Dollars is also always accepted.

Please email Songbird at songbird@atari.org with any questions. And a big thank you to every Jaguar fan who has pre-ordered one or more of the upcoming games.

Sincerely,

Carl Forhan
