Almost missed this one from slashdot over the holiday weekend.
Thought others here might be interested.

If I knew how, I'd adjust the games into new versions. Desert Falcon would make a great flying then walking robot game, ala Robotech, the base OS could be tweaked in SO many ways.

Curt Vendel of Legacy Engineering Group is planning on releasing a 7800 expansion soon, so keep eyes open for that, too. more can be found here:
