Number seven is pure heaven

It's been a while since my last news post: tracking down bugs doesn't make for thrilling news. But now here's something to make up for it: Alpha 7 of Jailbreak 2003 has been released internally. The most striking new feature is the addition of the Jailbreak Theme Song, by Pablo "Guybrush" Delgado. This plays when you select the Jailbreak game type in the configuration dialogs.

Another really nifty new idea from Mychaeel is the JBSpeech framework. This slices together speech announcements in realtime from short segments, allowing a large variety of game announcements from a smaller number of samples.

Add to that all the fun features I've been telling you about (human ladders, celebration screen and so on) and I think our testers are in for a fun time.
