ArmourSoft's Quasi-Quarterly Newsletter
1993 to 1995
Please note: there's a lot of (very!) obsolete information in these old newsletters. ArmourSoft Inc. officially shut down as a business in February 1998, although I continue to use the ArmourSoft (no Inc.) name on some of my game design projects. A lot of the projects mentioned in these newsletters were cancelled or postponed indefinitely. These newsletters are reposted here, despite being way out of date in most details, simply because I thought they still hold some interest and/or amusement value.
Reading back over these files, I'm bemused by the fact that of all the "coming soon" projects and products discussed in the newsletters, the only two we actually managed to produce are Slargeball and Napoleon at Chattanooga, and both those were only DTP (DeskTop Publishing) do-it-yourself game kits. Looking back now, I'm amazed we managed to pull even that off. Fortunately I was much better in my "real" job as a computer professional than I was at running a game company.
These pages are, for the most part, the original rough-n-dirty HTML versions I posted on the ArmourSoft web site in 1997. I've fixed most of the more obvious spelling errors and deleted a few details like the old ArmourSoft mailing address and phone number and some of the personal stuff.
If there is sufficient demand, I may be able to redo all eight issues of the newsletter as PDF files and repost them, assuming I can find the original Ami Pro files and can successfully convert them. The raw HTML format as presented here doesn't do the originals justice. At the moment I can't get either my 1992-vintage copy of Ami Pro or my 1995-vintage copy of Adobe PDF Distiller to work, so I can't guess when the PDF versions of the newsletter will be available.
Here's every issue of DHO (all eight of them) ever printed, including the original illustrations:
