Check out the new Behind the Scenes -blog update to learn of the triumphant return of the original supervillain of TAGAP.

Second, with the reveal of our lead villain I'm also happy to announce that his exploits will be chronicled by a great artist, who you should already be familiar with. Poison Sleeper, the artist responsible for some amazing TAGAP fan art, is giving us a helping hand in creating diagetic art chronicling and glorifying Glowenko's conquests. Here are some of the examples of what you can expect to see in the future;

And the third thing?

Well, we can finally make it official.

TAGAP 4 arrives in 2022!

Happy Holidays – and stay safe everybody!

Updates: Classic TAGAP v3.6 and TAGAP 3 v2.7!

The TAGAP trilogy gets some upgrades!

There are two crucial things going on with updates across all the games. First is the entire codebase being moved to the Windows 10 SDK from the Windows 8.1 SDK. This, coupled with a full code revalidation sweeps and optimisation runthroughs, makes these the most future proof releases so far. If you've had any issues running these games on modern gaming rigs, they should be a thing of the past now.

Second, a long requested feature I thought I couldn't pull off without entirely re-doing how the games handle text output, is the support for Cyrillic multibyte characters. So, if you're a modder or translator wanting to tinker with TAGAP engine games, the script files can now be edited and saved in Unicode. ТАГАП, baby!

There are also other more minor fixes as well, but these two are the big ones.

The updates are, as always, available as patches, full game installers and as plain zip files. Whatever you need, you'll find it in the Download Classic TAGAP and Download TAGAP 3 sections.
