The Apricot team has been selected and is ready to make a smashing game using Crystal Space and Blender. In order to support this Apricot project (and support Crystal Space!) you can pre-order the DVD. This is very important for us as it gives us the needed funds to make sure the project can go for six months. You can get more information and pre-order information at [http://apricot.blender.org The Apricot Blog]. Thanks for your support!

Even if the project is now finished you can still support the Blender Institute by pre-ordering the DVD. This will help them to fund other open projects in the future. You can get more information and pre-order information at [http://yofrankie.org The YoFrankie! Blog]. Thanks for your support!
