Exaggerated Software  ca

Exaggerated Software was the two-man game company of Colin Buckley and Chris Blackwell, who created three shareware games together between 1992 and 1994. Colin and Chris's first game was a Kaboom! clone called Catch, If You Can!, which listed the copyright holder as Colin Buckley, and all payments were to be made out to Colin. They created a puzzle game called Tubes under the name Absolute Magic, which received interest from Apogee Software, but was ultimately published by Impulse Software instead. During development of their third and final game, Evasive Maneuvers, they changed their company label to Exaggerated Software, although a runtime error states, "Please report this to Absolute Magic", and the Absolute Magic logo appears in Scenario 4. This time the ordering information listed Chris Blackwell's mailing address and requested that payments be made out to him. A number of other game concepts were in various levels of discussion or development after Evasive Maneuvers, but none were ever released. Colin Buckley is now a web developer and Chris Blackwell is a freelance writer. It looks like Chris may own or operate
