Soul Force – NTSC update & Outstanding Orders
04.03.2021
Written by Protovision

We have identified a bug on the Icicka stage of Soul Force that appears only on NTSC machines. This bug has been resolved and you can access the Soul Force update via the original download link supplied to you previously.

For those who are still waiting to receive their physical copies of Soul Force – we have had to pause processing your orders as one of our UK based suppliers is currently not in a position to supply us with some of the package components. The supplier will be able to fulfil our order in the upcoming weeks but in the meantime we apologise for the additional delay in getting your physical copies. We will post an update to confirm when we are in a position to process the outstanding orders.

21.02.2021
Written by Protovision

After 18 long months, a new issue of the awesome Reset magazine is finally here. Next to reviews of many other recent C64 games, Kevin Tilley (Unkle K) and Rob Caporetto (Hellfire64) had a look at our Glide ’n‘ Gun Wormhole.
Furthermore, the new Mix-i-Disk features Bucket Wars 1.3 – a great little strategy game by Daniel Hotop (Oziphantom) of Protovision.
The issue also mentions other Protovision titles, such as Neutron (within the RGCD C64 16KB Cartridge Game Development Competition 2019 article) as well as MW Ultra and Soul Force (in the news).
For the cover topic "Train themed games" selected guests were invited to write about their favorite train game, our very own Jakob Voos (Jak T Rip) being among them.
Download the PDF as "pay what you want" from itch.io!
Printed versions of both Reset64 #12 and #13 are planned. Stay tuned!
