MAHrch is coming!
27.02.2018
Written by JTR

If you like games that step out of the norm, you might like MAH by Retream. MAH is the first game to be published in cooperation by RGCD and Protovision and will be available 2nd of march in both shops.

The Protovision version of MAH (disk version) comes with quick reference cards instead of a manual and is the 3rd game to feature our new cardboard box.

Watch the videos at the end of the page to fully compare the RGCD and Protovision versions of the game: https://www.protovision.games/games/mah.php?language=en

Availability of Sam’s Journey
Written by JTR

The sheer unbelievable amount of Sam orders from the first weeks after the release still keeps us busy!

Even though Jakob shipped out *more than 1000* packages since End of December, we still have a backlog of about 200 open orders. Please hang on, the quality of the games will make up for the waiting time!

We decided to make Sam available again in the shop, however with a 1-4 months delivery time just to be sure we’ll be able to keep that promise this time.

NEWS FROM THE C64 SCENE: New Book Retro Game Dev C64 Edition
Written by Poison

In 2017 we have seen so many high quality C64 releases – last time this was the case was in the 90s!

Maybe you have caught fire as well and you want to make a great new C64 game yourself now?
If so, the book „Retro Game Dev C64 Edition“ (which was also released in 2017) is just for you.

Derek Morris helps to get into modern C64 game programming easily.

By implementing two tiny micro games that you will program with this book, you’ll learn step by step how to use CBM prg Studio, hardware & software sprites, sprite character animation and so on.

The book is available from Amazon and is a must have for any upcoming game maker.

NEWS FROM THE C64 SCENE: Steel Ranger / Pains’n’Aches
Written by JTR

Two great new games are now available from Psytronik for preordering, however the digital version of the games are supplied directly.

Steel Ranger is Covert BitOps‘ new shooting action game. As usual with CO, it comes with a well scripted storyline and cunning game design.

 

Pains’n’Aches is a sequel to Knight’n’Grail and also feels similar in gameplay. It has a minimalistic style and is story driven as well.

Sam’s Journey *and* Galencia are Games of the Year!
26.01.2018
Written by JTR

We are very proud that BOTH games that we have published in 2017 have been selected as ‚Game of the Year‘ by different juries.

The C64 platformer Sam’s Journey was crowned GOTY by the (very informative!) portal „Indieretronews“ and the C64 action shooter Galencia got first in the poll of the Reset magazine, with Planet Golf and Sam’s Journey right behind.

Still waiting for Sam’s Journey?
Written by Poison

Here is an update:
When we started shipping out the C64 game Sam’s Journey end of December, we had an overall of about 400 orders since October. We never had to send out so many games at one time!

And above all, our distribution guy (Jakob Voos) is in hospital now due to complications with a wisdom tooth removal, which might delay the shipments for another 1-2 weeks.

Within the last 3 weeks we received ANOTHER 400 orders (it would be 500 if Sam wasn’t sold out)!

It will still take many weeks until all Sams are delivered.
We hope you will have an abundance of patience with us.

We can assure you, however, that
EVERYONE WILL RECEIVE HIS OR HER SAM EVENTUALLY!
