Finally it’s here: the Byteriders‘ Heroes & Cowards sees the light of the day on the C64! There will be two different boxed editions which will be available immediately!
The Hero-Edition will be the more luxurious of this lost Byteriders adventure. A unique edition limited to 50 copies, the game on disk does not only come in a classy, hand-numbered steel box including an extensive handbook and a keychain but also provides you with Dartenwood’s citizenship of honor. This does include a sealed certificate, the game’s digitally mastered soundtrack album on CD with additional tracks and the precious pentagram amulet with the sorcerers‘ five magic gems.
The more economical standard edition (the so-called Coward-Editon) comes in a classy steel box with manual, disk and keychain, too. Alas, you will have to do without Dartenwood’s citizenship of honor as well as the soundtrack album and the amulet.
The limited 50 copies of the luxurious Hero-Edition will be sold for 55 Euros, the Coward-Edition will be as cheap as 35 Euros. Due to the elaborate production, not all copies of the limited editions will be immediately available in the shop. We will keep restocking.
Ascetics who can do without haptics will have to wait another two weeks until the digital release. In return, digital money savers will have the choice between a Standard-Download including a D64 image and the handbook in PDF format and a digital Premium-Download for the first time. The latter will additionally include the mastered digital soundtrack album in MP3 format and some exclusive bonus tracks for the game with a playing time of more than 50 minutes.
