Layout designers for manuals and project coordinators wanted!

Protovision is a cooperation of enthusiastic hobbyists. We have big plans and we need your help.

Layout and manual designer

We are looking for someone who is willing and able to create manuals for us and can take on additional small layout jobs. Experience with InDesign is appreciated, but knowledge of any other layout design software is welcome.

Project coordinator

Sometimes all you need is a little nudge to get ahead…
We need someone who keeps track on varying projects, documents every step of the way and tirelessly asks each project member for the current status. Sounds like a good task for you?

On August 11th and 12th there will be an open air C64 camping party in Salzgitter, Germany. This will be more of a heart warming get together around the barbecue, than around hardware. Nevertheless, there will be a projector, a demo- and game compo and a shuttle service to the party.

New Protovision member: Hend

We have a new talent in the group and are really proud that Hend joined the team as a new graphic artist.

Hend was also involved in the International Karate Ultimate release.

Email problems with our internet provider

Sadly, all emails that are sent from our provider are currently regarded as spam by Microsoft/Hotmail and will not be delivered.

It is therefore possible that some of our customers do not receive emails from the shop system!
We have filed a complaint – our provider is working on resolving the issue.

Simon Green (aka nomiStake) is now a valued member of our team.
He has already helped us alot with the production of Sam’s Journey and the upcoming cartridge release of It’s Magic 2.

We have a new url! It has been bugging us for years that we didn’t have a simple protovision url, but all fitting urls had been taken already.

But now we are happy with the new url!

Memorize it now! Spread the word! We’ll also keep the old urls, though.
