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.

As the release is slowly approaching, we are now accepting preregistrations for Sam’s Journey on our in development site!

Chester Kollschen, the coder of Sam’s Journey, was interviewed in February by Commodore Plus.

Sam is, by the way, still happily jumping, striking and throwing around items. We had issues with the first cardboard boxes printed (the printing house had zoomed our input files), but they are resolved now. We will soon disclose pictures of the box and some of the feelies.

The eighth release of the English language magazine “Reset” has a focus on Adventure games.

We’re featured twice in this particular issue: with D42, and with Heroes & Cowards by Out of Order Softworks.

Heroes & Cowards scored 9 out of 10 points for its great graphics, entertaining story, and its interesting locations and items – and was rated “Reset… RIPPER!”
The catchy soundtrack was popular with the testers as well.

Not to forget the D42-Adventure System that allows you to easily build your own graphical adventure for the C64; programming skills not required. The D42-Adventure System scored 8 out of 10 points in their test.

You’ll find these and many more interesting tests, information and C64 game news in the current issue – get it right here: http://reset.cbm8bit.com/?dir=issue8

It’s still uncomfortable, windy and cold outside – the ideal wheather to take a short walk to a kiosk around the corner, get a hot coffee to go along with the current issue #33 of Retro magazine, and, back at home, sip the hot brew and enjoy a well-written review of Leisure Suit Leo 2.

When you’re done sipping and reading Retro magazine from front to back, it’s time to turn on your 64 and load Scene World #24. The current issue of the popular English disk magazine offers some comprehensive articles including an interview with none other than Volker Rust, who writes about his beginnings on the C64 and the upcoming blockbusters from Out of Order Softworks (spoilers ahead! 🙂 ).

While the English version is technically the same as the original one from 1997, it comes with a manual in book form packed in a stylish box which makes it an ideal holiday gift for collectors of gaming treasures on the C64.

Buyers of the German version also get a remastered edition of the game, plus an extra disk with the rare first installment.

Spanish retro-blog “Commodore Plus” has published two extensive reviews of the D42 – Adventure System and Leisure Suit Leo 2. Those of you who know some Spanish might want to have a look. And for those who refuse to learn any foreign languages: There are some photos and screenshots, too. 🙂

Virtual Dimension has once again done some field maintenance with “Vor Ort”, this time on Gamescom 2014. You can watch their entire report on retro computing on YouTube.

Impatient folks can fast forward to minute 10:47 where you can see the D42 Adventure System presented to you by our very own, suit-clad Out of Order expert Volker Rust. You can catch the occasional glimpse at Leisure Suit Leo 2, too.

The last time the folks at Virtual Dimension visited us on the spot was back in 2003 was at Vision Party. Those of you who want to indulge in more memories should stop by our press column and browse through reviews and videos.
