Tim - Sams Journey from the wonderful people at Knights of Bytes takes a step closer to coming to you on the NES. Pre orders are now open on the PolyPlay website. A disappointment that at the moment there is no USA distribution announced yet. However, you can pre order for the sum of 60 Euros for the NES and they also are doing a Famicom version. There is also the Ultimate Edition for 180 Euros
Tim – Our show friend and retro game maker legend Juan J. Martínez has done it again! This time Juan is delighting us with a fantastic little platformer for DOS... yes that’s right a DOS game! The game is Gold Mine Run! Its heavily influenced by Night Knight on the MSX another game by Juan... but that’s no bad thing as that’s also a great game. Check it out on Juan’s website, if you do download and play it, don’t forget to throw Juan a few bucks / pounds / euros his way on his Kofi site. He does not do it for the money, but it helps to show appreciation for his continued efforts making games for us mere game playing mortals that cant code for toffees! It’s a Bobby Dazzler (also a good name for Juan’s next game!)
Tim - Sonic Fans Want To Raise $4,000 To Preserve Insanely Rare 'SegaSonic' Arcade Game.
SegaSonic The Hedgehog is one of the blue blur's lesser-known adventures. Released in Japan in 1993, it has never been re-released on any home system – nor has it been included on any of Sonic's many respective collections.
Eric – Whiplash Taxi Co for Pico 8 - https://www.lexaloffle.com/bbs/?tid=53583
Tim – New game for your PET.. Nope it’s not an RPG for your pet Rat. It’s a new game for the Commodore PET. A new homebrew has been relased by Fuzzybad (Mastodon: @email@example.com) called PET Light Cycles this is a take on the Tron light cycle game. Not only has this game got great use of the PET graphics but also has sound and music on the title screen. Available as a free to download on Fuzyybad’s Itch site, but please leave a tip to show your appreciation.
