New arcade game: Sqij 2018 (for arcade hardware)


Another day, another release. This time it’s SQIJ again. The previous game I released was a Spectrum version of this C64 game, but here I’ve taken the Spectrum game and coded an arcade version of it – and because the Taito arcade hardware is much more capable than the humble ZX Spectrum – this game is now looking as good as it’s ever going to.

As this version is for arcade hardware most people will have to play it on the MAME emulator, but it should run on the real hardware too.

Go here to download the game, read all about the game follow the interesting links to its story.

And not only that: the ZX Spectrum version should be available on physical cassette tape in the near future, but more about that when it’s out 😉

New Spectrum game: SQIJ 2018.

My first release of 2018 is a funny one – basically it’s a remake of one of the very worst games for the ZX Spectrum. Or more precisely: this game is a remake of the original C64 game that unfortunately only received such a truly atrocious Spectrum version back in the day.

But here’s a new version that’s almost identical to the original C64 version – same map and item placements … and most importantly – unlike the official Spectrum version from 1987 this one is actually playable.

Two updated games: Vallation 128K & Doctor Who for OSX.

I have two “new” releases today – The 128K version of Vallation and the OSX port of my Doctor Who game.

The 128K version of Vallation has many changes and improvements over the 48K version that came out a year ago.

And not only that – it’s also finally out on physical cassette. It’s a stuning release and duplication and handling is done by Psytronik Software. Go here to read more about it.

The second release is the OSX port of my Doctor Who Graphical Adventure game, that came out about a month ago. Now it can be played if you’re on a Mac computer too. Go to the games page to download the game.

 

 

New Game: Doctor Who Adventure Game

I’m not only doing remakes – sometimes I do original games too, and today I’m happy to present my latest game.

The game is a graphical adventure set the Doctor Who universe. The game is inspired by classic games like Pyjamarama and the classic LucasArts adventures games.

The artist and I started work on it 3 years (and two weeks) ago, but had a 22 month break in the middle of development, because after making the first two parts of the game we didn’t quite know where to take the story for the last part … so we both worked on other things for almost 2 years. When we finally got back to it we came up with the final third of the story, so the actual development time is “only” about 14 months … and a quite considerable chunk of that time has been fixing bugs, LOL, but we both feel that it’s done and ready to be played now, so it’s nice to finally be able to “put it out there“.

I hope you will enjoy the game … and please let me know if you like it. 🙂

There will be two more games released sometime over the next two months. Stay tuned …
