Just a quick version of the facts for people who doesn't understand spanish:
  • Javier from 4MHz makes an agreement to colaborate on LUEGOLU3GO after meeting Raúl in RetroPixel Málaga.
  • Javier shows Raúl a mockup of how they can improve Nogalious using some graphics from one of their current projects (Malasombra).
  • There is a misunderstanding and Raúl thinks they can use the graphics in the CPC version of Nogalious.
  • 4MHz makes an announcement about their projects and Raúl gets mad when they see Malasombra graphics.
  • Raúl sends Javier a legal document written by his attorney to remove the graphics from Malasombra (!!!).
It's VERY LOGICAL, right?  :picard2:

I'm happy 4MHz guys are clear now, but I don't expect anything good coming from LL. Stay away from them, is not worth it.
Released The Return of Traxtor, Golden Tail and Magica for the CPC.

Was it really? Or did they just patch things over?


I mean, even if they did, the fact that all this happened is ridiculous...

IMHO LL has always been a bit full of shit. The new Dinamic, that KS (bad start, funny ending), getting collaborators from all over the scene, ...is all a bit BS.

It was never for me, so good luck and *ignore*. After this last episode I can't help it, their reputation is clear and I think the sooner they stop messing with the retro community, the better for all.

Stay away from them.

I agree with you, LL doesn't seems to a good game studio: too much hype and too few facts. Nogalious is a very mediocre game and they are presenting the game like something big.

Yeah, I didn't really like the way they went about things. And who coughed up the final €15k in the Kickstarter to suspiciously take them over the line in the final 2 days?

Something tells me it wasn't genuine backers....

And you are right. Raúl admitted to have friends and "partners" that gave money to the campaign...

Ah, interesting. Didn't realise that they'd been up front (or rather found out...) on this topic.

Once those people call in their debts, I wonder how much of the campaign money is left? Enough to develop and publish the game still? Kickstarter takes 5% of the proceeds and they may lose another few % on their payment fees. If they need to pay those people back, they could be down around €1500.

I did think that their target was a bit ambitious for an unknown retro game.

These games look damn hawt.


I truly hope that there is a variant for 512KB Plus Carts (i.e., .crt files for GX4000).

Historically, Spanish coders do not create on the cpc + / gx4000 range, probably du to their poor success in Spain. I have always appreciated their use of mode 0 and mode 1 on the classic hardware.
