New game for Amstrad GX-4000 from Condense

As you may know it, Condense basically spent the last decade creating demos for the Amstrad CPC 6128, releasing Pheelone (2009), Phortem (2013) and phX (2018).
We started to get some interest lately for the Amstrad Plus, thanks to productions like CRTC³, Eerie Forest and the incredible remakes of Ghost'n'Goblins (the one from Xifos/Targhan is released, and the very promising one from Golem13/iXien is still in development). And of course, let's not forget Gerald that has made an incredible gift to the Amstrad community by releasing the C4CPC, a fantastic device allowing the launch of custom programs running from a SDCard directly on the real machine.

Have we seen a cart game yet that really pushes the system to the limits? I guess that we're about to....

I *finally* managed to win an auction for a reasonably priced GX4000 today, looks like it was just in time!

If you get it - get a two player game of Pang going with family or friends - its still a great (addictive) Plus game ;D

I am not being rude, just realistic at this point. What they produced is awesome, no doubt about that. The technical feat is astounding but at this point I cannot ever see it being available and therefore the Vapourware title fits. Only a select few people will ever get to experience/play the masterpiece.

They could create new tables and name it BatPinball, but I guess they are trying to reach an agreement before resorting to that.

There is a big difference between being vapourware and being in limbo. Vapourware doesn't simply mean "unreleased", it's a perjorative term meaning the developer is hyping it without being able to finish it. Pinball Dreams is finished, it's just in limbo for legal reasons outside of BG Games control.

yeah Pinball Dreams isn't remotely vapourware.  The game itself is done and exists.

My projects are much more vapourware as i really don't know if they'll ever be even half complete cos i'm crap at everything.

No, it is not appropriated as the game exist and it is possible to play it on CPC events. A vaporware is a rumour of something that nobody have seen..I think that is abusive to use this word for this game.

If PD was just released what would really happen?  Are the copyright owners really going to lose sleep over a very niche piece of software or is it being held with the intention of selling it for money?

Btw (since I got the question) the game targets the Amstrad GX-4000 but of course, it will also run on Amstrad Plus computers.  :)
