If it is a Windows game, I assume that it is using DirectX... so no, the 386 will probably not run it  :)

Eh, I had to ask. Ever since Brian Provinciano made Retro City Rampage an MSDOS game (486,VGA, PC speaker), I have unrealistic expectations. Besides, if the puny Z80 can run it...

I think it should be possible to do such games even in 286 if there is no scrolling involved, just static screens. Then with VGA hw scrolling and some really fast soft sprite routines more could be possible. I remember Jazz Jack Rabbit running well in 386DX.
It's not easy of course, there are many performance issues with old PCs, but I like that the 90s gamedevs and demoscene took the challenge and achieved more than typically possible. Today, when someone goes back to retro PC coding for nostalgia, doesn't do as good job at optimizing as it used to be imho.

Whatever happened to the Amstrad release of this game.  I found the PC version of it on steam, currently available for £1.79 until 1st Nov - https://store.steampowered.com/app/830410/Nogalious/

Yes, I've been wondering the same thing.
I backed the kickstarter specifically to see the CPC version come to fruition.  :'(

Did you get the PC version after backing it?

I had selected the "8BIT EARLY SUPPORTER DIGITAL COPY" option, so I don't get a copy of the PC version.
However, I just purchased the PC version on Steam, since it is so cheap at the moment.

I don't know if any of the 8-bit versions are complete, or if they ever will be.  :doh:

This is why I don't back things in this way, I have considered it but to many projects take much longer than estimated or sink without a trace   hopefully it will come out eventually on amstrad.  Maybe we could I'm the Op and ask, they haven't been active for a few months here.   Maybe I'll buy the steam version too.

Indeed, the PC version is so cheap I'm getting it right away. IIRC they had told me the CPC version would be late, for which I'm not particularly bothered to tell you the truth... Sure, the delay is big but, eh...

Please let us have your feedback on the PC version, seems to get well reviewed but is tough.
