The better developers that have worked for Hewson on Amstrad games
Dave Rogers
Raffaele Gecco
John Phillips
Dominic Robinson


I think what this is all about is that Andrew Hewson really was a speccycoder

This is now going off topic but I always thought Hewson games were good.

Hewson, Ocean,Elite and Gremlin were consistently good.
The others had a mix of quality.

I disagree, they all had variable quality. Elite was probably most consistent of these four. Check the releases of the individual companies using this link and enter the name of the company in the search box : http://www.cpc-power.com/index.php?page=staff

This game has not yet been published. Only a demo is available with one of the boards.

Hi!

There is no release date yet (and before new year seems too soon), but we continue working to meet the expectations :)

The expectations are more than meet with the demo!!

of course this game will be a milestone on cpc games and shut up a lot of mouths (from other scenes)

We are also trying to contact the current owners of the game rights, in order to not have issues and be able to publish it.
We contacted Hewson Consultants (parents of 21 Century), which redirected us to Rebellion, which have not responded to us for now.
But on the other hand, we are not sure that Rebellion are the current owners of the rights. Does anyone know anything else?

Thanks!

Have you tried DiCE direct? http://www.dice.se/about/
Maybe they have an idea about who still owns copyright.

If Hewson suggest Rebellion have the rights then I would think that may be the case.

21st Century released Pinball Dreams 2 developed by Spidersoft rather the DICE, so I suspect the rights to the name sat with them.

Thanks! I will ask DICE (nothing is lost by asking)
I also thought about asking the developers of the C64 version, since I read somewhere that they had obtained the permissions.
As far as I know, 21 Century sold the rights to Rebellion, but I do not know if they keep them. What I know is that it is hard to contact with Rebellion, I've tried it through several routes, web, Facebook, ... and they have not answer. That "lack of interest" could mean that they no longer have the rights ...
On the other hand, Cowboy Rodeo released iOS versions in 2011, but I have not found a trace of them to be able to ask.

Credit due for atleast making the effort to make contact. Lets hope it's not a stumbling block.

They seem to have disappeared, but I found an article stating that they licensed the IP from Rebellion:

Regarding contacting Rebellion, my normal tactic for these matters is to start from the top.
