So, are there any coders with concrete interest in the compo yet?
Yes, in this moment five persons are showed interest, and two of them with two projects!!! :D :D :D ... But we only are going to put information about these projects in the wiki page, after they give permission :)

PD: Don't forget that the people/team interested must register in the competition by sending me an email.

- The applicant owns their work, so therefore submitted games will *ONLY* be released for sale at an agreed price if the coder expresses a desire to do so.

Just to make things clearer : you mean like in Commercial games... , with some prods expecting a few dozen copies sold and "they sold a hundred" ;-) only for the best ones (top rated on all aspects, gameplay, graphics, music), right ?
Any working hourly rate computation would yield a very low result, so the main motivation here is definitely nostalgia. Any income would never decently cover spent time, right ?
(I would never expect anything different from retro-computing, just asking.)
Had a CPC since 1985, currently software dev professional, including embedded systems.

Well, I don't think money comes anywhere near the discussion. My guess is the original mention was there because, typically, you're talking about a 'commercial' release - so it must be said... not that it's going to make a shitload of money :D

That's a known fact making retro gaming is good for making money.With R-Type, we were able to afford a porshe for every EE members (except totO who selled a kidney for producing package).This porshe :



More seriously, this is not only nostalgia , fun is our main motivation !

Tell you what, if I was a dev I'd be happy with a toy car assuming it had Amstrad/Wiki decals :)

Was thinking the exact same thing :D  Like:

WRC
OZ
Sparco
Flame
Dragon
Amstrad CPC464

Ooh yeah. Couple that with the vector machine drawings we have, it could be sweet!

Hell, I'm doing it.

If you get any richer you'll have to move to Belgium or Russia or where ever all the rich French people go to hide from the Tax man. :D

That was my first plan but GĂ©rard stole me the idea (evidence: my son is named Sacha (the first idea was Youri)) so i'll just do like most of hypocritical rich people in France , i'll go to Monaco , Luxembourg or another european fiscal paradise  ;D
Anyway , i'll never be rich , that needs talent or luck and i do not own any of theses  :P
