Bryce, your post is off topic here. Wrong section?  ???

True, I tend to wander sometimes... :)

Keeping this on topic :) Is this going to be a physical release that we can buy? I hope it is. Nothing better than having the actual disk/tape in your hand and looking at a nice inlay.
Possibly off topic - Is there a website that still sells CPC games. I know about Psytronic, but they seem to be C64sentric

I must admit I never got off the first level of Cyber Chicken - Not my type of game. And I was meaning a place where you could buy games rather than an author site, selling 1 game. We need a place for authors to go without all the hassle of production, and for purchasers to have a choice.
I will definitely be buy this platformer though - just my thing and it looks lovely

Play it a second time. :P  I'm the worst player ever and even I can manage all 8 Levels (sometimes). BTW: There is a free version for FutureOS too, just in kind you like to pick up training. But to important things now...

This would be absolutely great, but I guess it would mean to work full time on this for somebody. Then on the other side the CPC scene is ... somehow.... let's say I see a problem in funding.
However your idea is great! Now, how could we do that?

I'm I off topic? Sorry, have been sitting since 9 a.m. at the microscope.  :-\

What happend to Marco (Ciber Chicken's producer)? Amstrad (Schneider) is his favourite machine. Is he not interested anymore in producing new Amstrad games?

Since Cyber Chicken I didn't talk to him about a new game for CPC. But if you have a game to release you can contact him of course.

Oh no please don't add blood. I'm afraid the game will be indexed then. And what about all the CPC-Freax under the age of 18  :P ?

And I was meaning a place where you could buy games rather than an author site, selling 1 game. We need a place for authors to go without all the hassle of production, and for purchasers to have a choice.

Psytronik have already been mentioned and, despite leaning towards Commodore platforms due to the heritage as a C64 publisher in the 1990s, there's three cassette-based releases for the CPC in Kenz's shop and i believe he'll consider good releases on anything he can duplicate the media for.

Similarly, Cronosoft have taken CPC games in the past and have the original Star Sabre available so anyone wanting a publisher might want to look in that direction too. =-)

In both cases i'm not sure they've got the right kit for duplicating disk-based games at the moment, though.

This would be absolutely great, but I guess it would mean to work full time on this for somebody. Then on the other side the CPC scene is ... somehow.... let's say I see a problem in funding.

However your idea is great! Now, how could we do that?


Quoted for truth. It is a great idea and i'd love for there to be a dedicated publisher along the lines of RGCD on the CPC (especially if they remembered me when review copies were being sent out =-) but there's always going to be an initial financial outlay from whoever gets things going to purchase media, pay for printing of inlays and buying in shipping materials. It's certainly not impossible to do, but step one is going to be costing things up to see what is or isn't viable and talking to Kenz, James or Simon at Psytronik, RGCD and Cronosoft respectively for some tips is worth doing.
And i know it might not prove popular 'round these parts, but it's worth considering releases on multiple platforms...

S'worth remembering that, although it might all be for beer money, there's also a huge amount of admin to take care of which extends beyond the mastering and posting of games as well; the folks doing it on other platforms are all treating it as a proper business, keeping appropriate records and sending out sales reports to their authors and keeping it transparent in this way so that everyone knows where the money is going seems to be the best solution.

(Also more on topic;
sad1942, i sent you a PM t'other day about blagging a screenshot from this thread for a "coming soon" news item in Retro Gamer, let me know if that's okay. =-)

I played Mortal Kombat way before I turned 18, I turned out ok. Well I did not kill anyone so far , apart from my time.

Though it was a while ago now, last time I talked to Kenz about that it seemed the main problem was getting hold of reliable 3" disks.


And i know it might not prove popular 'round these parts, but it's worth considering releases on multiple platforms...


Is it popular anywhere?  I get the impression multiplatform releases have become a fairly uncommon exception these days.

Hey guys! Talk about this very promising looking game got me to register here. Without getting too far ahead of ourselves, I'm sure there is months and months of work still to be done on this game project, I would like to see a Psytronik release of this, on tape and 3.5" disk. 3" is probably unlikely to happen as it's indeed hard to find usable disks. More 3.5" disk commercial releases would be really cool. As I'm not really that much of an Amstrad expert, how common are 3.5" drives in this cummunity? Do you think that kind of disk releases is something worth suggesting to Kenz of Psytronik Software?

Sorry, bad wording on my part and i didn't mean one game on multiple platforms. What i was failing to say was that i feel it'd be a good idea to not focus purely on the Amstrad CPC and accept submissions for other platforms like Psytronik, Cronosoft or to a lesser degree RGCD does (if the guy who approached me about putting my Atari 8-bit game Callisto onto cartridge had come through, James was up for selling that too) because a bit of cross pollination seems to help.

There's nothing to stop a potential publisher releasing something like Megablasters: EFCITC or UMMO on the PCW either, the cartridge version of Edge Grinder earnt me some beer money and the source code for that is freely downloadable!
