Neat!
So great to see our beloved Sort'em game reviewed, especially when it receives such a nice score. Never expected that. Thanks a lot for that fine review. :)

Retroaction Mag is a very cozy magazine. Enjoying reading it quite a lot, but mostly scoping for CPC stuff of course. ;)

Hey, mr_lou, it was a pleasure to play Sort'em. With so many homebrew games released in the past few months, it's nice to play a simple, yet addictive game. Well done, and hopefully it won't be your last 8-bit homebrew project.  ;)

Time will tell. :)
Currently we're close to finishing our 3rd mobile game, and when we're done with that, then we really need a break from game-development.

Retro-development is very cozy though, and definitely still appealing. At least for the CPC. The C64 turned out to be too tricky for us for now. But it's not unlikely we'll engage ourselves in another CPC game at a later time. :)

Reading Retroaction is inspiring. :) Please do keep up the good work.

Thanks for a lovely, lovely mag. Sunday morning, listening to Bach's Cello suites, roast in the oven and reading it. Damn nice... =)

Thanks, Gryzor, much appreciated. Work has already begun on issue 3, so it looks like we'll be around for a little while at least.
