This.... is wow. It looks more like a retro-inspired game on a modern platform than an original!!!

All game trailers !!! now live
Great list, thanks to the men who made it, and to you, Xenomorph, for publishing it here.

Again, it's nice to see that so many people created something for the famous CPC-Retro-Dev contest. What an amazing amount of work they invested, including those who host the contest.

And no matter how great a game is objectively, each developer has the correct impression that with his own talents he did something great.

In many cases even a simple retro game can have a very special flair which makes it lovely in its own sense.
 
In this strange year of the flu,
the CPC-Retro-Dev's sparks flew.

Of course we cant say a lot from the trailer only, but it seems that quality of the games is much improved this year!
Many games look really good, complicated, and completed games, not only demos.Very good news for the Amstrad community, even if my game doesn't have a chance for the semifinal now!   :D .
 Much stuff for play!!

I can say that Arnaud and Cngsoft constatly offer very nice quality games every year, even if they have not win. Games that could be in top of the market in 90s.

That is very impressive!
Did you write this in only 3 weeks?
If so, that's even more remarkable.

In fact, it was only one week. I gave up on the original project ("Wire Ware", a 2D scrolling platform game that would have looked more like "Prince of Persia" than this) on Tuesday 27th when I realised I still had too few graphics and no map, and that I wouldn't be able to design them in time. It wasn't as bad as when I made "Epimetheus" (just a couple of days) but it was a bitter experience nonetheless.

Only a few more days left to wait.
Turns out I forgot to include the user manual in my submission, oh well guess they won't be able to play it very well....
There had to be a side effect of doing an allnighter somewhere :P

My user manual had an entire section dedicated to why I'm disappointed with my game.

How much memory was missing to include the features you removed ?

I'm not really sure, but I had to remove several features (i.e. lots of code) AND the data they would have used.
And there would have been a lot of data.
The 16K used by the double-buffer would have been plenty though.

I've been wondering... which game is yours?
As per my tradition I made another game featuring Fitzroy.
This time it is about sea mines, Fitzroy goes sweeping.


I was very much thinking about Roland goes digging and Roland goes square bashing when coming up with the name.
And just like the Roland games my games are quite different from each other although I try to make there to be some similarities.

Thanks, I'm expecting it to be like last year that once people play it they can offer a few suggestions of how to tweak the game to make it better.

@ervin, you are making a public claim against a legitimate member of the CPCRetroDev organization. I think you haven't invested enough time to properly analyse what you have received and understand it.

The email is not asking you to give these documents. It is asking you to prepare them if you think you could win any award. As all of you know, CPCRetroDev is an event hosted and organized by the University of Alicante. This is a public institution, and things in such an institution have to be performed strictly according to legality. And according to legality we cannot pay you a prize without things like a proof of your identity, a registration in the providers database of the institution and a Certificate of Tax residence if you are from outside Spain to prevent double taxing. When things are made strictly legal, you have to declare your prizes and pay your taxes, and the University has to do the same.

I understand many people in the community may be used to constests organized in a much more familiar way. But this is a public institution and we are bound to do everything strictly according to legality.

What you think is strange, is in fact completely normal. In fact, we have had many problems in the past (and in present) to deliver payments whenever any of these documents is not present or not perfectly matching what it should contain. Each payment here has to pass through several different filters, and they are really strict.
