8-bit Annual digital versions free
« on: 13:27, 22 March 20 »
Just thought I’d let everyone know that the 2018 and 2019 8-Bit Annuals are very generously being made available for free at the moment. There’s plenty of CPC related goodness in there so grab ‘me while you can!

I bought the PDF for 2018, but missed completely 2019.

I barely skimmed through these, but I think it is interesting because the KS for Blast Annual 2020 Volume 1 is still on and I think they need more backers.

It is not my cup of tea, but I encourage everybody to check the PDFs and back 2020 annual if they like what they see!
Released The Return of Traxtor, Golden Tail, Magica, The Dawn of Kernel and Kitsune`s Curse for the CPC.

If you like my games and want to show some appreciation, you can always buy me a coffee.

I think a lot of these projects never get enough attention - and it's not because there's no interest.
It's just that the people who has the interest have no time, so they "plan" on "checking it out later".
Weeks quickly become months and even years. Time just fly by.
And then some day when they finally have time, the project obviously died.

Yes, backing and supporting various (any) CPC-related project should be on the ToDo list for all of us who has any interest in keeping the CPC alive - even if you know you won't actually be enjoying the project(s) any time soon yourself.

Must admit though, that I personally feel there are too many of these multi-systems paper mags around. I prefer one (smaller) mag that is only oriented around the CPC - especially if it was a diskmag!!!   ;)  Just mentioning that here, in case it slipped anyone's mind.  :D

Had a look at them. Both great productions. However, lots of grammar and spelling errors. But the coming issues some "reviewers" should volunteer.  :)
