NEWS AND UPDATES

» February 27th, 2020 - Magnar/Censor Design interviewed
Andreas and Terry is back quicker than the speed of light (umm...) to give you an interview with friend and group mate Magnar of Censor Design. Here's our favourite quote from the interview: "It's a great honour to be interviewed by C64.com." Oh, wait! That's not it. ;) Here it is: "Things were difficult financially after my father passed away, we had huge mortgage costs on the farm, and I knew it wouldn't be easy for my mother to help me reach my dream of one day owning a computer myself, so I decided to work harder and try and save up myself. In the summer months, I asked the nearby farmers if there was any work I could do on their fields, though that barely paid for sweets. But I never gave up on the dream, and having a computer was top of my wish list for every birthday and Christmas. My mother finally stepped in and helped me buy a used Commodore VIC-20 in the summer of 1984. It was equipped with a cassette drive, a joystick and a few games on cartridge."

» February 18th, 2020 - Pad/Genesis Project interviewed
Andreas and Terry is back to give you an interview with our pal Pad of Genesis Project. Here's our favourite quote from the interview: "When I came back on the scene, Magnar let me use CRT's 6510 compiler for some code I wrote in Notepad++. After joining Atlantis, I switched to Kick Assembler to make it easier to share and link code, plus all the other members were using it. So these days, all my coding is done using Sublime and Kick Assembler on the Mac. My definite go-to application for graphics is Pixcen, I love that program, CRT did a great job there. There are also lots of smaller programs I use for different tasks, like PicChar, Exomizer, Marq's PETSCII, Dano's excellent sinus maker called BounceMe, etc." Read the whole interview here »

» January 9th, 2020 - Interview with musician David Warhol
We return with a new interview with musician David Warhol. David are behind titles such as Adventure Construction Set, Bard's Tale II, Pool of Radiance and Ski or Die.

David: "I would always write in the style called for in the game, so for example Pool of Radiance was written in the style of Wagner, the opening to Jetfighter was inspired by the opening to Top Gun before Danger Zone kicks in, and for Mike Wallace's Return To Atlantis, which was an "underwater James Bond", I analysed the famous spy theme down to its molecular core, then changed a few molecules here and there and built it back up to sound like, but not exactly the same as, that famous theme."

» February 21st, 2019 - Zarch/Danish Science interviewed
We are happy to give you an interview with Zarch/Danish Science. We are happy because Zarch is a cool guy and the interview is fun and nostalgic. Just look at this excerpt: "A few weeks later at school, I suddenly saw a police car in the playground from my classroom window. I was sure they were coming to pick me up, because of the stamp incident. I sneaked out of school, ran home, and hid all my disks inside my parents' sofa." That's some funny shit right there! We know that there's quite a few of you who've also had a stamp incident, so please go on and enjoy the whole interview here »
