» January 18th, 2018 - Game Talk with Mihaly Kenczler
Mihaly Kenczler was employed at Hungarian power house Novotrade, and worked on Impossible Mission II and Express Raider. Read about the development of these two games plus more from his short career with the C64. "[I] had to work for money rather than just fun. That was the logistics appeal of Hungary for Western firms: they could hire university-educated people for the sort of money that in their own country would only buy a wet-behind-the-ears high schooler."

» January 1st, 2018 - Game Talk with David Crane
Did you have a nice New Year's Eve? Are you hung over or did you go easy on the refreshments? In any case, the best way to start the year is to read an interview with an industry legend. David Crane is the guy who developed games like Pitfall, Ghostbusters and Little Computer People. He also co-founded Activision. Here's an excerpt of the bit on the creation of Ghostbusters: "Ghostbusters was of course inspired by the movie. But in order to create that game in time to take advantage of the film's success, I had to redesign another game that was already half-finished. I was working on a game called Car Wars, in which you equipped your car with weapons and drove around shooting at other cars, so I changed the weapons to traps and a ghost vacuum, and the car drove around sucking up ghosts."

» December 6th, 2017 - Rocket Ranger added
Sometimes, we'd like to give special games special attention. In Rocket Ranger's case, it's because it's such a complete piece of work with great story, great graphics and many different thing to do and explore. So, we've added Rocket Ranger together with complete credits, 89 screenshot, a touched up inlay scan and a 100 per cent working version courtesy of Nostalgia. Enjoy! Check out the game here »

» December 2nd, 2017 - Natas of Horizon interviewed

» October 19th, 2017 - Five inlay scans added (again)
It's safe to say we love inlay scans! Here's another five carefully retouched inlays for you to enjoy: Classic Concentration, Harvey Headbanger, Harvey Smith Showjumper, The Master of Magic and Wacky Darts. The retouching process takes about 5-18 hours per inlay, sometimes longer. It all depends mostly on the condition of the inlay of course, but also if it was scanned properly. Let's say it's a good idea to clean the scanner glass before scanning and that you have a lot of disk to save the hires scans to. :)
