So whilst we was elsewhere and MVG was parked so to speak, I started a Retro Game Pubisher business with my mate Darren.

We have published over 10 real physical games for the Amstrad CPC, ZX Spectrum and C64, we plans to release Atari ST, Amiga and at some point maybe even Megadrive and SNES games.

This is the box for the C64 version of a text adventure game.



A cassette of a ZX Spectrum game.



Fell free to have a closer look here www.bitmapsoft.co.uk

Thanks mate.

Lots of hard work. Small reward financially but huge reward mentally.

WOW! Didn't realise you could still get games for these old systems. Great to see you keeping them alive.

I remember spending hours inputting instruction from a magazine into my speccy , Crash I think it was called, just to watch a square ball bounce around the screen. Still have my speccy somewhere I must dig it out.
Hasn't been switched on for over 30 years, what's the chances of it working?

Pretty good if you kept it in a dry storage area.

There have been new Crash and Zzap64 annuals made recently too.

I don't hold out much hope in that case then, it as been stored in garden sheds, roof spaces and any where else I could find over the years along with my Amiga :(

Either way they are easily fixed mate. Never throw them away.
