Thanks to the amazing efforts of contributor Allan Pinkerton, two more unpreserved C64 titles have now been preserved in the form of the final missing Playwriter title – Castles and Creatures (which goes now with the other titles preserved in April), but also a previously unknown title from Micro Learn called Myths, Magic and Monsters.
