Well, another year has passed and when preparing for this update, I realised that it had been almost 12 months since the last full update. Sorry about that! Hopefully reasons are now a lot clearer as to why that was! 🙂

Once the dust settles a bit, then we will be back in full trying to recover and preserve more lost C64 titles and make up for lost time. We are also starting to create and add videos to some of the entries as something a bit extra.

Many thanks to all our contributors for this update, including in particular Fabrizio Bartoloni, Csaba Virag, Hedning/GP and Jazzcat who contributed a lot to this update and for Vinny Mainolfi for all his support. All the best for 2020 and hope you enjoy the update!

Dungeons of Doom recovered and released

With kind thanks to the developer and publisher of the game, Brian Harvey, Dungeons of Doom has been recovered and fully preserved. An obscure title that only seemed to have a handful of sales, now can finally be enjoyed:

2 early previews recovered

Thanks to Csaba Virag, two new previews have been recovered and added to the archives, including the long lost Novatrade Tetris development:
