GTW64 Xmas 2021 update

Thank you to everyone for their continued support to Games That Weren’t this past year, as we conclude with our yearly update (and larger than our usually monthly update). Plenty to digest and check out and hope you enjoy it!

Gyro Shoc released

A little Christmas present to you all, thanks to Sailor and Taper of Triad. This is a game based loosely on ideas from Dropzone and Wizball, and was developed by Chris Young.


This release and update is dedicated to our friend Jason Kelk, who passed away in June this year and who was originally going to tidy up the game for GTW to release.

Rare Vale of Shadows glimpse

Paul Marshall has recently uploaded an amazing video of M.C. Lothlorien from around 1988 time. In the background was the late Martin Holland, and also on show a (albeit blurry) glimpse at his Vale of Shadows work. Something we thought would never be seen again.
