A trip to my local computer shop (Level Up Games) in Canterbury usually unearths a few C64 gems from time to time, but this time in the bargain bin – I noticed a few C64 disks sitting loose. Most were blank, and were likely to have backed up games on – but you never know what you might find.
Apart from some KCS Power Cartridge backups (thanks Jason Kelk for the heads up about the odd backup format), there was an odd set of Graphic Adventure Creator files labelled “BRECONSTREET”.
Loading it up shows what seems to be a home attempt at making an adventure game, which was getting on well – apart from a few odd instruction sequences required to make much progress. I ended up collecting several presents, but not knowing up to put under the tree!
It is very unlikely to be complete, and was probably mapped around the author’s home at the time. Date wise, the game is probably from about 1990-91 – due to some of the file back ups that were present. The author we believe was a chap called “Nathan J”. Hopefully by chance the author may look online for his game and come across this page.
So just a small piece of homebrew preserved. Along with the game are some BASIC programs of what seems to be the start of a Cricket and Football game that never made it. Really simple stuff, but included so its out there.
If you know anything about this really obscure adventure game – please let us know!
