Taxar was described as a “Mysterious Odyssey” back in 1984, on a loading screen created by game developer Erwin J. Knöll.
The game was highlighted to us by Baracuda, who has recently released a slideshow dedicated to art works by Erwin J. Knöll. Picture 12 shows us the loading screen for Taxar, but unfortunately there is nothing else related to the game. Baracuda later provided an advert screen for the game – which promised a “fast machine code action game”.
At this stage, all we know is that it was being done by Erwin, and for Substract Software – which may have been Erwin’s own label.
It’s early days, but do you know anything more about this game? If so, please do get in touch. Hopefully we can get to learn more from Erwin in the future.
