It seems that there have been issues for some time with our contact form on the GTW site, with emails not getting sent for at least a few months. This is likely due to security updates on the hosting we are on, which we were unaware of. Things are now working again thankfully!
If you have sent any information to us via the contact form, and have not had a response – this is why i’m afraid. Our apologies to those who have therefore not had a response, and we ask if you could contact us again if you did have any information to submit!
More from GTW64, including a previously unseen platformer preview (in its early days) thanks to Joachim Wijnhoven. It is believed it could be the long lost Kid Saviour game by Roy Fielding… more on that soon! :)
