As pointed out by RGCD itself, it is been a long time since we’ve heard about the ’16KB Cartridge Game Development Competition’, but today they finally sent out the current status.
Basically, there are 8 entries, but only 4 of them seems to have some activity with the developers sending information and a screenshot of the games. Actually, one of them, Vortex Crystals developed by Richard “TND” Bayliss is completed and it was submitted. You can see its screenshot at the top of this post. About the game, James Monkman says: “But yeah, I have to say that I love the simplicity of the design and the fun and frenetic-paced arcade action. Feels like a genuine budget game from the late 80’s. I’m excited to see how this one progresses!”. I am looking forward to learn more about the game and also makes me wonder how Richard Bayliss is everywhere, releasing so much stuff for the Commodore 64! Damn!
Hopefully, all the other seven competitors will be able to finish their games and submit for the competition. The C64 scene will thank you all for the effort!
You will be able to see the other 3 screenshots and detailed information following the link below.
