Arnaud Bouche is the author of Bitume (CPCRetroDev 2017) and Deeper Warrens (CPCRetroDev 2018). For the CPCRetroDev 2020 he has written Throne Legacy inspired by l'Aigle d'Or (golden eagle) from which you can see some gameplay on Youtube.
The game was written with CPCPower and Titan for intro (and story), Ced for making and greatly improving graphics and SLT for tireless testing.
There are 51 games in competition but you will only be able to see 49 trailers for the CPCRetroDev 2020 on Youtube.
Cheman is the last Amstrad CPC game by The Mojons Twins, cover by kendroock, history by maribip, na_th_an and anjuel, music by David Sánchez (aka Davidian aka Murcian). The game uses the following framework/library : MK1 PSTCRA by The Mojon Twins, Cprslib by Artaburu and WyzPlayer by Wyz.
It looks like a Commando BUT ammunitions are limited, dont play trigger happy or you will burn yourself, use your brain. You will use a joystick or the keyboard (O P Q A for directions, space to shoot, directions + space to push a rock for blocking a laser).
You control Sgt. Helmet who has to perform several missions: traverse the enemy camp (with and without ammonition), rescue the hostages, finding 5 bombs, setting them next to the evil computer, then get back to base, or destroy motorbikes. Use keycards to open closed gates and kill every clone soldier if he stands in your way. You can destroy the barbed wire to progress (but avoid touching them!) as well. But beware! Bullets are prized and you better save them. You can refill your ammo with the magazines you will find across the map – but you better be savvy. Use boulders to block lasers so your ass doesn’t get burned and… GOOD LUCK!

Arcade Game Designer v0.7.10 is a Windows (32/64) utility by Jonathan Cauldwell to write games for Timex/Next, ZX Spectrum, Amstrad CPC, Acorn Electron, Dragon/Coco and Enterprise, without any knowing of programmation.
The big news for the CPC is that it should now allow you to import third-party assembler routines and call them in your game with the USER command (plus an optional argument that gets passed in the accumulator). There is an example user routines directory with a couple of routines suggested by users.

Livingstone Supongo is a mode 0 game by Opera Soft. Nan has made a conversion of this game in mode 1 which you can download a tape image. The translation of the Youtube video is the following : Here is a demo of what is the classic Livingstone I suppose from Opera Soft, but transformed to mode 1 with four colors.
