Amstrad CPC demos showed at the Euskal Encounter 21 and a new adventure game

-

KaosOverride showed two Amstrad CPC demoes at the Euskal Encounter 21 meeting (25-28 July 2013 in Spain (northern coast): Phortem by NoRecess and Still Rising by Vanity in front of 5.000 attendees.

Kaos Override also showed his adventure game at the "Open Game Compo" of the meeting and won against productions made ??for smartphones, PCs.

This adventure game "Marron en la Euskal" (Big problem at the Euskal) was made possible thanks to the graphics libraries made ??by Artaburu. In this game you are a helper of the party, that lost some flash drives full of demos that are indispensable for the scene contest.

For the moment there is only a spanish version of this game, an international version should follow.

Surgery of an Amstrad CPC modified with 2 CRTC

-

If you arent afraid of some blood, here are 3 photos of the inside of a modded Amstad CPC with 2 CRTC. Which make me wonder what would be a heavily modded Amstrad CPC that everybody would love to own. If you have some ideas, write it in the thread I opened on CPCWiki.

Welcome back to Coutances, home of the ReSeT #0 meeting, organized by the tireless Eliot. I arrived this Friday just in time for lunch.

Sadly Eliot either doesn't own a watch or he still need to learn to use one, meals are good but never at the good hour that old men like me needs. So the meal started at 3:00pm with the first persons arrived.

At least Eliot has one big quality, he is very courageous : he isnt afraid of Escherichia coli, just look at part of our meal.
