And – like last year – you can again participate and vote for your favourite production in the categories demo, intro, game, technical achievement, graphics and soundtrack. The votes are open till the 31st January 2015, so don’t hesitate and fill out the form at Push’n’Pop (you need to be logged in).
Xyphoe, well known for his great Amstrd CPC game videos on Youtube, just uploaded a new video in which he celebrates the 30th anniversary of the Amstrad CPC 464. This one hour video features Darran Jones, Larry Bundy Jr. and Steve Benway, who altogether look retrospectively back at the history of the CPC 464, the CPC games, the competition with the Commodore 64 and the Sinclair and the actual development of course. Thanks for this great video Xyphoe!
Push’n’Pop published an article about the community Amstrad CPC projects for 2014 and 2015. You will find a lot of software here and see that the Amstrad CPC users are still active :). There are some new demos on the way, there are some games in production and you can expect some new hardware, too. Toms and Hicks try to keep the list up to date, so if your project is missing, you should write them and change that.
You can find the list in the articles section of Push’n’Pop.
Homebrew.at is a new website which is dedicated to Amstrad CPC indie games. All games are featured with some screenshots, a description and a short review. See for yourself and go to Homebrew.at.
