Revision2016The Revision demoparty in Saarbrücken / Germany is just over and it was – as always – a great event and some CPC users attend to the meeting, too. We also saw two music entries produced on a CPC which competed in the “Oldskool Music” category.

EgoTrip has released a new game for the Amstrad CPC called “A Prelude To Chaos”. It is an adventure / shooting / collecting / puzzle game and was based on a Spectrum ZX version (but it is much bigger and more complex now).
In the game you play Amy, who was called for help by a village, because an evil Cyborg queen tries to build her base there. You have to find and destroy their generators to prevent the arrival of the Cyborg queen.

The game features nice graphics and music. Be sure to check it out and download it from the CPCWiki forums or at the end of this news.

Augusto Ruiz released a new version of his music tracker, which is written in .NET, so it runs under Windows and systems, which are supported by the Mono .NET runtime. It can be used to write music for Amstrad CPC, Spectrum or MSX systems, so it is a nice tool for cross-development. The assembly source code of the WYZPlayer is included and Augusto is also working on a “port” for SDCC / CPCtelera.

The new version features envelopes for drums, loops to a specific pattern and it is easier to select the drum and sfx channel in the player.

Do not hesitate, download the latest version and test it by yourself!
