NoRecess, who is well-known for his demos, tools and also interviews in with CPC sceners, released a work in progress video of his game for the Amstrad Plus / GX4000 computers. It is called SonicGX and obviously it is a Sonic the Hedgehog game and features a framerate of 50Hz and around 40 colours on screen. He plans to show other previews during the development and wants to release the game at the end of 2020. So keep your fingers crossed that we will have a cool jump and run game at the end of next year :-). Until then: subscribe his Youtube channel to get informed about his next previews and enjoy the preview…
Kevin Thacker released a new work in progress version of his Amstrad CPC emulator called Arnold. For this release he did a huge amount of testing, especially for the FDC routines, and wrote a lot of tests to ensure that the emulator behaves just like the real machine.
