Uh, is this still on?

Anyway, I've been told that both The Return of Traxtor and Castaway can be ordered online, in cassette format. Traxtor comes in both Amstrad CPC and ZX Spectrum version (one on each side) and Castaway is for the ZX Spectrum only.

They have been available in some user meetings, but now they can be ordered worldwide (at least until the stock runs out, this is a limited edition).

In other news... "The Return of Traxtor" will have physical release (cassette, that is) including both ZX Spectruim 48k and Amstrad CPC versions (pure Mastertronic style!).

I've been told the cassettes will be available for the "Amstrad Eterno" event in Barcelona mid April, but I'm "being published" so I don't really know :)

Also the same publisher is interested in "Castaway", so it may end in cassette too, with a new inlay cover and loading screen.

All my releases are always available as free download, that can be played in emulators or in the real hardware by converting the files into audio files and "playing" them.

These physical releases are just for collectors and ratro-aficionados that fancy having "a little bit more". Retro game development is something I do for fun, so I'm not getting any benefit from these (on purpose; the publisher offered me royalties in a fair deal but I waived them to support even more physical releases).

For more news, watch this space!

And George also reviewed The Return of Traxtor (ZX Spectrum 48k).

Again, explicit and NSFW.

Nice Castaway review.
