RGCD Cartridges Back in Stock / Upcoming Releases
As some of you have already noticed (thanks guys for the orders!) many of our formerly out-of-stock games are now available to buy again. Hot off the assembly line, Super Bread Box, Bomberland, C64anabalt, Guns 'N' Ghosts, Powerglove and Rocket Smash EX are back on the virtual shelves in our online store. While you are there, make sure you check out P0 Snake and Gravitrix - we're down to our last few copies now - and when they've gone, they're GONE!
While I'm here talking about C64 cartridges, it's probably worth mentioning our upcoming games. Jam It by Throwback Games is currently being remastered to load faster from cartridge, and then it's off to the print shop for the box inserts (illustrated by none other than Oliver Frey) - so that'll be available in the next few weeks. After that, we've got the final version of Moonspire sat here waiting to go, and literally just today the final 64KB version of Tiger Claw arrived in my inbox. This one's going to be a real prize for those C64 in Pixels Kickstarter backers, as not only have we commissioned a special piece of new artwork for the box, but we've also completely packed out every last byte of the cartridge space, with not one, not two, but THREE easter eggs for you to find! ;)
Note that if you missed out on the Kickstarter, you can still contact Chris Wilkins of Fusion Retro Books directly and ask to pre-order a copy of the book and Tiger Claw cartridge - we've yet to issue him our final invoice so there's still time left! (Not much though!)
Finally, some bad news... The blue cartridge shells we used for both The Vice Squad and Mollusk Redux are no longer available, so those two are now officially out of print. Maybe one day they'll appear on a compilation (which is something we *are* considering for our older titles), but for now that's it!
