Happy Birthday RGCD!

Exactly one year ago, the former discmag RGCD was relaunched as a retro gaming news site and publisher - and to mark the occasion our friends Trevor 'Smila' Storey and Jason 'Kenz' MacKenzie (of Psytronik Software) have kindly allowed us to offer their FULL version of the official PC remake of the classic C64 shoot 'em up Armalyte for FREE download (for the next 24 hours only).

In addition to this, Trevor has also sent in three signed copies of the boxed version of Armalyte as prizes for our 2012 C64 16KB Cartridge Competition, making the jackpot even more attractive to potential entrants!

Right, I'm off to grab a celebratory beer. Thanks to everyone whose contributed, commented, linked and shared our news and reviews over the past year - you guys are awesome!

Note to people using AVG who reported a virus within the archive - AVG have confirmed that this was a false positive and have now updated their virus definitions file. Update your copy and the warnings will go away! :)


  1. Oh hoho! Happy Birthday! :)

  2. Happy birthday!

    I bought Armalyte when it first came out and the game worked fine in Windows 7 but now it runs double speed. Anyone I can contact to talk about that?

  3. woohoo! but I didn't get you anything... D:
    Happy Birthday :)

  4. Happy birthday guys, keep up the awesome work!

  5. Hi guys. I've just checked out the file with an up to date version of Avast and it's got a clean bill of health. It might just be a false positive from AVG.

    Thanks for all the birthday wishes!

    Donncha- regarding your speed issues you could contact Kenz from Psytronik on

  6. Nice! Excellent birthday present, well done! :)

  7. Happy birthday and thanks for the game.

  8. You may have not intended to do so, but I think you have managed to express the state of mind that a lot of people are in. The sense of wanting to help, but not knowing how or where, is something a lot of us are going through.
