C64

The Commodore 64 is an 8-bit home computer released by Commodore International in August 1982. Preceded by the Commodore VIC-20 and Commodore MAX Machine, the C64 features 64 kilobytes (65,536 bytes) of RAM with sound and graphics performance that were superior to IBM-compatible computers of that time.

It is commonly referred to as the C64 or C=64 and occasionally known as CBM 64 or VIC-64.  It has also been affectionately nicknamed the “breadbox” and “bullnose” due to the shape and colour of the first version of its casing.

During the Commodore 64’s lifetime, sales totaled 30 million units, making it the best-selling single personal computer model of all time.

BabyGang

Back when I was 15-16 there was a Group called ‘BabyGang’ based in France and a little known fact, there was a group in the UK too…

I was asked if I could knock up two intro’s for cracks for games. Unfortunatley, the intro’s never got used and as far as I’m aware the UK based BabyGang faded into oblivion…

Frixxion

[On Hold]

What is this?

Well I wanted to write a C64 game but never got around to it, until now.

I got the idea from TMR/Cosine (well he bugged me into starting the game, and gave me some suggestions) and gave me some test graphics, then Andy Vaisey jumped on board and designed me some more graphics for it.  I spoke to cadavar and asked him if he’d allow me to use one of his tunes, to which he said yes.

I am keeping a ‘diary’ of sorts about it’s creation.  Read it here…

I’d written various little bit of software/routines on the c64, but wanted to release a game, so using some of the little bits of software I’d written from yester-year I started to build Frixxion.

With it only being a hobby (with having a full time job) it has been a slow process, but will get finished!

Keep watchin this space; the game will be coming soon!!!
