Revival Studios is proud to announce that they started development and publishing for the Commodore PET home computers. Their first release is a port of their game Avalanche. The game will be the first physical release in years for the aging computer system. Avalanche is a fun action game people can just pickup and play. The player has to shoot the various gems that are falling down from the top of the screen. The gems are marked with symbols and the player has to match up the symbol of his ship with the symbol on the gems. The game will automatically increase in speed, but by strategically shooting gems you can align up to 5 gems in a row to gain points as well as slowing down the game for prolonged gameplay. Game Features: - Available on Cassette Tape and as Free Digital Download - Works on the all PET computers (except PET-2001) - Fast, flicker free, arcade gameplay - Sound support You can see the game running on a real Commodore PET system at: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5BSZTqwrWb0 The game is available on Cassette tape and as free digital download.

Revival was at the weekend here in the UK and I set up 5 Vectrexes on the stand and showed my 2 games plus a host of other games from other home brew luminaries... a few photos of the Vectrex stuff... Full album with all the arcade and other stuff here: www.flickr.com/photos/cnp/albums/72157667176851197
A new retro event is being started up at Wolverhampton Racecourse in May this year. I've just bought a weekend ticket for £20. It will be very much retro compared to that of the other UK events. http://www.revivalretroevents.com/ Anyone fancy going?
I just received a copy of the English edition of the Revival homebrew magazine, Issue #45, which showcases Christmas Carol in a wonderful review by Michael Thomasson, of Good Deal Games. The French edition has another review by editor RayXambeR. Both give the game an 8 out of 10, and offer some very nice compliments. (shucks!) Below is a photo of the two page spread on the magazine, for those who don't have a copy. That said, Revival is an outstanding magazine, published quarterly, covering the homebrew scene of all retro-consoles--including our very own Intellivision scene! It is always a good idea to support their efforts. You can find out more information about the publication on their web site. Thanks to Michael and Cyril--and all other reviewers as well--for giving my game a chance and for taking the time and effort to write their reviews. Thanks also to all who played the game. I'm really overjoyed by the community response. -dZ.
