October at c64.sk

Written by Wotnau / Dmagic

Well, another nice month. This time there were 34 Alpha-News items full of Commodore activity. Let's go for it!

Creativity

The biggest new game is It's Magic 2. You can order it from Protovision (more info on their site). The free October games are Space Battle 2.1 by Jan Boettcher and the 4th preview of Richard Bayliss' Balloonacy. And Nostalgia brought you the first disk version of Ocean's Double Dragon cartridge. And of course you can still download the Minigame compo pack. SID music lovers will want to check out A New Life – a music collection by Kjell Nordbo of Blues Muz', and Reincarnation, Da Funk's collection released under Tempest. HVSC update #28 got released. Are you after demos released in October? Mermaid released Oldskool, also there's Triad/Lucy, updated Demonstration 1/Welle: Erdball and also Purple by Coma got finally released to the public. Keen readers among us were pleased to meet Beergarden #8, Arachnophobia #22 and Domination #16. Nice magazines indeed. Following the player tide of the last month, Cadaver released GoatTracker 0,9 (now v1.2 – cmd) a PC-based editor of C=64 music (yuck!). Soon afterwards, Umba Sid called the GoatTracker compo, a kind of evaluation event for the player. Much more important than the results of the compo will of course be the opinions of the competitors on the possibilities of the tool. And another SID tool for you – SID Duzz'it V1.3 by Grg/Shape. Samar is still up to their fast pace, this time they released Rigid – a samples collection. Cuneiform 0.11 Beta joins the crossplatform tool family – it's a C64 char creator for Windows.

Scene Buzz
 

In October, you were invited to BCN Party '01 (Barcelona), the Commodore meeting in Holland, and you were linked to the Willow Party and Phat '01 releases & results. And MacGyver and Svan got interviewed by CreaMD, our editor-in-chief, to bring you another exclusive interview/report, this time from the Symphony party. Another ambitious project is creating a huge demoscene history book. We informed you about it, check it out for yourself.

Society

Just two news from the society this time, both sad. Mr. Alpha, one of the great guys behind Nostalgia, officially left the scene. Much luck whatever you'll do from now on! And AEG seems to be out of time for the C=64, including Turrican III. It seems that this name is just haunted. So Turrican III will probably enlarge, for the second time in a row, the pile of unfinished big projects.

Gonna Go Over There?
 

They're coming closer! Who? What? X 2001, The Party 2k1 – you can join THE BUS to reduce your costs! – and Radwar 2002!

Reviews

Umba SID brought his opinion on the two music collections – A New Life and Reincarnation. And The Dark Judge of Focus brought the latest demos to his Dark Court. (Welcome in the Staff, TDJ, – cmd) This highly controversial article provoked over 70 reactions. In the beginning it was just the usual hollow and empty comments like „I'd rate this higher and that lower“ but later on it developed into a very interesting dispute about pornography, nudity and their relationship to computers and the demoscene in particular. It's sure worth your interest.

Have a nice November!
