4 months real time

Soulless is a C64 game we just recently finished (and is out for sale since 1st of June). It's a jump'n'run with search elements á la Impossible Mission.
It's been a real blast working on the old machine with all the limitations. The graphician (Smila) and musician (encore) did an awesome job. All in all it took us nearly a year working in private hours.
It was really interesting to work with all the media types. The game is available as tape (with custom tape loader by Richard Bayliss), as (floppy) disk, as digital download and as cartridge. Especially the latter one was intriguing getting all the intro/outro and game into 64 kB.
Unfortunately there's no demo of the game, but it can be purchased at http://www.psytronik...re-64&Itemid=57 For collectors, the bigger editions come with an additional CD, a poster and a full map.
