Fantastic looking recent C64 RPG
I wonder if anyone at EAB has purchased games from this company that specializes in keeping C64 gaming alive.


The game here looks amazing.

Holy Shit Fred, that looks incredible !!! Those are some of the best ever hand drawn graphics i have seen on the C64 ( besides the Art competition for the 64 at Breakpoint, although these images are probably even excel those!! ).

I love the story to it too.

I will definately be getting a hold of this game ASAP !!.

Thanks for the link :)

Wow, that looks awesome, i thought Elvira - MOTD was good graphics on the CPC, which it is, but wow.

coze 17 January 2008 14:24

I've seen that game before ... it is indeed awesome. I wonder if it runs on a standard c64 ? I just can't make myself believe :)

A couple screens remind me of a space movie demo with music by Ben Daglish. Very effective use of color. And 14 disk sides and that feature list... Wow, surely was a lot of work.

It works on a standard C64.. but not this one:

i remember having tryed the intro of newcomer;
having never owned a C64, i'm a bit at loss on its use and of emulators too, but if games with this same graphic gameplay and sound would come for windows, i would consider them more than recent games.

Hungry Horace 17 January 2008 20:00

very nice.

a lot of brown - but that's to be expected on a c64.... :lol

Retro-Nerd 17 January 2008 20:15


Have you tried the C64 Pinball Dreams Beta? Looks and plays awesome, i hope Werner van Loo (I know, cool surename!!!) complete it someday.

I thought you didn't like rpg ;)

JDunlap 18 January 2008 06:50

Very nice looking!

Unfortunately, it only seems to be available in PAL. :crying

Even though the game is called New*comer*, this is no breaking new*s* :p
This RPG is around since about 2002.

But as we are on an Amiga forum, I think it is allowed to be some time behind :lol

merman 22 March 2008 14:45

Yeah, Newcomer is very good (and so is Elvira Mistress of the Dark - amazing how they crammed that into the C64).

I've read about Newcomer in Retrogamer.

Retro-Nerd 22 November 2010 18:17

Ultimate Newcomer is coming soon. Interesting improvements for emulator users too. It's DonationWare like Enhanced Newcomer. :)


  • 180+ characters you can interact with, each with his/her own portrait graphic
  • 10+ people who may join you, to make a team of up to 6 members
  • ...or try it on your own, in the extra challenging Solo game mode...
  • 50+ different areas to explore, created with 30+ different graphic sets
  • 100+ cutscenes/situational graphics in-game, that make you feel like you are there
  • 180,000+ words of ingame text, mostly interactive conversations
  • No random encounters
  • Thousands of puzzles and situations to encounter and solve
  • Complex, non-linear gameplay with multiple levels of endings
  • Months or weeks of immersive gaming until you "complete" the game...
  • ...but there will still be a thousand situations, resolutions and encounters you have not seen yet, and 2 more game modes to complete!
  • Animated intro and outro sequences
  • Game controls changed for more comfort for emulator users on PC/Mac keyboards
  • VICE fully supported, extensively tested, no virtual floppy disk swapping, works like a native PC / Mac / Linux game
  • Much faster disk I/O in the 1541 version, compared to classic or Enhanced Newcomer
  • Less floppy disk swapping needed – optimized data layout, area sorting and duplication for all multiple floppy disk versions
  • 1541 version: 11* floppy disk sides
  • 1581 version: 3* DD floppy disks
  • CMD FD2000 version: 2* HD floppy disks
  • CMD FD4000 version: a single ED floppy disk – zero disk swapping
  • IDE64 version: 2 MB installed, "instant I/O", playing from HDD / CD / DVD / CF / remote filesystem (ethernet, USB, or User Port PCLink, via ideserv – IDE DOS v0.91 or newer required for this feature) supported, different data and save devices supported
  • PAL and NTSC Commodore 64/64C/128/128D/128DCr systems auto-detected and supported
  • 6581 and 8580 SID chips auto-detected and supported
  • C128 2MHz CPU mode auto-detected and supported – much faster unpacking for all storage devices
  • SuperCPU 20MHz mode auto-detected and supported – instant unpacking for all storage devices
20 years in the making, there has never been anything comparable for the C64.

I wish the Amiga had things like this... :(

Exile 23 November 2010 02:22

Yep very cool game, still have 2 copies lying around.

Anyone interseted in buying the 'old' enhanced version from protovision (disk only)?

And about werner's pinball game, the snagg is time. yes i know the guy. spoke with him on x2010 again.

pantheman 23 November 2010 18:55

That sure looks cool!!!

khph_re 24 November 2010 02:38

Looks awsome! hope it runs in magic64.

In a similar vain, this looks cool for the amstrad CPC (and we have emulators for that as well)
