Puggs in Space

I had a non playable demo of this game onmy a600 and it looked really cool, however i cannot find any references to it anywhere and have not managed to find a copy on ebay.

Does anyone else remember this cool game or know where i can get a copy???

As far as I remember, Puggs in Space was a demo, that later originated the game Puggsy. The character in the demo is the same of that game.

So I dont know if there is a game called "Puggs in Space", I think you might be looking for Puggsy. And you can find copies fo that one on eBay a-plenty (That's how I got mine )

Correct

Dionysus used PUGGS IN SPACE to show software companies what they could do, all members of Dionysus went to work for Psygnosis who then resurrected their character in Puggsy..

Not quite....There was going to be a Puggs game commisioned by Psygnosis after the demo was taken in to them. After Tim Wright and Lee Carus went to work for Psygnosis full-time, the Puggs game died out. A couple of years later, it was resurrected and we got Traveller's Tales to do a game based on the character on the Megadrive and Mega-CD. The megadrive version was then converted to the Amiga.

I can ask Tim about the original if anybody is still interested.

HAHAHA! Just seen the demo for the first time in ?12? years! The memories!

When puggs does the "puggsaroony" to the beatbox; then it can't start up the UFO. Finally there's the washing machine inside and the nuke button - good old classic demo humour!

Wonder if they ever got the hot chick with loads of money winning the spot the pixel compo and spending the day with them............
