I'm almost in complete disbelief as I've only just been contacted by Chris94 about a brand new dungeon crawler called ' The Shadows of Sergoth ', that is not only a homebrew game, but it's a first person grid based dungeon crawler and made for the Amstrad CPC 6128. Now you may wonder as to why I'm in shock, that's because these types of games as a homebrew are a rarity on the Amstrad (it's mainly platformers and shooters), but from the footage below it looks very impressive indeed!

The unreleased "Armed" for Sega Saturn was recently sold for 2500$ on eBay. The CD image is available, check this clip (a download link is included).

Nice one Retro; you've always got your finger on the pulse everywhere; well, everything "Retro"

I know from our many, many, many discussion that we've had for over a decade now, we both know a lot about various different systems / games from "back in the day" and you have loads of resources that you check daily / weekly to break the latest news

...maybe Neil79 should consider signing you up on his team

Green Beret - Highly challenging retro classic is coming to the Amiga!



Quote:
Green Beret or as some will know as Rush'n Attack was an action arcade game released by Konami in 1985. It is remembered for its Cold War setting and its reliance on the player using mainly a knife to dispatch enemies, although you were able to collect many different weapons including the flame thrower. Green Beret was one of the hardest games I had ever played and yet was one of the games that gave me the best memories! So if you remember this game you'll be pleased to know Green Beret is coming to the Amiga!

@Neil79; as much as I love Green Beret (played the Arcade / C64 versions to death when young) and this is indeed exciting news...

...I've moved your post out of the Ports / Conversions --> Amiga thread

As mentioned in the above thread, it's really for completed ports only, and not work in progress stuff.

@majikeyric; hopefully it's the arcade version you're porting across to the Amiga?

The Elder Scrolls II Daggerfall in Unity - EPIC retro RPG remastered



Quote:
RPG fans and retro gamers alike prepare to have your minds blown, as we've recently come across an announcement by our good friends DSOgaming, that Gavin “Interkarma” Clayton has been working on Daggerfall Unity, and has released the first stable version of it with the main result being Daggerfall Unity now playable start to end! What incredible news this is, as The Elder Scrolls II: Daggerfall was released in 1996 as a fantasy open world RPG and is regarded as one of the most amazing RPG's of all time.. With it being ported over to Unity, you'll be able to experience this wonder with high res textures and high grade visuals and even mouse look!
