Thumbs up Diggers Remake!

Thanks to Mashu, Diggers is being remade for the modern PC!

Believe it or not, Diggers is my favourite game ever, and when I found out about this project ages ago, I was over the moon!

More details can be found here...

and some screenshots can be found here...

Thanks Mashu!

Excellent news, I used to have Diggers on my CD32 and played it a lot.

I'd love to be able to play the PC version, but it doesn't include that awesome CD32 background track, plus the game runs too fast on a modern PC to be playable. Same goes for Extractors. I have the original PC disc of Extractors, but the game just runs too damn fast.

I suppose one may be able to slow it down with that DosBox, but I've not really checked that out yet.

Mashu recently updated his game engine to play the .mp3 versions of the original CD32 tracks. \o/

Old Diggers were running in DOS mode. Remake will probably run from Windows and will have some improvements over original (better gfx, sfx)...
