Progress of Sam’s Journey
10.01.2017
Written by JTR

Sam’s Journey has reached an important milestone: Knights of Bytes have created 60 level segments that will make up Sam’s world, and populated them all with enemies and items now. A total of 4332 (!) objects have been placed into the maps.

While the levels are now going to be reviewed by testers, Knights of Bytes are moving on to the next todo on the list: boss fights!

On the production front, the bonus items to be included into Sam boxes have been decided upon and custom box inlays are currently being designed to „host“ all items adequately.

NEWS FROM THE C64 SCENE: Upcoming RPG: Unknown Realm
Written by JTR

A new C64 role playing game is in the making. It was launched into a Kickstarter project and has already collected an impressive amount of money for it! We have of course backed the project already and wish Stirring Dragon Games all the best with their effort!

Just like Knights of Bytes with Sam’s Journey, they have been working fulltime on the project.

Check it out here and back it so that the stretch goals are reached, including a musical score by Chris Hülsbeck:

Sneak Peak: Sam’s Editions
07.10.2016
Written by JTR

Knights of Bytes and Protovision are happy to announce three editions of Sam’s Journey that will be available through the Protovision shop when the time has come:

– Boxed Disk Edition 45.00 Euros
– Boxed Cartridge Edition 55.00 Euros
– Download Edition 19.99 Euros

Sam’s Journey will be the first game to feature our new fully printed cardboard boxes. Within the box you’ll find a colored manual (almost the same size as the box), an equally sized world map and further goodies to be revealed later on. The only difference between the Disk and Cart versions will be that the cartridge version saves automatically while in the disk version saving is triggered through a menu.

A new version of the C64 emulator Vice is currently being worked on that will support GMod2 (That’s the cartridge Sam uses) so emulator users will be able to play the cartridge version.

Protovision on Gamescom
16.09.2016
Written by JTR

Together with our friends in Out of Order Softworks, we shared a booth at Gamescom – featuring a huge printed C64 screen with a blinking cursor and of course a possibility to play our games – including the upcoming Sam’s Journey!

Such a trade fair is an inexplicable experience. Magical things happen there.
For example, a guy came to our stand and played our games, then presented a C64 disk and said he wanted to have a look what’s on it.

labyrinth2We found a complete and unreleased C64 game on it that he wrote in 1989!

We will keep you informed about the release of this game… it’s a two player split screen Pac Man game with level editor.

We also pre-released a couple of fine product updates on Gamescom – more on that below.

More Protovision games at itch.io
Written by JTR

As we cannot sell downloads to non-Germany-based-customers through our shop, we started to offer our downloads also via itch.io where they are available to everyone.

Now, *all* Protovision downloads are also available on our itch.io page!

We also created PC/OSX Emubundle versions of most of the games so you have the possibility to run the games on such unworthy computers more easily.
