Sam’s Journey Production Update
Written by JTR

We are thrilled now that we have received the first load of Sam boxes fresh from the factory!

The boxes turned out even better than we hoped. The surface is quite durable
and relatively water resistent. The boxes are robust… and finally they are real
carboard boxes like we always wanted them to be! Like in the 80s, only cooler!

The boxes (and a lot of other things in the final distribution of Sam) are hand made.
They are also not ready as such, because we don’t want any cartridges or disks to
fly around in the box. Therefore, we put so-called inlays into these boxes that hold
what’s inside. The design of the inlays (they need custom made implements to
make them fit) is ready and along with the boxes we have also received the
first couple of hundred inlays.

And that means the next step in the production is beginning for us now:
we have to glue the inlays into the boxes! We were testing out numerous
glues until we found one that suits Sam, however we are good to go now!

In the end, every piece of Sam’s Journey will be a unique labour of love.

Forum64 & Protovision Game Competition 2017
Written by JTR

The Forum64 Game Competition has been very successful and a lot of fun in the past years.

It now has a new name: Forum64 & Protovision Game Competition or F64PGC 2017 for short!

The compo is still organized by same guy as before, namely TheRealWanderer (welcome our newest member!) and the rules are almost unchanged, but now you can also sign up at the Protovision homepage. A Forum64 account is not required, making it easier for participants around the world to take part in the compo!

Everyone who hands in a game will receive a Protovision 5 Euros voucher for downloads and has a chance for a bigger monetary price. In addition, the winner receives his own game in a fully printed cardboard box. All games handed in will be available for free on our website. We might want to develop some of the games further and make them a physical release later on.

This year’s competition is all about SPORTS GAMES.

The compo starts NOW (1st of July) and runs until end of April 2018.

Signing up is open until end of October.

If you cannot enter the compo with a game entry but want to support it, there is a donation button on the compo page.

All money collected will be passed on to the participants!

4 Player Interface soon available again
Written by JTR

The popular Protovision 4 Player Interface is sold out everywhere and we are flooded with questions as to when they will be available.

It looks like they will be available again early/mid August!


Shop Update
Written by JTR

We have overhauled our shop system!

If you buy downloads, you will receive a direct link via email now. If you buy physical versions, you will receive download links for the games as well (when the download versions are available – we usually release physical first, later digital).

If you bought a physical game and didn’t get the digital version, just drop us a mail and we’ll send it to you.

Tracking your shipment is also made easier: a tracking link is integrated in your order history now.


Empty disk packs available again!
Written by JTR

New 5,25″ DD disks for the C64 are rare these days, and we are often asked where to buy them.

Luckily, we can offer disks to you again now!

We got hold of a couple hundred unused, new disks that we can give away.

There are also some other new hardware items that you can discover in our shop.


News around Sam
Written by JTR

As the release is slowly approaching, we are now accepting preregistrations for Sam’s Journey on our in development site!

Chester Kollschen, the coder of Sam’s Journey, was interviewed in February by Commodore Plus.

Sam is, by the way, still happily jumping, striking and throwing around items. We had issues with the first cardboard boxes printed (the printing house had zoomed our input files), but they are resolved now. We will soon disclose pictures of the box and some of the feelies.
