Name: FAT Swedish V1.0
Author: Commodore & Boray
Released: January 2nd, 2015
Requirements: 8K+ Expanded Vic-20
Description:
For Swedes:
Även om du inte tillhör de lyckliga få som äger en Vic-20 med svenskt tangentbord så kan det finnas tillfällen då du vill ha svenska tecken, och det i enlighet med den svenska PETASCII-standarden. T.ex om du använder en skrivare eller om du vill utbyta filer med en svensk C128 eller C64 med svenskt tangentbord. Detta program ger din expanderade Vic-20 samma typsnitt som en svensk C128 och fungerar med rena basic-program för expanderad Vic-20. Och om du gör ett eget basicprogram som använder svenska tecken så kan du mycket enkelt spara både ditt program och fonten i en och samma fil.

For non-Swedes:
Here is a FAT font for your expanded Vic-20. Works will all pure basic programs for expanded Vic-20.

Name: Lyriktornet 2
Author: Boray
Released: January 2nd, 2015
Requirements: 8K+ Expanded Vic-20
Description:
Random poem parody in Swedish.

Detta är en vidareutveckling av den svenska poesiparodin i Braindead. Nytt är att svenska tecken ingår (genom FAT Swedish), skiftande färger samt att texterna skrollas in. Lite som en korsning mellan demo, pausprogram, skärmsläckare och parodi på högkultur. Antagligen en säker hitt i ett hörn på din coola fest.

I've been quite busy with real life over the past two years, not having much time to embark on new projects for the Commodore VIC-20. However, I've been touching up and refining some of my previously unreleased games over the past few months off-and-on. I wasn't going to release this until I packaged these with a new mini project that I had in mind (more on that later), but I figured that I should put it out now anyway.

For those games made in 1986--these were recovered from a cassette made over the span of a few weeks with the original System IIII group. I did not have a Datassette at home, so I would go to where the other three System IIII members lived (in a housing complex), and would just program the ideas they gave to me. When I recently revisited these games, they were quite slow, so I improved on the programming to make them more playable.

I also made a few games in 1990 that I never bothered to release and they're also included here.

All games made by Ghislain, except where noted.

ADVENTURE WORLD (1986 by Nanuq): A very simple text-based RPG adventure. Included in the collection for posterity.

MS. VIC-MAN (1990): There were so many VIC-MAN games out there, I figured that a 4-maze sequel inspired from the arcade should be made, so here it is.

OPERATION: NATO (1990): Three simple action war games combined into one.

SPACE DESTRUCTOR (1986); A one or two player shoot'em up inspired by those VIC-20 manual type-in programs that were made by Duane Later.

SUMO SMASHER (1986): Should be renamed KEYBOARD SMASHER. Each player uses their respective action keys to bow at the beginning of the sumo match and then proceed to repeatedly abuse said keys to win.

VIC BOXING ASSOCIATION (1986): A PETSCII version of PUNCH-OUT!! You can't just mindlessly press the punch keys to knock out your opponent here -- you have to counter their moves. If the opponent nudges slightly to the left or to the right, you can throw a quick punch to tag him. If the opponent telegraphs a punch by moving widely to the left or right, you should then dodge first and then hit him repeatedly with punches.

VICEYE THE ARCADE GAME (1990): Think of this as a COMPUTE!'s Gazette type-in version of the Popeye arcade game. Tip: make sure that you are facing your enemy Pluto when he throws a bottle at you--only then can you punch it. The firebutton does not control punching -- you can only punch when you successfully punch a bottle or move towards the cans of kale at the top of the screen.

VIDEO QUEST (1986): My earliest RPG game. I also had an idea to make a sequel to this that would feature an overland map, cities, and people to talk to. The game engine wouldn't be as elaborate as Realms of Quest III & IV, but it would have really pushed the boundaries of the unexpanded VIC-20. I might make VIDEO QUEST II some day, but I need a couple of free weekends to do so.
