Ah, you just need access to the games, not the physical games themselves? In the mean time, there is a single-filed version on Zimmers you can download and try in your emulator or transfer to a real VIC.

Personally, I'm more looking forward to that day someone uncovers the long lost Fort Apocalypse cartridge. That is a rather good C64 game, and should've been reasonably decent even on the VIC-20, if it did exist other than as vaporware. Now that Bridge has been found (but yet kept out of public), Turtle Bridge is another one I've always had hoped to find.

Yeah sorry about Bridge, not my call though on it...

There's a fair few Synapse vapourware for Vic20 (under the Showcase label), but I actually have FA down via HES in this case so it was another license job.

Yes I want one. I'm not a frequent visitor in this forum so I have not been following this. But I will buy one of course. If not the deadline has passed.

Somehow, games that were advertised more than once ought to have existed, don't they? Of course, as long as we don't have physical proof in modern times, they still remain in the void.

A cut off date was not established yet. We were looking for an expression of interest to get an idea of how many boards would be needed for a circuit board production run.

Once I get final parts list and board layout done, I will post costs.

Don't forget to send us the Close Encounters file image so we can add it too...

Fargoal is on the 30-in-one C64DTV, but it has a bug in the NTSC version which makes it somewhat unplayable. Also, it's only an average C64 game in the context of the whole C64 library, but on the VIC it was the cream-of-the-crop. I actually prefer the VIC version over the C64 version.

Crush is indeed an awesome game, and unique, but it requires having monster cards & the manual on-hand (i.e. there are a lot of commands) so I thought Fargoal would be better suited to a mega-cart.

Either way though I'll be happy.

Thanks for your interest! :D

I believe there will be one "universal" Mega-Cart which will support PAL & NTSC versions of games.

I'm going to try to source a case for the project. Ral-clan has done earlier art work for case which he has graciously agreed to resize to fit case once we have demensions set.
