NEW PSYTRONIK Release:Theater of War Trilogy (Available now)

Postby Ghislain » Wed Jun 19, 2013 3:19 pm

The games I made in the past 3 years (and those I finally polished and completed from 20-25 years earlier) are going to be available for purchase at Psytronik in a nice package, printed instruction sheet as well as an easy-to-access main game menu.

----------------------------------------------------------------------

Psytronik and System IIII presents the THEATER OF WAR TRILOGY for the Unexpanded VIC-20. This game lets you recreate battles from the First or Second World War.

This commercial release includes 12 games and programs: Theater of War I, Theater of War II, Theater of War III, Break-Fast II, Face VS Heel, magiTOOL, Olympic Dash, Space Warz, Street Battle, VICroLeague Wrestling I, VICroLeague Wrestling II and Worm-Out.

You can purchase a commercial copy of the game with it's own jewel case and instruction sheet at http://www.psytronik.net (coming soon)

Theater of War is a gripping trilogy of turn-based strategy games for the unexpanded VIC-20 by Ghislain de Blois, authour of the popular Realms of Quest RPG games. As well as the three 'Theater of War' games this compilation also contains a bonus selection of arcade games (see below for complete list).

The Theater of War trilogy features three complete campaigns to play - WW2 Eastern Front, WW2 Pacific Theater and WW1 Western Front. The games put you in command of military units and allow you to recreate battles from the first or second World War.

Select your units, deploy your forces, and let battle commence!

The Premium Disk version of Theater Of War is presented in a 5.25" plastic disk case and features full colour glossy cover artwork by Steve 'STE'86' Day. The floppy disk is packaged in a full colour glossy disk sleeve with a full colour label.

THEATER OF WAR DISK CONTAINS:

• THEATER OF WAR I (WW2 Eastern Front)
• THEATER OF WAR II (WW2 Pacific Theater)
• THEATER OF WAR III (WW1 Western Front)
• BREAK FAST II
• FACE VERSUS HEEL
• MAGITOOL
• OLYMPIC DASH
• SPACE WARZ
• STREET BATTLE
• VICROLEAGUE WRESTLING I
• VICROLEAGUE WRESTLING II
• WORM OUT

Note: All games are compatible with the unexpanded VIC-20!

To buy a physical copy of the game on disk with instructions printed on the cover inlay all of which is placed inside in it's very own plastic jewel case, go here http://www.binaryzone.org/retrostore/in ... cts_id=612

Go here to get a lower-priced budget disk-only version (with a loose printed instruction sheet) http://www.binaryzone.org/retrostore/in ... cts_id=613

Well, thanks!

It will probably sell a modest amount, at least compared to my previous Psytronik release. But my main motivation isn't money, but to get to hold my creations in my hand. Plus, the artwork for the packaging is really cool.

What else did you get with your order? I presume that when people order from Psytronik, they usually order a batch of games because of shipping costs.

I also got my copy yesterday. It's pretty cool to hold it in my hands like a music CD or album.

I buy individual games from Psytronik, but then I live in the UK so the shipping is only a few quid.

I've bought every VIC-20 release to date and a few C64 titles. I'm looking forward to the new Carling game that's due to be released on the C64.

Even though I have both the tape and disk versions of Carling the Spider, I use the digital download version most of the time which runs very nicely on the SD2IEC.

Same for me - I buy disks for collection purposes, but then download the games and put them in my SD card.
