RCI Easter offer (30/3/99)

R-Comp Interactive have announced a special offer that will run for the Easter period where you can buy either Ankh or Exodus for the reduced price of £19.00, or both for £35.00.

Interested in Emulators? (21/3/99)

David McEwen has made an appeal in the comp.sys.acorn.games newsgroup for anyone who would be willing to have some part in a new Emulator website to come forward. If you would be willing to write articles for or maintain a section covering:

  • Arcade emulation (MAME etc.)
  • Console emulation (NES, Sega Master System, Megadrive, SNES, Atari 2600 etc.)
  • Handheld (Gameboy, Game Gear, PC Engine GT, Lynx)
  • Computer (Ataris, BBC, MSX, Adam, C64, Vic 20, Spectrum...)
  • Emulator news
Or perhaps something else, please get in touch with David. Acorn Arcade and Acorn Gaming have both offered their support, so all we need now is a few volunteers!

ChiOS and ChiBER project put on hold (20/3/99)
