Scene news: Our latest web-discoveries concerning D42 and Leo 2
Written by Poison

Spanish retro-blog “Commodore Plus” has published two extensive reviews of the D42 – Adventure System and Leisure Suit Leo 2. Those of you who know some Spanish might want to have a look. And for those who refuse to learn any foreign languages: There are some photos and screenshots, too. :)

Virtual Dimension has once again done some field maintenance with “Vor Ort”, this time on Gamescom 2014. You can watch their entire report on retro computing on YouTube.

Impatient folks can fast forward to minute 10:47 where you can see the D42 Adventure System presented to you by our very own, suit-clad Out of Order expert Volker Rust. You can catch the occasional glimpse at Leisure Suit Leo 2, too.


The last time the folks at Virtual Dimension visited us on the spot was back in 2003 was at Vision Party. Those of you who want to indulge in more memories should stop by our press column and browse through reviews and videos.

D42 – Adventure System for the Commodore 64/128 released!
Written by Poison

Out of Order Softworks and Protovision present the D42 – Adventure System, a construction set which allows any C64 enthusiast to develop sophisticated graphic adventures in the style of Crime Time, Soul Crystal or Leisure Suit Leo 2, without requiring any programming skills.

For all collectors out there, we offer a top-class limited edition in an extra large box. In it, you’ll find an extensive, high-quality print manual in German language and a classy floppy disk with a transparent cover. The detailed documentation takes you by the hand and gives you useful hints and tricks, guiding you step by step towards creating your first own adventure game.

The D42 Adventure System software is free of charge and is available as a download directly on our product page for you to try out! An English software version of the system is included and working on PAL-machines.

You can also get the German manual in your local bookshop or on Amazon. An English language version of the manual might appear some day in the far future.

Scene news: Reset magazine issue #4 released
Written by Poison

Reset is a free “C64 only” PDF magazine with a focus on gaming.

On a whopping number of 78 pages you can find, for example, up-to-date test for…

  • Commando Arcade from the Group Nostalgia – a surprise hit that should be part of any C64 game collection!
  • Guns & Ghosts from the creative duo of Georg “Endurion” Rottensteiner and Trevor “Smila” Storey, which you can obtain at Psytronik or RGCD and which we have already warmly recommended in a previous Protovision newsletter.
  • Bellringer III from Geir Straume, which has an 80’s charm and a gameplay in the tradition of hunchback.

As well, our 4 Player compilation (that has been sold out in the meantime) was tested extensively on the latest Amiga User Group (#CommodoreClub) meeting in Melbourne.
Sold out? Yes. But do not worry. You can still get the games individually as downloads (Bomb Mania, Hockey Mania, Team Patrol) or even as limited edition (Tanks 3000) from our shop.
