THE GAME IS NOW RELEASED ON ITCH:

My microPython homage to my perhaps all time favourite shooter “Bosconian” is almost done. This is the full-music track, 30 level follow-up to Pysconian 1984.

So done, that I can promise it will be ready next week, launching with some Black Friday special offers.

Nice soundtrack!!!

Btw, are you planning to port this game to old 8-bit computers? The loading screen would look great. And you could get hi-fi stereo soundtrack music streaming from tape (side B) while you play.

Fun fact: I’ve never owned / programmed a real 8-bit computer. Don’t know first thing about them. Plus the game is coded in micropython, so its a complete rewrite.

The loading screen is nice. Perhaps we should connect a tape drive to Pokitto?


#4

Lol I am actually surprised that we never attempted to make actual cartridges too


#5

Yes, i suggested this already, together with tiny packages and manuals as „special editions“


#6

Would any flash chips be cheap enough for that to be a good idea?


#7

With a pcb + spi flash chip we could actually do cartridges that attach to the PEX header


#8

We don’t even need PEX.


#9

This is a kindly reminder that Pysconian Deluxe is coming tomorrow

This is a sampler from the music tracks, you can change the track in-game (or turn music off) while in the pause mode

Here is a demo of the sound from pure internal speaker:

I was organizing the Black Friday sale, game will be released later today on Black Friday (or during the Black Friday weekend, stay patient!)


#12

Such a shame. Can’t test it - sitting here being ill and with a broken PC - a new one won’t be here before next week :cry:


#13

Get better soon!


#14

Cain’t wait to play this great game game.


#15

Woooooow!!! :heart_eyes:


#16

Great production! How did you make the music?


#17

An amazing logo!


#18

3 commercial songs, 5 Creative Commons 0 (will be listed in the game file), 2 by myself

@bl_ackrain , I love that logo and I would like to use it … but I am afraid it is too close to the original :disappointed:

@jonne everything in this game is close the original the name, the game-play and the graphics, so why not the logo?.
