New software 2018

Post by R-Tape »

This sticky will be to keep a concise list of new software during 2018. Please post new games as they are released and we will add it to the list at the top.

This is not intended to replace new games getting their own thread, in fact we’d like to see more of them. Some authors are already announcing their stuff here, but if you hear of a new game and don’t think the author is likely to post it, then start a thread with links and pics.

I think Raiders of Lost Ark was actually released on December, 31 here: https://www.facebook.com/groups/7857758 ... 272838612/

And here: http://arcadegamedesigner.proboards.com ... m-released

Maybe there's some confusion with timezones, but that's how it looks for me.

Does anyone know what other name the loading screen author AGOD goes by? (I don't know if AGOD/Level64 needs a new entry)

I did a googling and found that the loading screen author is Domingo “Almighty God” Álvarez, member of Level 64 (demo group)

Sometimes I feel like a Robobocop humanesque following Google Inc. prime directives. It's better that you stay analogue human altogether asking Robocops around here and sozialising with game developers by email.. as a developer you may even like assault other game devs...

Hi Dave! Finally the ZX Dev is over and we got 18 superb games!! I am really happy about it :)

These days are being super busy family and issue-wise, but in a few days I will come back to share things here from the Dev ;)

Thank you guys for making this incredible compo :)

Wow, 21 games in a month, most above average and some AAA.

I know the ZX Dev deadline is the main reason for that but that's still quite an achievement.

I believe that Apulija-13 V2.0 should also be added to the list, although it is not a completely new title, but an extensive reworking of an existing one. What do you think?

Do you mean the list in this thread? I agree and it's already there.

It's also already in the ZXDB spreadsheet and will appear on the site in the next update.
