New software 2018

Post by R-Tape » Tue Jan 02, 2018 7:19 pm

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)
