New QL Cyberpunk Adventure Game Released

Post by vanpeebles » Thu Jan 09, 2020 11:59 am

Here is my long awaited (I hope) QL adventure game completed game (at last!) For you all to enjoy for free, I've also included the source files, design manual, my working notes, and box art, and the animated intro! The full pack can be downloaded at :

It was created using ACT and took me years!

I've decided to try and make this, a complete a package as possible. It's bundled with the following:

The original game, with title screen, border and boot file.
The animated intro as a gif file, and all the individual slides as png files. It was my intention to convert each png to an scr file, and make a superbasic animated intro to start before the main game. (Similar to the Christmas I made some years back) I wasn't sure if I'd manage this on an stock 128k QL.
The box art design as png files, with front, rear, and side stickers. (If anyone does make the boxes, please send me one!)
The box manual as a leaflet, this was originally to be A5 with two copies printed back to back on an A4 sheet.
The original source code as ACT build files are all included, so you can build your own version of the game, or edit my modules for use on your own games if you have ACT (this would be great).
A huge PDF design document detailing the whole game in detail, this was built up over a number of years. LOADS OF SPOILERS!
JPG photo images of my working notes, the hand written ones I used as I code the game in ACT. Excuse the hand writing. LOADS OF SPOILERS!

I know you've been working on this a while, but I do have to mention I left a Eurogamer article titled something like 'Will Cyberpunk 2077 rekindle the Cyberpunk genre?' to come directly to this! I guess its never really gone away..? Looks like a really nice package, will have a proper look tonight, my first ever QL emulation..

I think I started on it, maybe end of 2014. My main influence was the film 20 Minutes Into the Future and also Brazil. I liked the idea of an alternate Universe with a company building all kitted out with different types of QL machinery.
