Re: What Films/TV Have you Watched Recently?

Eureka and Warehouse 13.

Recently completed both box sets with my wife (who NEVER usually watches science fiction) and loved every minute of both series. For want of a better word, just really 'nice' TV. Well acted, well written, fun and feel-good.

[C64 Game] Chiller 2

Finally, Cosine Systems has released my game, Chiller 2! This is dedicated to Cosine's C&C, T.M.R (aka Retro Gamer's homebrew correspondent Jason Kelk) who is still in hospital at the time of release. I desperately wanted him to play test and approve before release and feel bad about releasing it be...

Re: C64 Demo for Jason Kelk

C64 Demo for Jason Kelk

He has been seriously ill in hospital with COVID-19, so being a member of his group 'Cosine', I decided to code a simple little demo to cheer him up. It contains good wi...
