Dude, you and the team at Gamesthatwerent do more for this community than anyone else I can think of and I feel you don't get too much recognition either. Thank you very very much for another great update. :D

Thanks guys! - was fun putting it all together. And there is already plenty lined up for the new year too. Might need to get some new 1541's in for the disk transferring! :)

Following on from Pluff, after 23 years of being missing on the C64 - Graham Gooch World Class Cricket (what should have been released by Audiogenic in 1991) has finally been recovered and released:

Update also includes a new entry for a title called The Pinz (a cool Othello type game).

Probably the busiest we've been for a while! Next up is a long lost John Vanderaart game called Aurum which was meant for Radarsoft back in 1987.

Image

Found and recovered via a chance copy from a party back in the 80′s and preserved. Not only has it been preserved, but the past few months have seen a painstaking translation job done on the game before releasing it today.
