A newest report follows with parties first as it goes. I had a hires release at Fjalldata party in Finland called 'Catch a Trout', based on an old blues song.
At BBC#14 Party in Berlin, Atlantis had a game of 'Drunken Chopsticks' to train the party goers in finer points of digital Karate chopstick action, code by Qzer0w music by Divertig0 and gfx by Gelsomina, get it here or paint the fence!
Next party was Revision which happened online this year due to the unforeseen bat typhoon which still threatens the population of this planet. Atlantis had a sweet onefile called 'FIGHT!', as everyone should! Code by Doc. Science & Qzer0W with music by Mibri and gfx by the cat!
There was another release following, this time for a csdb 'fun lockdown compo' called 'Gamblers'. Based on true story, really, with code by Doc. Science & Tsurugi with music by Spino2006, the gfx by more cats as usual.
For some print news, your truly appeared in the latest issue #15 of Polish Commodore/Amiga magazine called K&A Plus with a nice selection of different works (thanks to Qzer0W for pic). ♥♥♥♥
You can find the magazine here.
And now some games. Moritz never sleeps so finally 2 games were released recently! The first one is zx spectrum 48/128K version of Moritz on the Autobahn which was mentioned here before. The other one is more recent and absolutely brilliant 'Moritz the Striker', the platform/football action escapade which might also be available on other systems someday soon. Not the last but another great game by Sebastian Braunert and Team Moritz was finalized just a few days ago called 'PI-DENTITY', the most bonkers shooters on this side of the rainbow.
All the Team Moritz games released so far starting with 'Pink Pills' are now in a fashionable catalogue which I assume will only grow in time, you can check it out here.
Not enough Moritz? Well then you're at the right place because there is an online version of a short game straight from wonderland called 'Moritz at the Tea Party'. More Moritz next time as who knows where he goes next? The Shadow knows!

As the year of 2019 is just about over, first check out Atlantis holidays greeting card 'Merry Xlantis' and 1K Intro 'Onef1ler' from 'Under Construction Party' and a cool 4K intro by Qzerow called 'Oldskoolnow' and have a Happy New Year!
And Rusty Pixels chaps have also released a nice holiday greetings demo as well as a fully playable zxnext game called Crowley World Tour.
For the rest of 2019 parties, starting with the Syntax party in Melbourne with several entries. First this Atlantis production, a onefiler PETSCII Demo (PETSCIINEMA) called 'Je T'aime mon monstre', dedicated to Serge Gainsbourg and with code by Tsurugi and music by Divertig0. Check it out here for some monstro love action.
Also, I had two gfx entries, one Amiga piece called 'Davy Jones Floppy'...
...and another being a freestyle gfx called 'A birthday offer you can't refuse'. This one is made in order to celebrate issue 70 of Vandalism News as mentioned next.
While at Syntax, I made another 3 covers for 6 sides of Vandalism News. Too many goodies in there to list but congratulations to VN team for putting out so much content over the years, keep loading!
Now there was also a ZOO 2019 party in Finland for which I had a small contribution with this PETSCII called 'Channel0'.
Demosplash party 2019 came and went and I had another freestyle gfx entry called 'The battle of 1852' which is based on a true story, not mentioned in history books. This is a little warm up for something else commodore related 'thing' currently in progress and planned for the next year. ;)
Lastly, my first entry ever for the Flashparty in Argentina which is mostly an ANSI/ASCII oriented event but I had this freestyle gfx called 'At the Movies', which is also based on a true story, of course.
And now for some Moritz news! Besides visiting his cousin Mortiz in Portugal in 'Moritz on the Autobahn' game, what began as a side game to 'Moritz on the Moon' is now a completely new game called 'Cheesy Chase: Moritz and the mildewed Moon' and I was happy again to provide the cover and illustrations for it. Good news is that 'Autobahn' game will be an exclusive game for 'BLAST 2020 Annual Magazine' hopefully also with additional goodies. There are two cover versions as well. And definitely check this swanky video for Moritz on the Autobahn by Mike Van der Lee.
BoxyMoxy (C64) game is progressing quite well and might be finished soon so more on that later as well as ongoing work on BLAST annual magazine.
21 August 2019
At the Datastorm 2019 party, Atlantis presented a demo which was in works for quite some time now. The most fabled 'Two Sided' was finally released, featuring two sides of demonic|angelic code, music & gfx to possess your C64 in style. ❤
Atlantis was also at a beer & bbq party at Atwoods 2019 and set on display Atlantis co-op demo with Delysid called 'ASOA 2019' which is rather brilliant and even has a little playable game hidden in there (which Qzerow of Atl and yours truly shall expand to more levels soon)!
My gfx entry for Atwoods was this mc titled 'Let's drink and worship cats'!
Then there was Gubbdata 2019 and ATL had an entry called 'Thera' featuring the world famous Atlantian Snail and my last minute gfx entry titled 'Gubba Gubba Hey'.
Older news but goodies still, the Vandalism #69 news was released at Flashback party in Sydney with 6 sides of C64 goodies, I did the disk covers with more skulls and tigers as usual.
While at Flashback, I had two gfx entries, first one was for Amiga, cunningly titled 'Amicat'.
And the second entry was a C64 mc called 'Invasion', of course based on a true story as usual.
At Forever Party 2019, which was about Aliens, I had an aptly named mc entry called 'Alien'.
Some games are next, made a bit of graphics for Horace World Tour, a free Tetris game with multiple modes for ZX Spectrum Next by Rusty Pixels, released together with a 'print it yourself' dvd style cover for the game.
Also, Sebastian Braunert and his chaps are back with more crazy games featuring Moritz of course. I was happy to provide some covers for tapes/posters and similar goodies. The games in question are 'Moritz to the Moon', 'Moritz on the Autobahn' and the most strangest game in the universe as yet, 'PI-Dentity'!
26 February 2019
Party time first! Atlantis did a demo for the BCC Party in Berlin (Feb 22-24), called 'BEEzarro'. It was nice to work on some wonky stuff as usual so congrats to the gang (Tsurugi, Qzer0W, Doc Science, Divertigo, DMD) for frolicking fung ku. You can check the demo right here.
Beside the demo, Snabel blasted a cool SID and I had a petscii entry as well called 'A small Riddle'.
While at parties, I also had this mc called 'BlueJay' released at Compusphere party last November, featuring one of the characters from Space Moguls C64 game.
And while at Space Moguls, which is one of the most richest strategy games on C64, a reminder that it has been released by Protovision and it packs some awesome goodies to assist you in digging some rare materials on Alia Terra!
The box lid art is dedicated to the memory of Jean Giraud aka Gir/Moebius.
Digital Talk 104 came out in December as usual with various news covering all sorts of events on Commodore scene. It also has an interview with those SNAQZ guys about that Dredd game, an interview with Carl about Space Moguls and Tony talks about l'Abbaye des Morts game among many other things, just make sure to grab your favourite German speaking person for the occasion. ;)
The newest 2019 8bit annual is kickstartering but in meantime I have illustrated two winner entries for the compo held by these chaps some time ago. The winning games in question are Space Phantom (cpc) and Chibi Akumas:Tragical Chase (cpc, enterprise, msx), now turned into posters as a part of the winners award, besides some other goodies.
And while at crazy games, I've also drawn some posters/tape inlays for 4 games, two for zx spectrum and two for both cpc/zx - 'Moritz and the meds', 'Mike the guitar', 'Moritz strikes back' and 'Mike the guitar: the shooter!' all games done by the same team - Sebastian Braunert and Uwe Geiken.
Gotta say, these are some brilliant concepts. When someone throws a request for a drawing of a dog with a gatling gun shooting down the medication, then by George (of Vermont) ~ Let's Dance!
For the end, currently working on a C64 game with Antonio Savona , called 'Demonyo'. The game is inspired with something we both like in olde crime/giallo movies and comics of the yesteryear. Something part Fantomas part Diabolik and all Kriminal/Satanik! To be visualised in hires glory with music/sfx by Ald.
