If you pick up a copy of this month’s The MagPi (or click here) and turn to page 29, you’ll see a lovely little mention of SCUMM-8 in print! 😀
It’s part of a great article (written by K.G. Orphanides) on how to “Make your own Video Games”, and covers a selection of: websites, engines & tools for getting started – including a big feature on the PICO-8 virtual console (which SCUMM-8 was made with).
It was a great feeling to know that other people appreciate and enjoy something that I made – makes the time spent feel even more worth it!
And would you believe it? SCUMM-8 was also in print in Retro Gamer in the same month (but I only just found out)! 😮
If you’re the owner of lssue 185 (“Space Invaders”) cover, turn to the Page 104 and you’ll see my game “CODE-8” (which was built using my SCUMM-8 engine), along with details of several other great entries to the AdventureJam 2018:
Unfortunately, Retro Gamer forgot to include a link to the jam (and apparently didn’t have room to list the authors), so I’ve decided to include all the ones featured below:
- Aye Fair Lady by Charlotte Gore / The Stairfall Institute
- Spy Quest 1 – Mission: SPECTRUM by Steven Don
- Cross Purposes by Stand Off Software
- Nine Survive by Michael Sheail
- 1 New Message by Level 3 Games
- Kinder Morgan by Jim Gerrie
