We have just released Sqrxz 4 – Cold Cash! Available for Windows (32-Bit), Linux (32-Bit, 64-Bit), Wiz, PSP, MotoMagx, Dreamcast, GCW Zero, MacOS X (32-Bit, 64-Bit) / Intel and Raspberry Pi! Temporary download from here.
Thanks a ton to all involved Retroguru members! Especially Rodolphe Boixel (Thor), Simon Butler, Jan Jensen (Flarfy), Johan Letfors (Vedder) and Alexander Wiklund. Certainly not to forget our porting machines responsible for the initial ports: Frank Wille (phx), Lars Persoon (anotherguest), Artur Rojek (zear), Xavier Vallejo (Indiket), Sergei Kolesnikov (exl) and James Higgs (Jum).
Trailer and own Sqrxz 4 webpage as soon as we come back from Revision 2014. Let us know how far you can get and share your progress with us!
Hate mails, love mails, donations – everything welcome!
The gamedev competition at Revision 2014 had 10 game entries, few of them were fine, few of them were not. We update you as soon as results are out!
With pleasure we teamed up with Dreamcast.es and can offer free floppy disks with Sqrxz and Sqrxz 2 at RetroMadrid (limited supply, so be fast!). RetroMadrid is hold this weekend and will be the first chance for Spanish Amiga-Fans to get a physical version – the game is free, certainly we will not mind if you donate a bit so we can cover our production costs. The game is available at the Dreamcast.es-Booth.
This might sound odd, but Indiket, who is part of Dreamcast.es as well, ported all Sqrxz parts to Dreamcast, so this seemed the best solution having a real team member giving away Sqrxz.
Sqrxz 1 Amiga OCS won the first place, and Sqrxz 2 Amiga OCS the second place in the Amiga68k category at the Amiga Games Award 2012. Thanks to everyone! We will make sure to recode Sqrxz 3 for Amiga OCS too sometime this year!
Please kindly note that Sqrxz for Amiga OCS/ECS has been updated. We are now on Version 1.1 which comes with improved scrolling and improved music player. Along with this, there is a HD installable download too! A CDTV/CD32 version will follow soon as we need to update it, to be in sync with the latest release.
We’ve been at Demodays 2012 and released Sqrxz for Amiga OCS. Yes, for the good old original Amiga’s and on good old floppy disks. The game has been tested on Amiga 500 but also works without problems on AGA Amiga’s such the Amiga 1200.
Frank Wille, our Amiga OCS guy, sent out 40 floppy disks with the game. Shahzad Sahaib, our project manager, brought 31 floppy disks to the event. 11 floppy disks were sent out for marketing reasons. So as of now there are 82 floppy disks circulating. We will upload an official image within the next two weeks.
We plan to release more floppy disks, depending on the feedback we get. If everything goes smart, we will announce here and on our Facebook page, on which events (demoparty or event with retro topic) you can pick up your personal copy. Donations are welcome, but not necessary.
