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.
Get the game at the Commodore 4 Ever booth now!
Thanks to Jesus / Commodore4ever for the picture and the distribution @ RetroMadrid 2013
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!
Hipoonios gave Sqrxz 2 on Amiga Classic a go and here is his Longplay-Video. The game plays like butter, doesn’t it? :)
Yesterday Sqrxz 2 Amiga OCS (click for download-section) by Retroguru had it’s premiere release at the fourth Viennese Retro-Market (4. Wiener Retro-Börse).
Sqrxz 2 Amiga OCS is served in three different versions: Floppy Disk Image, HD-Install, CD Image (for CDTV and CD32)!
* Rodolphe Boixel (Main Code)
* Frank Wille (Assembler recoding)
* Simon Butler (Graphics)
* Alexander Wiklund (Music)
* Jane Mumford (Additional Graphics)
* Virgile Metier (Graphics adjustment to meet the Amiga limitations)
* Shahzad Sahaib (Project Management & Leveldesign)
We divided 50 floppy disks of Sqrxz 2 amongst the visitors and 17 floppy disks of Sqrxz 1, which makes a total of 67 floppy disks. Our Retroguru table with an Amiga 500 (provided by Mark!) allowed everyone to test the game live. Most people failed within the first three screens, but this was to be expected. Interestingly a very young girl managed to play past the half of the first level, which was hardly achieved by any other player.
Next possibility to catch a real floppy disk with the game is tUM 2012.
Feedback and donations are welcome anytime :) Please kindly understand that it’s not possible for us to send out the game on floppy disk via snail mail. It just eats too much money and time.
