Penguin Adventure Fan Remake! Also Nemesis and Castlevania!


I’ve blogged about penguin adventure before while I was hunting for games for my planned Retro Game Adventi stumbled across news that Kotai (Konami-Taito Fan) is working on a multi-player remake of Penguin Adventure to mark it’s 25th anniversary.  There is little information on their site, which lists a few of the other retro remakes they have made such as a multiplayer Castlevania remake, a multiplayer Bubble Bobble remake and a multiplayer Nemesis (Gradius in the US/UK) remake.

There are a few more videos on their/his YouTube Channel, but all the commentary is in Spanish, thanks to Google translate though:

Heading to 4 players online. The game will be available for download in a few days www.remakesonline.com

I can’t wait!

I’ll need to download the Nemesis remake I loved that game when I was a kid too and the idea of playing a multiplayer version of it is quite appealing… Here is a video of Nemesis online being played, it looks awesome!

Digital: a Love Story

Digital a Love Story is a game that borrows it’s UI from the days of the Amiga. The Games UI looks like an amiga workbench circa 1988 or so, you have just received a modem and you have to dial into BBS’s to gather information. Eventually you have to hack the phone system to get free long distance calls, all in your quest to do something… I’ve not played this game but I like the retro vibe of the concept.

From the Website:

A Computer Mystery/Romance Set 5 minutes into the Future of 1988.

I can guarantee that at least ONE of the following is a real feature:

  • Discover a vast conspiracy lurking on the internet!
  • Save the world by exploiting a buffer overflow
  • Get away with telephone fraud!
  • HACK THE GIBSON!

It’s available for Windows, Mac and Linux.
