Tim mentioned this in his last news update, but I thought it was cool enough to warrant a highlight. Monty's Christmas Special is a new game by Trevor “Smila” Story and Scottige created in collaboration with UK magazine Retro Gamer. Basically it's Monty on the Run, only twice as fast and set in the Retro Gamer offices.

Since I'm on a bit of a game video bender at the moment, I recorded a bit of a demonstration of the game to show off what it's like (above). Unfortunately that caused it to run a wee bit slower than it should have. Still, hopefully it'll give you some idea of what you're in for - a nifty retro game that's extremely well put together and lots of fun! Heartily recommended!

This is REALLY cool. The controls take a bit to get used to. I haven't played a commodore game in forever. But the game is really fun and it automatically gets +10 orgasm points for being Christmas themed.

Tim: Ah, that wasn't necessary, no problem :)

Other Tim: Isn't it? :)

One of you two need to start calling yourself something different, heh.

Great job Terry... BTW, how many issues have you managed... My best try has been somewhere in the low thirties... Too rusty me thinks...

Cheers :) I've managed 50 issues and gotten to the third save point, but I haven't played it for a few days. There's an area to the west of the room below the well that held me up for a while, heh.

Er, sorry, second save point. Just going to give it another shot now actually.

Finished! It gets a lot easier after the halfway point.
