Smarty And The Nasty Gluttons
« on: August 15, 2020, 07:55:16 PM »
We are most delighted to release the full version of Smarty And The Nasty Gluttons (c) 2020 Eero Tunkelo. The development of the game started back in 1992 but was halted after a few years due to difficulties in finding a publisher for the game – partly related to Commodore losing it’s share of the home computing market.

Approximately 25 years passed and a long hidden preview was cracked and released by Jouni ‘Mr. Spiv’ Korhonen and Eero Tunkelo, the copyright owner. This inspired a gathering and the idea of completely wrapping up the project and releasing a full version in ADF format.

The journey since then has been most incredible and fun. All the source code has been reviewed line by line. Many bugs have been fixed (while some new most likely created) and many features have been either finished or even enhanced. Parts of the code had to be completely re-written.

All the graphics and music were finished already in the nineties. This release also serves as our tribute to the highly talented artists we had the pleasure to work with and their wonderful contribution that we still admire so much.

We are planning to release the source code and related binaries as an open-source project – probably in the autumn of this year. There are also plans to create a purchasable product box including a floppy disk version of the game.
