Wizball Remake

Wizball remake

Graham Goring, renown remaker and host of The Arsecast, has finally finished possibly the last remake of his career. A remake of the C64 game Wizball!

You can expect Graham’s usual high level of polish and even higher level of hardware accelerated effects. Seriously, this man’s love of particles borders on criminal.

The release of Wizball (alledgedly) marks the end of Graham’s remaking career, but also the beginning of his rise to indie gaming superstardom. I know he’s already got some rad projects lined up… but I’m still anxious to hear what he announces. Yay Graham!

Download the remake here.

UPDATE: A new version has been uploaded that fixes some issues with the first release.

The Arsecast: Attack on the Clones

Snood Sucks

Graham Goring, aka The Arsecast Host (or “Thunderwang,” to the ladies), has updated his delightful Arsecast blog with a feature about rip-offs – something we can’t get enough of in this community. This one’s especially great because he tears into the mother of all rip-offs, Snood. Or, as I like to call it, “Pood.” Get it? Because it looks like poo, guys.

Okay, maybe it’s time for bed.

Arsecast Interview: Bob Fearon

The legend... the guy... Bob Fearon.

The Arsecast has posted an interview with Robert Fearon, a.k.a. Oddbob, a.k.a. the Mersey Remakes (and Retro Remakes) guy, a.k.a. the guy who recently released Beast Invaders 3. I’m talkin’ about the guy, here.

Graham describes the interview as “more like a informal chat which veers all over the place.” As if we were expecting anything else!

Now I don’t have to bother imagining how the latest match-three puzzlers look like.

Arsecast Episode 4 is out.

Arsecast Episode 3

By: Tim

On: October 11th, 2006

arsecastPractically the best indie game podcast right now, because the rest of the competition just closed shop and disappeared.

You’ll hate listening to the programme if you make crap games and throw a tantrum when receiving constructive feedback. Others will enjoy the honesty, something most indie game sites lack.

Episode 2 is ‘ere

arsecastA new episode of The Arsecast is out, reviewing games that I’m too lazy to write about properly. (Thanks!)

Each episode is just like The Godfather, complete with swearing, shooting and bad apples.

And yes, version A is worth fifty quid on eBay now.
