I have the pleasure of announcing the release of my latest game, Cronopios y Famas, a dynamic adventure inspired to Cronopios and Famas, a collection of short stories by Argentine writer Julio Cortázar (1914-1984). It is meant as an "interactive homage" to this great author.
This is the first full-fledged title authored with the new version of Jonathan Cauldwell's Arcade Game Designer, namely v4.3, and is designed for the 48K Spectrum as well as its Argentine counterparts by Czerweny Electrónica that mounted common motherboards (mainly issues 4 and 6a) manufactured by Timex Portugal.
The game is based upon several short stories of the third section of the book, the one dealing with two peculiar kinds of beings, Cronopios and Famas. They symbolize two opposite and complementary qualities of human existence and are both pervaded by a vein of humor and folly.
Cronopios y Famas is available in both TZX format, for general purpose emulation and loading on real hardware, and TAP for use with the DivIDE.
As usual, please read the enclosed documentation before playing. User manual and game are in six languages: Italian, English, French, German, Spanish and Portuguese.
Should you get stuck, I already sent Gerard at the Tipshop ( www.the-tipshop.co.uk ) a walkthrough, complete with references to Cortázar's book, and a spoiler-free map. Both will be added to the website archive at the next update, which should take place around the end of September and the start of October.
