QUOD INIT EXIT IIo preview released


This update brings QUOD INIT EXIT IIm only an improved manual. But the real news is that who purchased it can now download also a preview of its big brother QUOD INIT EXIT IIo!

Below you can find some details. For further information, please check out the notice and the manual included in the preview itself.

WHY A PREVIEW?

I never release previews, but this time several reasons added up and convinced me to go for it:

  • the development has been sluggish in the last 3 years;
  • one cause is that after many years I returned to the Amiga, for which I started developing a few new engines, I made a new game (SkillGrid), and touched up some older projects;
  • the previous point means that I won't work on any Commodore 64 project any time soon :(
  • I publicly mentioned several times that I was working on QUOD INIT EXIT IIo, so, although I never made promises, maybe I generated some expectations;
  • all the above made me feel somewhat guilty, so I thought that a preview would make for a nice surprise;
  • the Coronavirus is hitting hard these days and nobody can really predict how the situation will evolve, so I thought I'd better let you enjoy now this incomplete version rather than risk that one day I have a (more) complete version but not the possibility to release it or less people to give it to - yep, it's a gloomy point of view and I hope that it will not turn into reality, but I just have to take into account also the worst eventuality, especially considering how evilly many (most?) governments have (not) dealt with the COVID-19 menace.

Eventually, I decided to release this preview as an exclusive gift to the QUOD INIT EXIT IIm users, who, in general, have been very generous with their donations - therefore, it is not freeware, so please don't spread!
To prepare it, I spent about one week adding features, improving/fixing the code, touching up graphics, refining maps, polishing things here and there, testing the results, and... playing just for the fun of it! Consequently, the development made some nice steps forward. When I started, I didn't even remotely suspect what would happen (in fact, I thought it would take one or two days at most).

Looks cute and so tidy with all hires graphics!
Thanks for sharing the actual status, it seems there is already a lot to play in the preview.

Stay safe, stay creative

Thanks a lot :)

Yep, I'm trying to stay safe... I'm staying home! That's what I wholeheartedly suggest to everybody, even if their country is not enforcing that by law (yet). The coronavirus threat must not be underestimated.

Take care!

Is it a single file .prg?

No, it's available only as an EasyFlash cartridge image (.crt).
