Software for the Commodore 64:
One of my hobbies is to program really crappy software for obsolete computer platforms like the Commodore 64:
FOREST OF LOOM 2008
A game developed in SEUCK – 1000% garantueed HOT ARCADE action as you wander through the pacific northwest forests and small villages fighting aliens, secret agents, snakes and mega robots. This was original a ‘promotional’ gimmick after the release of the Smackos – Computer Day album in 2007. You can download the .d64 file here
Here is a small ‘play through’ video with some of the Computer Day album music:
SPIRICOM 7 2012
A ‘Dimensional Occult Transiever’ or an experiment in A.I. language processing on the Commodore 64. Make contact with the unseen world -> Ghosts and spirits and evoke paranormal activity in your own home! Endless fun for the whole family!!! Open the door for demonic entities that will haunt you on every corner. Simply let the computer create a doorway for these frequencies – if contact is made you can converse with the spirit and find out more about your houses netherworld.
For some reason there is no d.64 file but I got a .prg file which will also open in a commodore 64 emulator like VICE. Just drag the file into the VICE 64 window. Download here.
And here is an MP3 of the audio cassette you need to insert in your hifi system when the program asks for it. You can just play the mp3 but if you want to be real authentic you can ofcourse record it to a cassettetape and play it for some extra scary mood.
Here is a movie of me and Willie Burns running the program:
TRIDENT CRISIS 2009
considered to be one the worst games ever on the Commodore 64 and I am proud of it! In this cold war text adventure (or ‘interactive fiction’) you take the persona of Franz Falckenhaus and try to escape to the west. It was originally programmed in one day for an intergalactic FM/CBS radio auction and was part of an extremely rare Strange Life Records release of which only one copy exists.
I am also very proud it got cracked by a demo group – you can download it here including the cracking group intro (.d64 file)
The original Franz Falckenhaus release of which only 1 copy exists came with a microcassette, the CD with music and the Commodore 64 game on cassette.
Here is a little movie of the game with some music from the release:

HOW TO USE THE VICE COMMODORE 64 EMULATOR
