EVIL DUNGEON II (C64) release date and pre-order option!

Hey supporters, adventurers, retro heroes and all that I missed. I’ve been working hard on the sequel for the past few months and I’m proud to announce that “EVIL DUNGEON II” is about to be released.

Release is on Friday, October 20th, 2023 (digital/physical)

The digital download will be available on itch.io

This time there is again an exciting story, which seamlessly connects to the events of the first part and continues them.

The game concept remains the same, but is also expanded by a few innovations.

What awaits you in EVIL DUNGEON II?

  • A brand new fantasy story
  • A new maze, enemies, objects and puzzles
  • Exclusive theme and background music by Nordischsound (Benjamin Dibbert)
  • Two alternate endings!
  • Quick save function
  • English and German version on one disk/image
  • Physical Collector’s Edition

Pre-Order for the Collector’s Edition is open now!

Why a pre-order?

As I’m sure you know, I’m a “one-man army” and I’m managing the project almost single-handedly, alongside family and work. A pre-order enables me to order and produce the necessary materials such as sleeves, disks, cover prints, etc. in sufficient and realistic numbers and to better coordinate the later shipping/logistics. You support me and the project in this way too, without any additional costs for you! And don’t worry, everyone gets a game! It’s not about creating a limitation.

Thank you in advance for your trust and support!

EVIL DUNGEON II (C64) is coming!

EVIL DUNGEON (WiC64-Version) released!

As of today you can also find my adventure game “Evil Dungeon” (English version) free to play in the WiC64 portal!

You find it in the “Online Games\Highscore Games II” section.

What’s different in the WiC64 version?

  • The game loads very fast!
    Game data will partially loaded from my webserver and benefits from the technology of the WiC64 device. It’s a great experience!
  • Online Highscore!
    If you master the dungeon, your experience points will be stored 1:1 as score in the online highscore list. There is a own highscore list for Evil Dungeon and it also counts against the “All games” highscore.
  • The gameplay and main content remains the same as in the offline version 1.1 – no changes here!

What is a WiC64?

The Wireless interface for
C64 – SX64 – C128 – VIC20

The device offers a variety of features: Online portal, chat, demos, games, apps, online multiplayer games, SID-Radio and much more…

EVIL DUNGEON (C64) Version 1.1 released!

What? A new version of EVIL DUNGEON?

Let me explain. I really like my game and there are no plans to release further versions in the future!

But there were some little things I like to see fixed/changed, for a better overall experience. Some of that is direct feedback from you! Thanks!

What about the physical copies on floppy?

There is no absolute need to use version 1.1!
If you like the game as it is, stay with it.
If you want to upgrade your version to 1.1 just download it, delete the MAIN.PRG file from the original floppy and replace it with the MAIN.PRG file from new .D64 image. If you have Ultimate or similar devices you can also mount the new image and copy the image as a whole to the floppy. You are done!

Update: All new physical shippings will include the V1.1 already!

Changelog (Version 1.1 EN/DE):

  • Changed menu: Added toggle button <F1> (YES/NO) to switch introduction on/off
  • Changed menu: Added toggle button <F2> (YES/NO) to enable/disable door sounds (for faster experience)
  • You have to hit <RETURN> in menu to start the game now!
  • Clock improvement: less and more effective code, more precise time calculation for playtime. Please don’t care about highscore times, they are not evaluated for ranking, it’s just an info.
  • Little adjustment in balancing regarding fire vials and healing potions. Prevents the game to become too easy in some cases.
  • Typo: “wodden” -> “wooden” in english version
  • Fixed translation error: ‘C’ for (c)heck in intro reacted only to ‘N’ like in german version.

Downloads have been replaced with V1.1 now!

And yes, you can still get one of the physical copies if you like. Just ping me: kontakt at retroarts.de
