Brand New Platformer 'Sam's Journey' In Development For Commodore 64

Sams-Journey-Heading-To-Commodore-64Further proving there's still life and plenty of power in the Commodore 64 comes a brand new adventure currently in the works for the classic computer, Sam's Journey. Featuring incredibly lush visuals and super smooth scrolling, homebrew coders Knights of Bytes have recently released a small teaser of their upcoming title which looks set to put the C64 in the spotlight.

Drawing inspiration from countless console-based platformers, Sam's Journey is clearing trying to bring home the likes of Super Mario Bros, Sonic The Hedgehog, and the rest of the genre back to the Commodore 64. While there are many great titles in this genre on the Commodore 64, only a handful including the likes of Mayhem In Monsterland managed to leave you questioning what platform the game was running on.

While we have no release dates set nor any indication wether Sam's Journey will be made available on cassette tape or disk, several screenshots of the game in action have been published leaving a lot to be desired. More news as and when we have it.

What is amazing about this game is that appears to have 360 degree free scrolling. Even 8-way scrolling is difficult on the C64 without having no raster time left for the game, so the scrolling in this game is really something.
