I did a search of the forum for this, but found only one mention-in-passing in an otherwise unrelated post
, and I think that this deserves a thread of its own.
Basically, the Archimedes Software Preservation Project (info here
) signed a deal late last year
to make legally available a number of formerly-commercial RISC OS games, and update them to run on modern RISC OS machines - and this
reveals that the Raspberry Pi is among them.
The first games to be released - which apparently should be happening early this year
- are, according to the press release (linked above), a selection of titles that were originally released on the Archimedes by Krisalis Software, and Gremlin Graphics, and they are as follows;
Alone In the Dark
Fire & Ice
Jahangir Khan World Championship Squash
Krisalis Collection, The
Lemmings 2: The Tribes
Lotus Turbo Challenge 2
Mad Professor Mariarti
Manchester United Europe
Oh, No! More Lemmings
Omar Sharif's Bridge
Quest For Gold
World Championship Boxing Manager
World Class Leaderboard
Zool - Ninja of the 'Nth' Dimension
It's a really nice selection, and it'll be a great addition to gaming on the Raspberry Pi, I think.
Has anyone else been following this? What games are you looking forward to the most? (For my part, it has to be the three Lemmings titles that are covered here, along with James Pond, and Mad Professor Mariarti, both of which I've, for some reason, never played before.)
