OMG it's insane that someone actually did this...an Apple II game in 2020???

You can't get more hardcore oldschool than that.

Going to pick it up ASAP

I've been told the software market for these old computers is still alive. All sorts of people who still use them, and now they have money to spend.

$25? It's going to need a demo for me to even consider it.

Edit: No demo on Steam.

Told you nobody gives a shit here. Thread got buried in no time and if I didn't bump it now you would have never seen it again.

Just because no one talked doesn't mean it wasn't viewed and interested folks. There isn't much to say other than "Cool, excited to try it out". Until the game actually releases and folks play it, there isn't much to really discuss.

Thought it was already out.
