While preparing the Special Edition of Brunilda for RetroMadrid, we thought it would be cool to improve that version over the already published one.

Metalbrain got to work and, as only he knows, optimized the screen drawing routines to the limit, making the scroll way smoother everywhere in the game.

On the other hand, Wyz took the game music and moved, touched, remixed and modified everything necessary to extract the best possible sound from his own player.

Two tiny bugs were also fixed: a colour changing mushroom and an out of place apparition by Brunilda.

And finally, a pair of english mistakes were fixed, and then AugustoRuiz reviewed the whole translation to make it sound more natural.

Today, a week after the party, we put this "remastered" version at everyone's disposition. You may download it from the game's card. Do it, it's really worth it.

We would like to present a new and old game... well, we are not crazy, it is really just like that!

Around 1991, our friends Acme and Mikomedes wrote a game for the Spectrum which got lost in the sands of time, until, just a year ago, they recovered it and made it work.

As time passes by for everyone and everything, they also decided to create a new version, updating most of the aspects of the game by using the new tools for programming Spectrum games, and taking advantage of the 128K models. So that is how 2 new games in 1 were born here at Retroworks:

  • The Chard (MIA 1991)
  • The Charm (2014)

«Long time ago, where the sun softly raised above the leafy forests and the day just counted a few hours. In misty, shadowy lands. Our hero, who can now be mentioned as such, whose name was then strange, Sir Oup, hanged on a gate that gave entrace to King Chardy's castle. The king had requested his presence...»

If you want to know more about the story, go to the game card... Oh! And it will be available to buy in cassette format, with a really nice cardboard box, at Retromadrid 2014!

New update for Brunilda that fixes two bugs that had been reported:

The not correspondent messages when examining map objects, and a new one in version 1.2 with arrows position at fights.

All bugs reported are now fixed, so we hope this one will be the final version.

Thanks for your patience and your bugs reporting.

We're still impressed by the reception given to our "Brunilda" (thank you very much, guys!), and have been working to solve a couple of bugs found after game release.

The bugs fixed from the version originally published, are the following:

  • Tile corruption in caves (only present in TZX files, not the TAP ones).
  • A place at the village that allowed our companion to block our way.
  • Memory corruption when songs were unpacked.

And we also added a package with complete source code.

Grab it from game card!!!

As an early gift from Santa Claus, we want release our new game today: Brunilda.

A game for 128k Spectrum, which was conceived as interactive fiction for PC but was never ended, and in the end has become an adventure game for Spectrum with a huge map to explore, and a very different development from the original planning.

We hope you like it and enjoy playing as much as we have enjoyed programming it.

You can download it from its entry.
