"Commodore USA" Makes Proper Use of the Name with New Version Commodore 64 PC

Though I've been highly critical of Commodore USA in the past for their questionable business practices and use of the Commodore brand, it looks like their latest project is actually a noble one--recreating the Commodore 64 as a modern day PC. While it's clear those are merely high quality renders, they did also post some prototype photos from a plastic printer. While Commodore USA does not have the scalability to offer reasonable pricing, I certainly commend their efforts this time around. As just one example of the usefulness of this forthcoming product, if you're a hardcore Commodore 64 homebrew programmer, there would probably be no better way than to run an emulator on this computer and hack away with a highly usable version of the original keyboard.

Our Classic CRPG Dreams are Answered with an All New Epic Game for the Commodore 64!

Newcomer (C-64) collageNewcomer (C-64) collageThanks to our friends at GameSetWatch for the excellent blog post informing us of the pending release of a computer role playing game (CRPG) for the legendary Commodore 64 (C-64), entitled, Newcomer. Apparently 20 years in the making, this appears to be the epitome of "epic", with top notch visuals, enhanced interactions, and everything else you'd expect from a modern day C-64 game. According to GameSetWatch, "The game has elements from both classic adventure titles and tabletop roleplaying games, placing an emphasis on interacting with characters, exploring the world, developing in/game and real life skills, and solving puzzles.

It's a massive title (for the C64), as one would expect after 20 years of development. Newcomer features 180+ characters to interact with (each with their own portraits), 10+ people who can join your party of six, 50+ areas created with 30+ graphic sets, 100+ cutscenes, 180,000+ words of in-game text, thousands of puzzles, and more all packed into 2 MB."

I for one can't wait, and I know one or two our readers surely feel the same...

Full Feature Set from the Protovision Website, where they seem to indicate that this had a prior life, including as "Enhanced Newcomer", with this version being "Ultimate Newcomer" (fingers crossed this gets a fully packaged release!):
