This is hands down one the most impressive games I've seen this year.Is that an original concept, because if it is they should capitalize on it.

I don't know! I don't know a damn thing about it.

Edit: Sorry, a quick search immediately pulls up lots of information, available at these sites:

My friend said they are demoscene coders, probably from Poland. In some smaller countries in Europe, I know these older machines are still prized... sorry if that's an offensive way to put it, don't mean it that way. I had an 800 myself when I was a kid.

Also here's Tempest 2000 transported to the 800:

The 800XL, that is.

Great indie game! The XL rules.

It reminds me of a mix between Trailblazer and The Duct.
