Hired Sword 2 coming soon to the Atari ST

We’re very happy to announce that we’re working on our first game for the Atari ST!

We have decided to port the great Hired Sword 2, a fun RPG made by Roy Riggs released originally for the Commodore 64, to a 16bit micro computer!

The game will be essentially the same with enhanced graphics by Simone Bernacchia from Raster Wizards, as well as an adapted music score composed by Mike Richmond (who also made the music for the C64 version). Coding is done in GFA Basic 3 by Nicolas Caron (Association GameBox).

It will be playable on a stock 520STf and will features 3 languages to choose from: English, French and German.

The game will be released towards the end of the year/beginning of next in boxed and digital editions as usual. The boxed edition will include a manual and cloth map.

Here’s a sneak peek of the game still in developement! We’ll release a gameplay video within the next few weeks.
