THE 64 - Computer and Handheld Console
« on: April 14, 2016, 17:32:30 PM »
There's an IndieGoGo campaign that's just been launched for a new Commodore 64 computer and handheld!

THE64



There's lots of info and more pictures on the site and it says they are still working on which games will come included. Any C64 fans around here?

Looks interesting. I never had the C64 back in the day and put off getting emulation up and running as it was too unfamiliar. This may be just the ticket to get into it.
I see it's only reached 1% at this time with a month to go. Hoping it makes the goal! Thanks for putting this info out there. 8)

I've never had a C64 either. I do have a disc for the Dreamcast though that has the emulator and a ton of games on it but even that I've only played around with a couple times.

If I had experience with the computer back in the day I'd be all over this but without the nostalgia factor I'm just not sure how much I would enjoy it. The goal is $150,000 but it's flexible funding so they don't have to hit it to be successful. Hopefully it does well for the C64 fans out there.

Interesting!
I hope that it has a decent keyboard and HW is more than cheap emulator.

Thanks for sharing Shadow. I have a C64 but never really use it these days. May start looking at it again.

Cracking idea and I wish them luck but I am all out on these campaigns now, will only really pledge against books now, spending way to much on retro as it is lol.
