I’ll definitely try it out when it’s released. Yim says: December 13, 2008 at 8:51 pm Nice. I think it was the first commercial computer game I ever bought, for my old Atari 800. Isaac Karth says: December 13, 2008 at 9:07 pm You know, Paul Reiche III is still making games. It’s probably wishful thinking, but I’d like to see what Toys for Bob would do for a remake. (After they make Star Control III, of course) Max Battcher says: December 13, 2008 at 10:21 pm EA’s had Archon shirts at the last few PAXes. I’m pretty sure its because the announced the game in development a while ago (part of their “whole new EA” thing that seems to have lead to Dead Space and Mirror’s Edge), but it could have been just “hint, hint, wink”… Let me google: Found this press release from 07: http://kotaku.com/gaming/archon/archon-returns-235339.php I guess the new news is that it is much closer to release? Sente says: December 13, 2008 at 11:57 pm That is nice; Archon was together with M.U.L.E. some of the first games I got for my Commodore 64 that I played a lot. Takuan Daikon says: December 14, 2008 at 4:27 am Woo! I had totally forgotten about this game, and now that I see it’s being resurrected I’m totally stoked, haha. twex says: December 14, 2008 at 7:35 am You know, Paul Reiche III is still making games. It’s probably wishful thinking, but I’d like to see what Toys for Bob would do for a remake. Wasn’t Paul Reiche already involved in Archon Ultra? Reppy says: December 14, 2008 at 6:16 pm I’ve temporarily uploaded Archon Evolution for those of you that missed the download on the official site http://rapidshare.com/files/153410191/Archon.Evolution.v0.7.050.zip Isaac Karth says: December 14, 2008 at 7:22 pm Star Control can be viewed as Archon with spaceships. I’d consider Archon to be minor archetype in its own right, on the order of Tempest or Centepede. Moorgard says: December 16, 2008 at 9:41 pm I want to believe, but somehow I doubt any good can come of this. Unless I can plug an Atari joystick into my laptop, anyway. React bringing EA classic Archon to iPhone, make M.U.L.E. next? | VENUS PATROL says: November 2, 2012 at 4:31 pm [...] Raph Koster noted in December, there are good things afoot for fans of Electronic Arts’ classic C64/8-bit computer [...] Sorry, the comment form is closed at this time.
