Oh yeah! I love micros so this is right up my alley!

 You haven't seen all of Sam yet. Stay tuned for updates! 🙂

I played this game on the C64 - it's for sure one of the best games ever on that machine!

Glad you liked it! 😃👍

Had a lot of fun with this and can't wait to try it on NES.

Due to the specific characteristics of the target systems, the C64 and the NES version will each have their own unique look and sound, which is absolutely fine. We will, however, attempt to provide the same level of playability and joy on both machines! 😃

Hi there, video gamers!

We've been asked if there will be a PAL and an NTSC version of Sam's Journey on the NES. The answer is yes, and we're even going the extra mile and will provide equalized gameplay speeds on both systems! It seems to work well so far!
 
Enjoy this little video study where we play the two versions simultaniously with one controller. Just click to play:

Stay tuned for further updates! 🙂🕹️

Knowing how much of a bother that can be to adjust, that's really impressive 🙂

Let me know when you're going on Kickstarter or whatever so I can be the first to back this!

Thanks! 🙂

To be honest, it's a whole lot of work, but as players of both regions will benefit from this, we think it's worth the effort.

Deal! 😄

We're certainly going to make a post here, when the time has come.

This looks incredibly nice!

Have you thought about adding achievements? Like 'Beaten the game with 100%', 'Beaten the game without dying', 'Beaten the game in unter xx minutes' ... Stuff like that? That's the only thing I missed in the C64 version.

Can't wait to play this on my NES :classic_cool:

Like a special Knights of Bytes certificate or a dinner with the developers? 🤣

Hi there, video gamers!

It's been some time, but now we're back with another update on Sam's Journey for the NES! 😃

Even down in an eerie cave with its dark abyss, the thrust of a jetpack may come in handy. Enjoy our fourth teaser and watch Space Sam using his new power suit to defy gravity and catapult himself to new heights! Just click to play:

Stay tuned for further updates! 🙂🕹️

This game was fantastic on the C64 and it looks even better on the NES.

I cannot imagine how incredible Super Sam's Journey or Sam's Journey 64 will be 😜

The visuals on both system are, of course, different. While the C64's colors are more flexible to use, the NES benefits from a higher resolution. The gameplay experience, however, should be the same. 🙂

We cannot either - yet! 😅
