Brand New Game: Cronopios y Famas

posted by TecSoft


The latest game by Alessandro Grussu, Cronopios y Famas, a dynamic adventure inspired by Cronopios and Famas, a collection of short stories by Argentine writer Julio Cortázar (1914-1984). It is meant as an "interactive homage" to this great author.

This is the first full-fledged title authored with the new version of Jonathan Cauldwell's Arcade Game Designer, namely v4.3, and is designed for the 48K Spectrum as well as its Argentine counterparts by Czerweny Electrónica that mounted common motherboards (mainly issues 4 and 6a) manufactured by Timex Portugal.

The game is based upon several short stories from the fourth section of the book, the one dealing with two peculiar kinds of beings, Cronopios and Famas. They symbolize two opposite and complementary qualities of human existence and are both pervaded by a vein of humor and folly.
