This is borderline unbelievable.

Behold: Digiloi, a gorgeous C64 shooting game made entirely with PETSCII that was released today (for free).

It's one thing to see PETSCII art, it's another to witness animated PETSCII. But a complete game, with utter artistic mastery of the platform? Not to mention the low overhead for going this route. Wow!

Looks like I _really_ should get my C64 up and running.

Update: the author of the game wrote a blog post about the making of this game, which is a very interesting read.

Wow! I tried it on Vice and it is incredible. Plays faster and smoother then I would expect. This has to be a first. There is also a Plus/4 version on the disk image. Can't wait to try it out on my actual 64.

I want to try it on my Plus/4 - I don't get a lot of use out of that beautiful little machine. This game looks fantastic!

I downloaded this last night and played way more than I should have. Pretty awesome PETSCII banging!
