Pressimage games

Postby dma » Sat Jan 12, 2019 11:39 am

I've recently been through an old catalog of Pressimage (commercial releases) / DOMPUB (public domain releases).

It seems many of these Pressimage commercial releases are not available anywhere, maybe even lost?

Some more games, are also listed at Atarimania or Atari Legend, with some also not available anywhere.

Hopefully, the best title (NSFW) of the Atari Legend list has been preserved. :mrgreen:
(actually quite a challenge to play this one - and such a reward, lowest-fi scanned picture of some mama...)
Didn't knew this one was actually sold by Pressimage.

There are sources for a MANIAC game here: https://github.com/ggnkua/Atari_ST_Sour ... oft/MANIAC , including a compiled MANIAC.PRG version. From a quick test, it looks like a Pacman clone...

That's the one, thanks man.

So it's actually not scrolling, but play fields diverge quite a lot from standard Pacman layouts.

Yo Marcer,

Well Pressimage was a PD library at first.
I guess they just asked some authors for exclusive productions, and sold those at a higher price this way. ;)

I remember going in their "physical shop" on Paris, which was a small place with shelves of grey disks.
Asking for some software (probably some tracker, or MODs files). And when i was back home, finding out the man gave me a disk of erotic pictures.
Intentional or not? Couldn't say. But i was really angry about having to get back there to get the proper disk, that i know.

[edit] Aya, the Atari Legend list seems to be "enriched" atm by some pretty wicked titles. :lol:
