Release day interview: Rosslyn – The Templar Mystery

June 9, 2011

Here at J-OMG, we often feature remakes by Ovine by Design. Why? Because they happen to remake games we like, they answer our questions, and they haven’t told us to go jump – yet.

But today we’ve got something different; an original game by Ovine. Rosslyn – The Templar Mystery.

Now the game’s been released in the last few hours (free download – link below), it’s time for another J-OMG ‘release day interview’.

Wow.

Indie-hit VVVVVV (err, that’s 6 x ‘V’, not 3 x ‘W’, if you were wondering) is now being demade from it’s original PC platform, to the Commodore 64.

Matching the sound/graphics of the original won’t be too hard; but getting the item placement and controls right… will be crucial.

There’s already a demo available, so fire up your favourite C64 emulator, and get playing!

By the way the original game is STILL available for just US$5, from the author’s site. I’m about 40% through it, and it’s great fun.

You gotta swing your hips now…
(Sorry. Right year – wrong smash hit)

1987.

Around the world, gamers are battling the Bydo empire in Irem’s R-Type. And in a little Spanish arcade… a young boy has made it all the way to the last level! (Respect! I never made it further than level 4. -Ed) He’s excited. He’s hitting the buttons. He’s screaming at the enemies. And all the while, some bemused teenagers are laughing at him. “What a loco-malito!” they said. (If your Spanish is a little rusty, it means “little sick mad kid”.)
