Pleins gaz by Froggy Software

Brutal Deluxe Software, in partnership with Jean-Louis Le Breton (CEO of Froggy Software) and Richard Soberka (programmer, author of Zephyr), is happy to announce the release of the arcade game Pleins gaz for the Apple II.

This color HGR arcade game was released by Froggy Software in late 1986. As the company shut its doors shortly after, the game was barely distributed.

Version 1.2 presented here runs under ProDOS and is hard disk drive installable. The game runs on all Apple II with 128KB of RAM.

Together, in 2016, we have decided to release the game as software were distributed during the golden years of the Apple II: zip lock bag, manual, and floppy disk with label.

We auction the first three issues, one after the other. Those are signed by Jean-Louis Le Breton and Richard Soberka.

WOzFest $04 Announcement

Europlus writes:


To celebrate KansasFest 2016 (and commiserate with other non-attendees) I’m proud to announce WOzFest $04 will be held on Saturday 23 July, kicking off at around midday.

At 1400 AEST we’ll try and get a video hookup with any KansasFest insomniacs (it’ll be 2300 CDT 22 July there) and share the KFest vibe.

Potential projects include ESR testing of PSU capacitors (feel free to bring some along), software preservation, assessment of some complete Apple //e education systems Jeremy from Canberra has recently secured from his high school Maths teacher, disk drive maintenance/recovery, and anything else people bring with them or decide on the day!

The usual munchies and cider will be present, with an expected dinner of pizza.

I expect it will be more low-key than WOzFest /// – but as I discovered last time around, anything can happen in 3 short weeks!

Hope to see you there!
