My name is Rafał Miazga, known as Ralf on some Spectrum forums. I'd like to submit my game to this compo. The game is ready, I worked on it in privacy without giving much info to the world
I was writing a longer post but I lost it so it will be short, I'll add details later.
The game is called Wunderwaffe which is "wonder weapon" in German. You are and Allied undercover agent, disguised as Nazi officer. Your job is to get into Nazi underground base and recover secret documents.
Disclaimer for dummies
- you are not a Nazi, you are disguised as a Nazi. Nazis are bad guys, you kill them - if your law, religion, morality or stepmother forbids you to play game with Nazi symbols just don't play it and don't moan
The game is inspired by Polish game for Atari 8-bit computer called Hans Kloss. I'll write about this inspiration more later:
It was very popular in Poland and this popularity survived into 90s when some young guys made a game about it on Atari, totally without any copyrights dealt with;) The Atari game is very loosely tied to the film, it's actually completely new story, connected just by the hero.
So my game is loosely inspired by Atari game which is loosely inspired by the film I added shooting soldiers, more detailed backgrounds and lots of other stuff but the main ideas are the same - explore Nazi base, travel by lifts, collect keys, food and documents.
I considered calling it Hans Kloss, just like the original but people are today really obsessive about copyrights and I don't want some dummy to start a shitstorm that I don't have rights to use this name. So it's officially Wunderwaffe about some anonymous guy
