Traps'n'Treasures @ the gameZfestival in Zurich

Yay! Traps'n'Treasures was presented (among other Swiss Amiga and Atari ST games created in the 80's/90's) at this weekend's games festival happening in Zurich, Switzerland.

Being part of a retrospective about the young days of game development in Switzerland was a great honour for me and it was nice to see again many familiar faces from the past days of the Swiss C64/Amiga/Atari ST scene.

The festival was organized really well with a lot of passion and care for detail and I would like to thank the committee for their great effort.

One cool feature was for example, that you needed to throw a dice to figure out the price for your entry fee. Or the squeaky chicken to draw people's attention was very funny. Great ideas and good atmosphere.

I really hope there will be another festival like this next year. Would even throw 2 dice next time.

Traps'n'Treasures among the top rarest AMIGA 500 game titles!

The issue #113 of the english magazin "Retro Gamer" featured an AMIGA 500 Collector's Guide.

And guess what: Traps'n'Treasures is listed there among the 6 top rarest PAL game titles! Wow!

I was told that especially the Krisalis (english) version of the game pays high figures at auctions (CHF 200 and more). Well, I'm happy for all the folks out there, who still have the original box.

If you are a collector, this is how the original box has looked like;
