    Default RPG Quest, Minimae or PETIMA as seen on 8 bit guy

    So now that my Commodore PET is working, I would love to play some games on it. What comes to mind is on the 8bit guys PET history video, he mentions an ultima style clone ported to the PET: https://youtu.be/eP9y_7it3ZM?t=949

    Their website is http://p1xl.com/ but the link takes you to an apache amazon linux ami test page?! Id be more than happy to pay for a copy but I cant find these guys and very little info on the game.

    Anyone know anything about this company?

    Have you tried the Wayback machine? e.g. Here's the page for Super Splatform

    I did Chuck, makes no mention to that port of thier game. I guess its something they did for fun and didnt intend to sell or distribute.. Shame. The PET could use some new software.

    Oh, there are links to the Google play store:

    https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...p1xl.minimarpg

    or the Amazon Digital version:

    https://www.amazon.com/P1XL-Games-LL.../dp/B00PI87LQU

    or the iTunes store:

    https://itunes.apple.com/app/id336817715

    But neither of these are PET original code, if that's what you were looking for.

    I saw those, looks like they are ported to mobile devices. I cant find any reference to the PET game other than a twitter/facebook post showing a screen shot. Wonder if its really a game at all. Im still holding out some hope, new VIC 20 games and C64 games are being made. Maybe someone will make a pet game (release it on audio cassette maybe?)

    Problem is I really don't think there are that many PET owners; someone should make a website registry just to keep track.

    I dunno--have you tried contacting any of the people on their twitter page?

    You might also contact eBay seller "Dorktronic", who, at one time, dealt their stuff.
