you've reached the last history post.
These posts present the development of games that pre-date this blog, digs of old paperwork on ancient machines. This is not only nostalgia, which would also encompass games of those times which I enjoyed and similar things. It's wider than the sole development of the story line for Bilou's Adventure and captures a lot of other "PPP Team" games & tools.
- 1989: first hand on the Great Giana Sisters and first "quarters" into a Super Mario Bros arcade machine.
- 1990 : Playing Rick Dangerous at the computer store roughly every week. Planning a cover of "le Labyrinthe d'Errare" on C64 (Role-playing Book)
- 1991: First platformer project on my 8086 computer while my brother discovers Blues Brothers (titus) and Commander Keen (ID software)
- 1992 : Super Mario World arrives in Europe.
