|Overview:||With the advent of mobile and indie gaming several years ago, less technically advanced games can now have a significant impact on the gaming community. In this talk, Paul will show that with enough knowledge of the system, such contemporary games can successfully be ported to a thirty-year-old platform. He will present case studies on the Commodore64 ports of both Canabalt and SuperCrateBox. Working together with the original authors, only a few changes were necessary to make these games playable on this vintage platform.|
