Game: ASM - Das Computer-Spiel (The Director's Cut) released (German)
The game about the former computer game magazine "ASM - Aktueller Software Markt", published from 1986 to 1995, which was announced in May, is now available, but as German version only.

Originating from a programming competition in 1991, the graphic adventure was revised, extended and provided with new music by Roland 'Triace' Vo for twelve months with the help of editors of that time, so that it could now - "just 32 years later" - be completed as "Director's Cut".

As chief editor Manfred 'Manni' Kleimann, the player moves through the editorial building in point-and-click style from the first-person perspective as in "Die Kathedrale" or "Uninvited" and tries to track down the secret of his own memory loss. The game doesn't take itself seriously and wants to let friends of humor la "Spaceballs", "The Naked Gun" or Monty Python get their money's worth.

In addition to a download version, the game is also available as a physical product, which contains a CD for Amigas with an appropriate drive, including CDTV and CD, as well as a poster, three disk stickers, an ASM wooden cube and a 20-page manual (in the optical style of an ASM from 1991). Stefan Bayer has exclusively contributed a brand new "Donald Bug" comic for the manual.

"ASM - The Computer Game" runs on any Amiga from Kickstart 1.3 with at least 1 MB RAM. A hard disk installer is also included. The game is controlled by keyboard and mouse, the use of a joystick is optional. A hard disk with 3 MB free memory and 2 MB RAM are recommended. (snx)
