At Flickering Myth we’ve been keeping you updatedon The 64 from Retro Games Ltd [see more news here]. The latest line in machines to bring the “Retro” days into the 21st Century, The 64 in particular focusing on the mighty Commodore 64. Being delivered will be a full-sized keyboard based device and a much smaller handheld, pocket friendly model.
Today on the Indiegogo page an update was released informing backers of the crowdwfunding campaign – in which over £100,000 (GBP) was raised – of the recent movements within The 64 world. These include:
– Ongoing talks with several manufacturers, and distribution companies to get the most appropriate deals for both manufacture and buyers.
– Refining things like the keyboard design.
– High profile gaming licences to bundle with The 64.
