Thanks for your nice comments guys. They are really appreciated.

If there were enough players it would be nice to have some kind of contest. And maybe not only for your score, but for instance to see the first one being able to identify all the songs, and maybe spot all the references to the 80s.. And some which are not to the 80s...

I particularly like the introduction :) and the fact that they think the puzzle-thing works!

I've received my issue of retrogamer yesterday.
A good discover in retro section. Thanks chema for the recognition of the oric in this mag. Usually, they speak about zx or c64

A nice video review of Oricium.

Just a shame he got the name confused with Oricutron :-)

My only concern is the URL they give to download Oricium, it's not the official one :( (so they may earn $$$ from everyone that use this URL instead of the normal one, even if it's just a redirection)

hehe... nice video, though.

He misses also a bit of the gameplay (and does not calibrate the vertical retrace too well, I think, but that is indeed a bit hard).

I wonder why he does not select the Beginners Game first ;)
