Personal TOP 20 of Commodore 64 games that got released after C64 ceased production by YouTuber Old Style Gaming.
Being among this exquisite choice of digital greatness is a true honor. It features awesome titles like Sam’s Journey, Sonic the Hedgedog, Super Mario Bros C64 and many others. Note that OUTRAGE is the only production that started BEFORE the decline of the C64 and was released almost 3 decades after it. Thanks Paul!

Honestly that was exactly the review I was hoping for. A comparison between my great inspiration – the classic C64 Thalamus game Hawkeye – and OUTRAGE. Fantasticly edited and commented by BastichB 64K.
Thanks mate, that really meant a big honor to me!
Best comment by Jeroen Tel (famous Hawkeye sound composer) telling that he was in the age of 15 (!) when doing it – WTF, this C64 legend is MY AGE!
OUTRAGE hammer review by OldMetalheadGaming
I literally shed tears of joy – that vid was hilarious!
He obviously shed sweat and blood to fight his way through.
The full background story got shaped out like a precision-driller. At the end he rated with his personal beer scale and OUTRAGE got full-metal 10 out of 10 beers – cheers, mate!
Gamejam / Klujam 2022 Interview
I had the chance to give an interview and talk about OUTRAGE at the Spring Gamejam / Klujam 2022 in Klagenfurt. I used this opportunity tell about our Guinness Book of Records experience and ask for help as I am still searching for the right supporting institution. The Klujam is organized by the game studies institute at the University of Klagenfurt – so hopefully they can become a promoter of our journey.

I got invited to the LEVEL UP 2022 Gaming Festival in Salzburg to talk about OUTRAGE.

The UNSUNG HEROES of OUTRAGE
This excellent researched video has been put together by Wouter Bovelander aka theHighlander71. Wouter focused his report on those members of the OUTRAGE taskforce that might not have gotten the attention they deserved – one of them is Sidney Arbouw. Sidney fixed numerous bugs and spent over 12 months into investigating the undocumented assembler code to put the puzzle pieces together. Wouter pays high tribute to the whole team effort that made OUTRAGE possible. Thanks Wouter – I totally agree – and big shoutout to all these amazing OUTRAGERS that made the happy end possible!
Full Walkthrough until final boss
Christian aka VIPER trained for a full week in order to get himself prepared for his video captured with MiSTer (FPGA) Commodore 64 HDMI at 1080p/50Hz. He mastered all five levels but did he prevail the final endboss? Well find it out!
“For me, Outrage is just a great game that I had a lot of fun with. Of course it’s nothing for players with not so good skills.”
OUTRAGE Gameplay Video from Paddy Retro Kanal that starts with the live presentation from Malte Mundt given at the LuheCon in Winsen 2023. Malte (aka ThunderBlade) is the brother of Milo Mundt (aka MacGyver) who tragically died 2022. Malte tells the OUTRAGE story from Protovision’s perspective with some new background facts. The presentation is in german so make sure to activate subtitles.
Highfive to Malte and Paddy – mates, you brought back many wonderful memories in the year 2023!
