One really has to give it to RGCD and company for making sure the Commodore 64 remains the indie-friendliest retro machine around and the only 8-bit micro that keeps regularly getting properly boxed cartridges filled with indie gaming bliss. Take Get 'Em DX for example: RGCD's and Psytronik's latest release and an amazing take on the Forget Me Not formula that comes complete with lovely visuals and music, co-op multiplayer, three difficulty levels, a wild assortment of enemies and -of course yet still somehow unexpectedly- some excellent procedurally generated levels.
The game will run on any Commodore 64 or 128 you might have (even the obscure C64GS console) and, should you wisely choose to buy its boxed version, the same that I've been enjoying for the past few days, it will also come on a proper cartridge in a box and be accompanied by a manual and some stickers. The rest of you should download the freeware version of the game that will happily run via emulation or, handily, straight on your PC.
