Is it possible to order from Retrosoftware?

Post by Beebson »

Does Retrosoftware email address still work :?: I sent an email around 1,5 weeks ago, there´s no reply. Retrosoftware site seems not to work anymore, so I went there with waybackmachine to obtain their email address.

I haven't heard from Arcadian in a while.

Was he at, the recent Cambridge event?

Dave has been busy with a big-do in Manchester . . . he maybe free now, if you want to try again?

I was there all day Saturday, so know he wasn't there. I was going to talk about the Retro Festival in this weeks ABUG General session, but it seemed to be more of a Dev session and never got the chance to jump in.

Hi, somebody else has kindly offered to take over the duplication and distribution of the Retro Software titles, as I'm regularly working away at events - often for weeks at a time - and have really struggled to find the time.

All the materials and existing stock were dropped off this week, but it may take a few weeks at least to get everything inventoried / more disc packages made up.

There is a backlog of about five orders to catch up on, so they'll be the first priority. Then once they're done we'll announce what titles are available to order. Hoping to have a lot of new releases out that haven't yet been packaged on physical media too.

Thanks for your patience!

Hello Arcadian! :) Thank you for answering even you are busy.

How can I contact that somebody else? By using that same email address found from the now disappeared Retro Software site or sending a PM to somebody else? If it´s a different email address, please PM it for me. :)

Waiting for a few weeks is not a problem, as now I know there is somebody out there, hearing my order. :)

Hi, not sure yet whether contact will be through his main stardot account, or the retrosoftware account which I set up several years back ... we'll be sure to post an update to this thread once we've got everything worked out.

Very interested in this too as I'd like some of the packaged versions. Not only do they look nice, it's a nice way to support all those who make them available.

Or even just the box!
