The commodeore C64 community is the most active one in the retro computer landscape. There are daily new releases hitting the BBSes (yes, real oldschool Buletin Board Systems) and the quality of this music, graphics, demos and games is mindblowing.

Why is the community still so strong? The commodore C64 was the most sold computer ever. Everyone had one, at least in germany. And the feeling you had, when you, after all the begging, got your parents so far to buy you this bleeding edge computer ("I can use it for school") and then programmed something and it even worked, was pure happieness. So strong in fact, that you never forget about it. Trading disks on the schoolyard was the only option to get new games (beside buying, but, hey, who could have afford this). Copy protections had to be 'removed'. A subculture formed, known as 'the scene'. It was all about cracking, hacking, sharing, programming and tweaking games. A lot of people for sure moved on to other computers, with more RAM and more colors. But the unique feeling wasn't the same and after some years everyone came back to the only true thing. Nowadays the frontend of this scene is the "commodore scene database", https://csdb.dk . All releases show up here. You might want to take a look and dig through the new daily entries for our 1MHz, 64 kb Ram, 16 color calculator.

There are even a few commercial Titles released: For example the best C64 game ever produced was Sam's Journey on christmas 2017 ( https://www.protovision.games/games/sams_journey.php?language=de ). If this gem would have been presented in the 80s Sam would undoubtable be more popular than Mario or Giana.

If you do not own an original C64, what is the normal case I guess, you can use an emulator, the most advanced one is called VICE and available for all newer computer systems. http://vice-emu.sourceforge.net/ (it's actually an emulator package for all commodore computers, for the C64 open 'x64').

But back on topic: I present to you a choice of
