Introducing the RGCD Megatape
I’ve been looking at getting some RGCD branded USB sticks made up for a few years now, but could never settle on a style that I was happy with. I figured it would be a nice extra to add with our physical cartridge games so that they can be played on TheC64 Mini or Ultimate64, but the cost price was...

RTFM( ) - The Evolution of RGCD’s Instruction Booklets
Here at RGCD we’re currently knee-deep in near-completed projects, and one of the biggest milestones in getting a game published is of course the print material finally coming together.

Retaliate DX (Commodore 64)
Way back in early 2018 I came across a preview of Marcelo Cabral’s Retaliate on CSDB - a simple looking shmup that on first glance appeared to be no more than a generic Space Invaders or Galaga clone.
