Impossible Mission 3 - work in progress

Hello everyone,
maybe here I'm off topic but I wanted to share what we're doing with the right audience. Given the popularity of Impossible Mission I e II, which are among the most loved C64 classics, I hope our project may be of some interest for you.

Impossible Mission III (freeware indie third installment of the series) is a work in progress game for PC (not for the C64, sorry). It's the long work of years of passion for the two classic games (personally I don't count IM2025 as canonical, mainly because it wasn't good nor consistent with the first two). This third chapter was designed to be faithful to the style, graphics and sound of the originals though introducing new features.

The announcement of IM3 comes when the game, albeit not completed, isn't so far from a beta release for testing, open to everyone who wants to contribute.

Information about the game can be found in the development blog here:

Thank you for your time, fellow C64ers!
Davide

The graphics look amazing!
I wonder what the speech samples are going to sound like...

I can't wait to test it. 8)

Thank you for your interest.
Since the goal of the project is to remain faithful to the previous games, so far the speech samples include the originals from the IM1 and IM2 sids, reworked versions, combinations and a lot of tweaked material from other C64 programs of the early Eighties that featured Electronic Speech Systems' samples.
You'll hear more of it soon both on our blog and here.

looks beautiful!

I am very impressed by the idea of diagonal elevators.
Although a really simple idea, I wonder if anyone else had it! It´s the small things that really make a difference...
