Last night I had something of an epiphany, and scrapped the previous beta in favour of a whole new version in Commodore64 machine code that will fit onto a data cassette tape, so you don't even need a costly 1541 drive.
Lay these three facts down:
- The Commodore 64 holds the distinction of being the most widely produced single model computer in history, with upwards of 30,000,000 units sold.
- Every home has one in the garage somewhere.
- There's a wide range of software already available for these little beauts, and the kids just love 'em.

I know what you're thinking. "Mex that looks neato, but what if I already sold off my Commodore 64 at a flea market back in the 90's and I can't get hold of one now - can I still power my subterranean lair with this programmatically impeccable piece of magic?"
Our minds are on the same page. Fortunately, the answer is "Yes". Beta testing has confirmed that the software is fully operational on a Commodore 128 under the C64 emulation mode.
If my Kickstarter campaign really takes off, I may even port an Amiga version.
You know, actually...
