Our team member SSB released a new game for the ATARI ST called Attackwave .
There was also already a STOT round  where we played Attackwave. SSB sponsored 3 handmade 3.5″ disks with Attackwave a as kind of limited edition of the game for the winners.
Some greek based people do a nice Retro Game Shirt Shop at ebay  . If your personal favorite game is not covered by the shirt collection, don’t hesitate to request a motive. I for example miss Speedball and Xenon II.
