Episode 57 – Commodore 64 in the 21st Century

If you’ve been listening to Forever Sound Version for a while, you’ll probably be aware of my love for the Commodore 64. This home computer was one of the most important platforms of the 8-bit era, but its games library isn’t limited to titles released in the 1980s! I’m joined by super special guest Ed Wilson – host of the excellent VGMbassy podcast – to discover some fantastic SID tunes from modern Commodore 64 games such as Planet Golf, Sam’s Journey, and Steel Ranger!
