H.P. Lovecraft in Text mode

“Dagon” and “Nyarlathotep” with PETSCII

This project of a graphic novel in “text-mode” made with PETSCII on a Commodore 64 is making me loose the few mind sanity I had left !

Thanks to Raquel Meyers and Dany Quest, this amazing book is now running its KickStarter campaign and IT HAS TO HAPPEN or the world as we know it will fall to its death into a non-euclidian nightmare !

” The writings of H.P Lovecraft and the art of Text mode (text characters rather than pixels) have an unnatural binding. How can one show the unfathomable nightmares by the writer from Providence, if not using the tool that is the Commodore 64?

Those who remember (or even still use) the Commodore machine can certainly perceive what I saw the first time I encountered the art of Raquel Meyers. It seems that the insane descriptions from the Lovecraft’s stories were born to be depicted with the character set known as PETSCII (C64 ASCII) of that computer’s keyboard. So here we are. “
