The Govodore G64 is one of the two platforms available at the start of the game, along with the PC. The G64 is much more popular than the PC at the beginning of the game, however it loses marketshare fairly quickly, and is the first platform to be taken off the market. This is the only release by Govodore, due to them filing for bankruptcy, as they couldn't introduce higher-end computers to the market.


  • The Govodore G64 is the game version of the Commodore 64.
  • The G64 is shown with a Commodore 1541 floppy drive, a Commodore 1351 mouse, and a slightly fictionalized 1702 monitor. The mouse shown would not be used up until 1986, one year after the release of the Commodore Amiga. The mouse could be used in various games, but mainly used with GEOS, a graphical interface for the Commodore 64.

Industry NewsEdit

  • "Recent market studies suggest that the Govodore G64 is steadily outselling competitors in the PC sector. Consumers prefer the lower price, greater availability and the flexible hardware configuration over other home computers. Experts say that this might spell the end of competing hardware manufacturers"
  • "Recent market data shows that the Govodore G64 seems to be slowly losing market share against other PC manufacturers. In an unofficial statement a G64 employee said that the company has been unsuccessful in introducing higher priced computers to compete against newer and more advanced PCs."
  • "Hardware manufacturers around the world were surprised today as Govodore, the creator of the popular G64, has filed for bankruptcy. Govodore failed to introduce a higher priced alternative and was forced to shut down production of the G64. The platform will retire from the market later this month."
