News: CoCo Nutz E-Zine Published

The new issue of the recently renamed CoCo Nutz! E-zine, Volume 2, Issue 2, has been released by CoCoist/Editor Mary Kramer. This issue features an interview with CoCo game programing wizard Nicholas Marentes. The online 'zine recently underwent a name change from "newsletter" to "E-zine" to reflect the growing size of the publication.

The issue also includes articles by Jim Cox, Bob Devries, Brian Palmer, one liners from Richard Kelley, a fix for LPOKE by Rodney, the first part of a series on getting your CoCo 3 to do colors like a CoCo 1/2 by Jason Law, and a new Mine Sweeper game, The Mission, by Diego Barizo. Throw in the usual interesting bits and a review, and this is one of the best issues yet! Kudos to Mary and all the contributors for another fine issue!

Hi Captcpu,

Yeap, The last issue of Coconut's newsletter was Execellent, Mary deserves all the kudo's , For the Hard work she puts in that newsletter.
Would be great to see a game done, Based on Mary's Mayhem, Be a very funny game to play for sure.
How about you sending 1 of your little mini-games into the next issue.

Mary's Mayhem would be a fun a game. :) I'll see if I have anything finished in time for the next one. Maybe... The mini-games I've got so far are really just me relearning to program, but I'll polish a few off and see if I can get 'em posted over the next few weeks. Just don't want to disappoint anyone... seriously, they're meager at best. ;)

Angel's Luck,
