The Wild Wood was an idea I had a while ago, loosely inspired by the Wild Wood from the book “The Wind in the Willows” by Kenneth Grahame. My singular aim is to produce the best looking and most graphically dense game to grace the humble C64 as well as one of the most fun gaming experiences.”
John is a professional artist and teacher as well as a C64 enthusiast.
“I have been involved in producing the artwork and graphics for many retro projects and I thought it was about time I put 100% into one of my own!
and Game Design
Achim is a prolific C64 coding veteran and has been responsible for some of the finest recent games to grace the Commodore 64 system. Recent games include Age of Heroes and Isle of the Cursed Prophet.

Music, SFX and Project Manager
“You might remember me from titles such as Ted Bear’s rainy day games, International Karate Ultimate Competition, Summer Ape goes to Winter Camp, Frantic Freddie II, Endless Forms Most Beautiful and Pterodactyl Terry in the Kitchen of Doom. Wild Wood's soundtrack will be very varied, including but not limited to rock, metal, medieval, ambient, synth, classical and neoclassical, as well as some tunes from the sadly unfinished and unreleased C64 games Robo Rocket and Ted Bear vs Sticky Bear.”
Artur is an experienced coder, active across a range of home computers.
“I've been involved with programming since 1989. My first computer was a C64. It didn't take too long to pick up assembly and coding intros and demos. I've been (and still am) in various demo groups.”
“Games weren't my primary goal but I released two C64 games: Log-X and Marbloid. I later did get into the game industry and participated in a GBA game, two NES and a SNES game.”
Kodiak is a prolific coder. He is well known for his mission to push the boundaries of what is possible on the humble C64.
Kodiak's determination has led him to take the use of parallax to new levels!
