This issue features a Juiced.GS first: variant covers! Both "Fire" and "Ice" editions commemorate Shadowgate, the Apple IIGS point-and-click adventure that's been resurrected for a new generation of gamers. We spoke with original co-creator Karl Roelofs about how development team Zojoi updated this classic game with new art, user interface, puzzles, and challenges. Here's a video showing the new Shadowgate, as well as the new availability of the Apple IIGS version of the game in a Mac/Windows environment:

October 4, 2014 · Comments Off on Juiced.GS now available in French

For almost as long as the Apple II has existed, French developers have pushed the machine to its limits. From the Free Tools Association (FTA) to Brutal Deluxe, the contributions of these elite programmers have benefitted the global Apple II community, both decades ago and today.

Juiced.FRThe Apple II is still strong in France, and Juiced.GS has eagerly covered many of its developments, such as last year's cover story about Zéphyr, a game developed by Froggy Software in 1987 and released by Brutal Deluxe in 2013. But it's not just editorial content that the country has contributed to the magazine: among Juiced.GS subscribers, France is the most represented country where English is not the primary language.

As a token of thanks for France's many years of support and community, Juiced.GS is pleased to announce that the September 2014 issue of Juiced.GS is now available in French. The entire 20 pages were translated from the original English by Antoine Vignau of Brutal Deluxe and has been made available in hardcopy at no additional charge to our native French speakers.

This one-time collaboration is not expected to be repeated for back issues or future releases, but collectors and francophiles can still get a copy of Juiced.FR from our online store. Once our limited quantities are exhausted, we do not expect additional copies to be made available for purchase ever again. Get yours today!

Volume 19, Issue 2 (June 2014)

Juiced.GS's second issue of 2014 has now shipped! In our cover story, we celebrate the fiftieth anniversary of the BASIC programming language, invented in 1964 at Dartmouth College. Apple II historian Steve Weyhrich walks us through the development of the language and the role it played in the popularity of the Apple II, and how our favorite personal computer helped bring programming to the masses. With interviews from Mike Westerfield and Wade Clarke and featuring the works of Steve Wozniak, Ivan Drucker, and Jeff Fink, this feature is not to be missed.

One early BASIC programmer was Ron Graff, developer of such programs as Keyboard Organ and Supermath. While Antoine Vignau of Brutal Deluxe was archiving Apple II cassette software, he came across Graff's work, published by Innovative Computer, Magnemedia, and Innerglo. This interview looks at the early days of programming and how Graff balanced this technical pursuit with his ministry.

Just as crowdfunding (featured on the cover of our March 2012 issue) has made it easier for personal projects to come to life, so too has 3D printing made many an imagined object into a tangible product. Charles Mangin of option8 has developed several such objects inspired by the Apple II. In his Tech-torial, he walks us through how to get started with 3D printing and use it to create Apple II parts and models.

Not enough tech for you? David Schmidt takes you behind the scenes of ADTPro, which can get your Apple II up and running without a single floppy or hard disk. Learn exactly how bootstrapping works in his Connections article.

Finally, we have three reviews for you. Andy Molloy looks at Vintage Game Consoles: An Inside Look at Apple, Atari, Commodore, Nintendo, and the Greatest Gaming Platforms of All Time, by Bill Loguidice and Matt Barton. One of the book's twenty chapters focuses on the Apple II and its many great games. Meanwhile, Ken Gagne reviews two documentaries about chiptune music: 2008's Reformat the Planet, and 2014's Europe in 8 Bits. Turns out what inspires young musicians to turn their favorite 8-bit machines into musical instruments isn't much different from the spirit that drives the Apple II community to continue hacking.
