July 15, 2013 · Comments Off on Zéphyr relaunches

In our June cover story, Antoine Vignau of Brutal Deluxe detailed how he first came across the 8-bit shooter game Zéphyr and proceeded to work with programmer Richard Soberka and Froggy Software CEO Jean-Louis Le Breton to finally release the game to the Apple II community. Zéphyr was published this spring as a physical 5.25" floppy disk with printed manual, for which there was great demand:

We debuted Zéphyr on March 22 with consecutive eBay auctions for the first three copies, signed by Jean-Louis and Richard. The highest winning bid on the three was 81 euros. We then sold 75 physical (but unsigned) copies directly on brutaldeluxe.fr through PayPal for five euros plus shipping. These copies went on sale on April 10 and sold out on April 22!

But Juiced.GS is not in the business of teasing its readers! Even though our cover story was published months after Zéphyr went out of print, the game is now available again — this time, as a downloadable disk image. "Purchase it and you will get a double-sided floppy disk image (French and US versions)," says Brutal Deluxe's online store. "Floppy disk image means you get an electronic file, not a real floppy disk!" The price is a mere single euro — $1.31 USD at current exchange rates.

Unfortunately, it is still too late to get in on the original limited run. But you can vicariously enjoy the experience of opening your own copy of Zéphyr with our unboxing video:
