Mockingboard Support Update

As an excuse to remind you about our upcoming Kickstarter campaign on May 2nd, we have blatantly chosen this time to make this special announcement 🙂

Over the last few years, many people in the community have asked us to support the Mockingboard for in-game music in Nox Archaist.

You asked. We listened.

It's now official - Nox Archaist will have at least beta support for Mockingboard music when the game is released!

No, no, no. Not MockingBIRD. We're talking MockingBOARD here!

As things stand, the Mockingboard driver is functional and implemented with successful testing on a physical Enhanced Apple IIe and several emulators. What remains is creating additional music and debugging as we layer in the rest of the game content. We will attempt to test/debug across more Apple II models and emulators as well.

A special thanks to community contributors Tom Porter and Eric Rangell for their work on the Nox Archaist Mockingboard project, and also to Becky Burger, Tom Charlesworth for their advice. 

And, we hope to earn your support for our upcoming Kickstarter campaign!
