Current account status -$2880 ($120 x 24 months)
It cannot continue at such a loss.
Thank you for being companions for 23 years journey.
ASSEMbler Games is the place that get the very first information about Mario Takes America for CD-i!
It is more than just CD-i, this a place that helped people to develop all kind of game’s systems, selling stuff and so much more… A major lost for internet and gaming lovers! ;(
It is in fact a little bit stranger for a forum to be so expensive… $120 each months…?
I do believe there is lower prices for the objective of the forums.
If nobody buy the forum or if no money is found to pay the bills, then the last breath will be Saterday 29th of 2019…
