Default Kalypso Media - Buys Commandos Rights

July 12th, 2018, 14:02
DSOGaming reports that Kalypso Media has bought the rights to the Commandos games originally made by Pyro.

Kalypso Media has announced that it has secured all rights to the highly-acclaimed fan-favourite gaming IP, Commandos. Commandos is a stealth-oriented real-time tactics game series set in World War 2, and Kalypso will re-release some older games to current-gen platforms and will start working on a brand new title.

I remember playing a game called Commando on a arcade machine? Though I'm probably wrong and this a game with a similar name, but has nothing to do with what I said.

Yep finished the article nothing to do with my nostalgia.

Update: This comment says it all from the linked site.
So they're gonna take some of the most complex mouse and keyboard games ever made and bastardise them for consoles and controllers and call them remakes. And then theyre gonna make a new game. For all platforms.

It's not the Commando arcade game, CouchPotato. The Commando game you speak about is more like an action game, from Rambo times. Yes, I played it too

In the Commandos games (from Pyro), you lead a squad of men doing infiltration missions in the World War II setting, where each commando has unique abilities.

Yeah figured that out after reading the link, but I have so many fond memories of my local pizza joint playing that game in the late 1980's and early 1990's.

Actually, no
I was referring to the arcade song theme (I never played a C64)

I had this back in the day for my commodore, lost quite a few hours in it. A new game in this genre would be good.

Guys,

The thread IS NOT about the old C64/Arcade Commando game. It is about the Commandos series from 1998 to 2006, please see link https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Commandos_(series)

The thread quickly derailed to Commando arcade/C64 game, but now I'm putting it on the right track

Maybe Kalypso will buy rights for Commando too (and hire Arnold for voice overs) so we are actually on track, just ahead of time.

BTW: that C64 music is better than arcade version.

Slap 'em back into line, henriquejr!

Anyone ever play Heavy Barrel? Similar format. That game was nuts.

Yeah I remember Heavy Barrel, but I didn't care for it as much as I enjoyed Commando.

Kalypso do not have the funds to release proper products, they get closer and closer to the crowdfunded scene in this regard.

Products are released at 50/60 pc completion stages.

C64 didn't use MIDI music

Anyway, I love Commandos - especially the second one. If they keep the coop multiplayer, this could be neat.
