Hello AppGameKit friends!

Please, I just want to ask if that is real?

I imagine that one day it will be possible to use eg AGK2 language, and compilation to the old platform (ZX-Spectrum, C64, Amiga...)

What do you think about it?
Thank you!

such things are possible, I wrote a PlayBASIC to 68K convertor many years ago, for mostly my own amusement..

legacy platforms a very different beast to approach though, so such a cross compiler would need to heavily redact the command sets in order to get something that's remotely feasible.

Thank you for answer!
It would be a marketing bomb! If this existed, AGK2 would have been immortal

Is there by any chance any news in this regard?

Given TGC aren't particularly interested in retro platforms, this is, so exporting to some legacy 8 / 16 / 32 bit platfiorm is highly unlikely.

You could write a translator but that's beyond the scope of the question I guess.
