Anyone have Invasion of the Vorticons mail order floppy?

Post by springpop » Sun Jan 27, 2019 14:12

Hi guys,

I recently purchased Invasion of the vorticons ( one contains ep 1-3) original 3.5" apogee disk for around $40 from a private seller. Turns out after paying, the selller without asking me just felt like removing some small writing with an eraser but ended up damaging and smugding the entire label.

i'm in the process of returning it back now.

Does anyone have a original copy invasion of the vorticons copy you could sell. I'm a bit traumatized and maddened by this event and so would really appreciate it.

Hi springpop and welcome to PCKF. Doesnt look like anybody noticed your topic. I don't own that disk (and lamentably I cannot find the magazine 5 1/4 disk I had Keen1 on). It does sound like a bizzarre thing that happened to you/your disk. Have you any pictures to show us???

It would be interesting to find out who owns what sorts of copies of the various Keen games... perhaps I will make a poll om the topic.

Are you a collector of video game related items in general? Or is your enthusiasm focused in a more specific way towards Keen (the latter being the case for most members of this forum)?

From what I remember as a kid, the floppy disk games were ordered from a game magazine with teaser screenshots. The diskettes that I got were always 5 and 1/4 and had labels printed with the game title.

If I find my old Keen 1 diskette, I'll get it to you somehow. Unfortunately I haven't seen it since it was packed away several years ago.
