It's cool that this game is included with a firmware-update of the C64 mini. Great game, I finished it and bought Soulless 2. :)

AN EPIC ARCADE ADVENTURE FOR THE COMMODORE 64!
A powerful warrior King, tired of constant battle and the smell of blood declares peace on the land he rules ... But his generals crave war and plan to overthrow the King. Enlisting the help of an evil wizard the King is cursed using unholy magic. His human body is twisted and deformed into a beastly form, his human soul is stolen! Locked away in a tomb the cursed King is all but forgotten while an unending war rages on for a thousand years ... Until one day a great quake shakes the land and smashes the wall of the Tomb holding the beast. Now he is FREE and is determined to reclaim his human soul and once again bring peace to the land.

Soulless takes you on an epic quest around a huge exquisitely detailed map packed with objects to search and monsters to avoid as you desperately try to find your human soul.

Will the Special Edition be available here too?
Hi, the Special Edition was produced as part of a Kickstarter so a digital download will not be made available - sorry!
That's sad but I understand! Just purchased Soulless 2 to dry my tears. ;)
edit: On your website I see that if I purchase a physical edition I get a digital version of the game too, so there is a digital download version, just not on itch.io?
I thought I read somewhere there is an enhanced version of this game. That adds a save feature and some other refinements?
Really nice. I love old school games.
I had a chance to play this on my C64 Mini (US Version) In fact, I bought Soulless for the purpose of playing it on my C64 MIni. I thought the game was good and had the difficulty of the older games. I actually ended up live streaming this one.
This looks great! NTSC compatible?
Just wow! Yes, i could have downloaded it for free, but this game is so much fun and has a great soundtrack. Runs perfectly on my C64 mini.
