Crackers I: The Gold Rush is being shipped (18.04.2021 - 16:59 Uhr)
Software piracy in the 80s and 90s is the subject of the latest work by Marco A. Breddin (Borders trilogy). It deals with the groups and people of the cracker scene, who mostly appeared under pseudonyms for good reason. The "end users" knew the cracks, which were passed on through many channels.
Unlike Borders, the development of the Atari ST does not serve as a hook and former crackers of the 8-bit scene and the Amiga also have their share. However, the list of celebrated groups reads like a Who's Who of the ST cracker scene. Readers can look forward to lots of background information and a generously illustrated book, which is currently shipping for supporters of the crowdfounding campaign.
Those who missed this campaign can currently order the 336-page book for 35 Euros in the Microzeit store. A follow-up title is already being planned.
