Re: What are your current Spectrum projects?

A series of A3 prints of brand new Spectrum pixel art illustrations for 12 - 15 classic ZX Spectrum games. Pictures or it didnt´t happen! :P Hah! Not all at once and only in-between paid work - I'm working on at least 2 books next year. But you'll at least see the 1st 2 near the beginning of 2018.

Re: Poll: Ocean early games

The thing is, I know all of them are pretty poor, but each and every one of those games in that poll mean something to me. I played them all in the early days of having my Spectrum and they were all something! Seeing the loading screen appear for Pogo. The wonderful abstract landscapes of the loadin...

Cassette release of "Vallation"

Shamelessly copied directly from Sokurah's original post, you can now actually buy the physical release of Vallation. http://tardis.dk/retro/vallation/images/vallation_logo.png As announced a while back, I’ve been working on a 128K version of Vallation. It was supposed to be out after 3-4 months, bu...

Re: Xelda
