Announcing the launch of a new 8-bit adventure book...
"Twilight Inventory is a collection of reviews of forgotten text adventure games from the 1990s.
Created by enthusiastic amateurs, during the last days of the 8-bit computers, these home-grown titles forsook the flashy graphics of commercial arcade game experiences, concentrating instead on devious puzzles, descriptive text and interesting stories. Taking inspiration from folklore, legends, films and books, these were games with tales and settings unvisited in mainstream titles both back then and now.
Featuring contemporary reviews and additional background information, this book is designed to give the reader a flavour of the small, but vibrant and flourishing, British adventure game scene of the early 1990s. A time when companies such as Zenobi Software, Compass, River, Tartan and FSF Adventures, kept a loyal community supplied with unique experiences, delivered through the postal system in a protective Jiffy bag."
Available from http://www.8bitag.com/ as a printed book (through Lulu, check their site for discount codes) and Amazon Kindle. Other distribution methods and formats may follow at a later date.
For a limited time, I'm also making a free download of the book available as a PDF from the website. If you do download it then please consider making a donation to charity, using the link provided.
Pimp your website, competition, event or other activity here, as long as it's Spectrum related.
