Yeah, it's an interesting watch, isn't it?

I produced the title loading screen for it, here's the version without the banner

I'm extending this vertically to include the whole window and making it like a movie poster with the title and documentary details. This "The Light Revealed" will be the first A3 print of my new Spectrum graphics illustrations.

Yet another interview that has to have the constant stupid, pointless background music... it really is tick..plinky.. tick..tick..tick. plinky...tick... annoying and I can't focus on what Bo is mumbling about.
Yes, I have perfect hearing.

Very nice screen redballoon.

The only blocky color readilly visible, it's that white one on the top of the tower.
The rest, is very well handled and hidden.

Very nice interview too.

Thanks!
That’s right - there was no acceptable alternative to me regarding that part at the time.

Just an idea, but maybe you could add a flag pole, to hide it with something sensible.

It’s a decent idea but I refer you to my previous comment ;) I did try a flagpole but I removed it pretty quickly for various reasons. The main non-technical one is that there should be no flagpole.

That's just nitpicking.

Oh no! There's no flagpole because it held the Sky dish and when the subscription was cancelled, the engineers took everything. :cry:

Cool video (and extra screen), I'm just about okay with the elevator music (well I habituated to it).

Bo seems a really nice guy, he must be in his fifties now and looks in good condition*.

He couldn't complete Fairlight! I find it really strange to release a game where even the author can't complete it, irrespective of "how little content" there is.

I'd never heard of his multicolour game that never was (Nexus?), presumably there is no trace of it?

*If he gives SC his blessing to host Fairlight I'll upgrade that to great :D
