People are still making stuff for the Sinclair related machines. Tell us about new games and other software that runs on the Spectrum, ZX80/ZX81, Pentagon and Next.

If so, sounds cool!

We had discussed it very very briefly last year and again this weekend where I said I’d pencil in a start for next year. You would get highly stylised isometric graphics - Spectrum palette no colour clash, of course - if we went down that route, though ;)
Still, only after Melkhior’s Mansion is finished, released and I’ve had an extended break from pixels (as in, pretty much the rest of 2020!) will it ever get considered!

Feel like it would also suffer the Paperboy problem, where the actual game area ends up being very restrictive. I'd almost rather someone went the other way and made a top-down Paperboy.

The idea would be that you could switch the view to see more/get access to further parts of the play area.
