Cheers for the PM. I'd also messaged you on the specnext forum too but you can ignore that now.

This is a very good idea, fitting so well with the Xmas spirit, which always was a Speccy time (I remember playing loads of spectrum games with my cousin in New years eve!).

Hehe that Soko XXX must be fun :D

Looking forward to seeing what will come up finally and thanks Dave for the so good idea (which was also really fun last year with some entertaining games -that I have to come back again some time-).

Okayy I should be able to start writing the magazine soon (I'm ****ed otherwise!) ready for a mid December release.

Just a last call for magazine content, if anyone has an idea for a short article, joke mockup*, mashup, cartoon, or even the loading screen could they let me know. Some of the articles are already decided so best to PM me as it may be already covered.

Big thanks to everyone that has a game in development for this.

*possibly inspired by Pete Prodge's thread

By the way, if anyone was planning to do a modern mockup I’ve bagsied Breaking Bad.

(Unless someone like redballoon wanted to do BB, which would piss all over mine)

Do I understand correctly that you are interested in Speccy screens being mockups of some existing games?

If so, I have some old work that I have never shown to anybody and could share it now.

I meant new mockups, e.g what would Game of Thrones look like if release today, but thinking again I'd be interested in any mockups (Giana Sisters, Mire Mare, whatever).

I'll send you a PM.

Email sent.

I'd really love to help more with your project but unfortunately real life gets in and my time is short recently :( And I'm also trying to finish a bit bigger game for this Spanish competition from another thread.

Don't suppose anyone wants to do a 'guess the game from the graphic' quiz for the mag?

It would need to be 12 or 16 tiles*, fairly easy to guess, and based around an interesting theme.

Post here (but not the tiles!) or drop me a pm if so.

*16 X 16 pixels

I started to create something in the CGD, but I mistakenly used CGD 1.0. Is there a known bug that was poke fixed in that version for sprites that go missing once placed on the map? i.e, they don't appear at all!
