Hehe, it’s so fun to watch all the major video game companies getting behind Cloud Gaming.  Makes me so happy.

 

I’m SUPER EXCITED about the new Arduboy! This I think is the best way to learn to program computers, to start by modifying games and then to make your own. It’s way more fun than starting with “Hello World” like every long-winded book offers. As a freebie, you also get to learn about controlling electronics in the process. If you have a kid, get them one of these and spend some time playing with it, there are a TON of free games online to start with.

Next ZX Spectrum

I’m really surprised to be typing that there’s going to be a new ZX Spectrum, it’s been FOREVER since my career really took off developing games for the original one.  My big break was the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (called the Hero Turtles in the UK), that gave me a #1 Hit and plenty of work followed.

It’s now a museum piece of hardware and so I must admit I’m excited to see this team making a new one, it’s a retro dream!  (Heck, it even looks cool!)

They have a surprise in the FAQ that it will run ZX81 games as well.  Are you kidding?

I just signed up for their newsletter…  Will be interesting to see it develop.

I’m obviously biased when it comes to certain games (working for Sony PlayStation) so I try to avoid game-spamming.  As I’ve been in the industry a long long time, I’m lucky enough to get to vote on games I respect, and this is definitely one of them. The work that went into this game is pretty remarkable and I’d highly recommend you give it a try.
