Next ZX Spectrum

October 18, 2016 — 3 Comments

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.

Rise of the Tomb Raider

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.

 

Arduboy Arrived

Super excited to get my new Arduboy from Kickstarter. Besides being incredibly cool I think it will be amazing for education (future game coders and Arduino fans.)

I’m stoked to have #1 hot off the presses!
   
 

Recreated ZX Spectrum

September 17, 2015 — Leave a comment

I ordered the Recreated ZX Spectrum and it’s in the mail, can’t WAIT to try it out!  (I was one of the Kickstarter backers.)  The ZX Spectrum (thanks to Sir Clive Sinclair) was a MAJOR boost to my career and it’s awesome to see it being brought back in a really smart way.  (It’s a Bluetooth keyboard so you can touch/feel the original device, but it will run any game instantly through an emulator on all mobile devices.)

The device is here:

The games are here (remember this is INCREDIBLY retro stuff):
