Merry Christmas

Well that’s me done for another year. This hasn’t been a spectacular year for retro related stories on this blog but hopefully next year will be better. What I can say is that over the last month I’ve been working on a new design for a ZX Spectrum game. I don’t want to give too much away bit it will contain ghosts and a multi levelled mansion (no it’s not an Attic Attack remake). I don’t plan on linking it to my Iron Sphere character but I’m not ruling out a tentative link as the game design develops. As it is rare for me to have any spare time so don’t expect to see this game finished until this time next year. Hopefully I’ll be able to show some video clips of something working by the second quarter. Just like my other games, this will be released through Cronosoft (assuming they want it). 

Wishing you all a merry Christmas and a retro rated New Year.

Secret Santa

My colleagues know my interests and hobbies so well. This year my “Secret Santa” got me a short wave radio kit. That’s me sorted Christmas afternoon after a massive dinner.

Sweets at Christmas

By popular demand, here is a picture of a tin of sweets provided by the company for Christmas. As a bonus, one my colleagues brought in a cake made by his wife. We don’t go short on food here at work.

Christmas is work

I’ve just been pressganged into putting up the Christmas decorations at work. Lots of sticky tape and paper clips were used in creating a winter wonderland. Careful planning was used to cause maximum inconvenience to taller members of staff… Ho Ho Ho :)
