He was on TV very recently, was it on a politics show ? culture show on the BBC... Cant recall now. Wonder if he would do an interview for the mag ? Mmmm...

I would like to see an interview with the German based www.ngdevteam.com and a feature on their forthcoming & sublime looking "Last Hope" for the Dreamcast, Neo-Geo AES & CD

I'd like to read an interview with David Jones who did the Magic Knight games. I loved Finders Keepers and Spellbound. Spellbound consumed most of my school summer holiday one year. The other games looked great too, but I never took the time to get into them.

An interview with Alan Sugar would be great, as would Clive Sinclair. He's written the foreword for a Spectrum book recently so he might be interested in talking again.

Now there is a person who you could put on the cover would everyone would recognise!

Actually I'm surprised that RG hasn't done an Apprentice tie-in. Alan Sugar on the cover etc.

I believe in Retro Gamer so much that I'm giving my fee to Great Ormand Street Hospital.

Paul Woakes does very much exist - I met him a couple of years ago when he was looking to get back into the games industry.

He'd been out of the industry for a while writing databases for supermarkets!

What a waste of talent! He even showed me a copy of PC Damocles (the one that got canned by Psygnosis)

After that he vanished off the face of the earth when I tried to get back in contact with him :o(

- Paulie.

I'd like to see an interview / feature on Piranha. (ISTR this was definitely a codeshop & not just a label)
They did the excellent Trap Door game (spectacular if somewhat clunky Spectrum graphics and a remix of the theme tune) and a bunch of 2000AD tie-ins, as well as a text adventure based on Terry Pratchett's The Colour of Magic, before folding and leaving a few games MIA.

Another vote for Mike Singleton.

He may have already talked about Lords of Midnight, but I missed that issue and you should all have to see the same information again for my benefit. :P

However, I'd also love to know about the Midwinter games (especially as Midwinter 2 is one of my favourite Amiga games ever) and Shadowfax.

Not to mention his recent work on Wrath Unleashed, a game that was so obviously a 'tribute' to Archon it's not even funny.

How about AKI, the developers behind all those wrestling and fighting titles such WCW/nWo Revenge, WWF no mercy, Virtual Pro Wrestling 2 and the Def Jam series?
