Those original airbrushed artworks are a sight to behold!

Far more impressive than the original coloured pencil knockoffs by untalented 10-year-old that adorned my bedroom walls.

I know they really are great and you just don't see that kind of artwork anymore now that CGI is standard. I used to spend my time making bad pencil knockoffs too, but was lucky enough to have a lot of the posters.

AFTER PARTY!

Post by RobHewson » Sat Oct 05, 2013 4:59 am

If you are going to Play Expo, why not follow it up with the after party on the Saturday night. It's for a good cause too! Will be there with Andrew Hewson fresh from his talk, so join us to chat retro games over a pint or two:

Thank you for uploading all this great stuff! I was a massive Steve Turner fan. He got some incredible results out of the 48k Spectrum. Dragontorc was genius. Such an amazing atmospheric RPG written in next to no memory.

Backed! £20 for a hard copy :D

Rob, Can you refresh my memory regarding what was said to those that were going to back this from the Replay event?

People who signed up at Play Expo and backed on day one at £25 or higher (and maintain this backing level or higher at the end of the campaign) get a special thanks in the book.
