I'm going to have to let Dan sort out my Veteran uplift - since I've pledged for boxed set of four hardbacks but already pledged for paperbacks of Drew's and Allen Stroud's books (and I have two versions of Fusion already (Kindle and a Smashw...

Yup, that seems to be a common feature of our Mo Sistas... (my wife is struggling to look at me at the moment...)

Re: Another KickStarter - 8-bit oldtimers - Hewson Games

I played Paradroid, Uridium and AlleyKat* to completion and then when I got my Amiga I played Pinball Dreams a lot, really, really, a lot.

(Andrew Braybrook was my programming hero - what he managed to get the C64 to do was quite astonishing)

Another KickStarter - 8-bit oldtimers - Hewson Games

OK, I know we've got a lot of 8-bit old timers on the boards.

Re: TAF in v1.77

I'm hoping that, eventually, that the in-system trip, along the space lane is so full of life and exciting (and necessary?) that it becomes an integral part of the game.
