This is a link post You lot know who Jeff Minter is, right..? I made this!
...because I'm making a film about him. The project has been in development for a year or so, and the first look teaser is finally online. Take a look. You might like it.

Subject: jesus fucking christ

not seeing a lot of reason to continue even trying to make games, at this point, when a remake of Frogger, one of the worst games in the history of old arcade games, can outsell Space Giraffe that we put so much love and effort into, by more than ten to one, in one week.

OK, we get the message. All you want on that channel is remakes of old, shite arcade games and crap you vaguely remember playing on your Amiga.

We'll shut up trying to do anything new then.

Sorry for even trying.

Edit: Oh I see. Well, he does have a point. Frogger was always shit.

Used to drive past a field of llamas in Mid-Wales that I'm pretty sure were his.

This is a normal post still the YaK G.O.A.T.
I met Jeff at a huge games expo back when I was a junior computer mag scribbler. He was being very enthusiastic about the Konix Multisystem, so that would've been nigh-on 30 years ago.

I've always been crap at his games, though. Five a Day was nice, though.

I used to work for Incentive Software in Reading and Jeff would occasionally pop into the shop, and I remember him a very nice guy.

Once he invited us all round for an evening of playing with his new light-synth for the Atari ST, "Colourspace". Big projector, a few drinks, Pink Floyd on the stereo... a fun evening.

This is a normal post A god indeed
I had colourspace on my trusty STE, and thought it was ACE! If I recall correctly it was on an ST Format cover disk...

And I still refuse to part company with my ancient Atari Jaguar purely because of T2K.
