Bit of a hero is Minter. Not just for the games (partial to llamatron myself, also tempest 2000 but only emulated - not buying a jaguar for one game). Bit of a pionneer of all the trippy light visualisation stuff too.

He had a cameo in the interactive black mirror episode a few years back.

Prolific games writer, I regularly used to write items for the magazine ZZAP64, now that brings back memories.

I used buy ZZAP64 as a young lad.  Great magazine.

Yeah I saw him in that, did a double take as he looked familiar but not until the credits did I see it was him.

Some fantastic emulators out there for PC and Android to relive those old game memories.

There are still a few sites out there that have old copies of this digitzed, it was indeed a great magazine.

My picture is in several of the issues and no not the hand drawn images an actual photo, I lost my copies when I left my ex wife, she burnt them all and none have so far been scanned and replicated online, but I will send you the link if I find them.

It will be interesting to see how the Football Manager games integrate Covid into them.
