And now for something a little different……
If the picture below means anything to you then probably :-
– you’re in your forties
– you’re a little more round in the middle than you would like
– you owned a BBC Micro (or at least like me you had a father who bought one)
– you spent quite a bit of time playing arguably the best computer game ever – Elite
And the reason for this nostalgic post? David Braben (one of the original creators of Elite along with Ian Bell) has a Kickstarter fundraiser running to enable a new version of this classic game to be produced.
The Kickstarter page is here and contains a lot of information about the game including gameplay videos, concept art and interviews. It currently has 11 days left to go and as I type still needs £313,062 to meet its target.
So what are you waiting for? If you want to re-live your youth then go and pledge some money. If you don’t want to re-live yours or you’re one of those disgustingly young people then pledge some money so I can re-live mine.
