We should probably get round to doing this ;)

Which ones were we talking about again? Wavelength would be a nice one...

Top Banana and Big Bang.

And I really want to play Pleb Up Pleb Down again.

32-bit.

All the 8 bit ones are either effectively (but not officially) in the public domain, or Superior still own them ;)

Berty's been hard to track down in the past. I had his address from when he moved to Psygnosis, but since he stopped work on Posty it's been a bit more difficult.

The full registered version of Tags currently costs $6.00
Hmm. Evil American money, yet a British web host :o

I suppose someone could ask on the forums.

Hmm... the font and lack of apostrophes look like his work ;) And he did use to go by the name of Flossy for a while, so McFloss and ElFlosso isn't too far off.

I have the demo of Wavelength somewhere (AU cover disk iirc), great game, and I used to have the demo of Hamsters. Also great. Never had the full version of either.

I do still have PuPd though, and it's an excellent game!

You remember how Rich wasn't around here for about five months? That's where he was. And all he wanted was to borrow the stapler. :P

I'm quite happy to do all the website stuff for this if it all comes off - I need a break from G&T stuff, and I've now got my weekends free :)

Which reminds me, we should do something about this Asylum compo :|

Ah, but both of those involve real work ;)

Actually, see G&T - I am doing work recently, but it's just all gone on that. I'm sure I can take some time off from it.

Which reminds me, we should do something about this Asylum compo :|
And that, too :|
All we need is some sample newly-designed levels to get people started, and a quick compo page giving the rules - I would think I could come up with that.

Do you fancy doing a quick sample level as well? :)

I've got a quarter of a full-size level done already. I'm not actively working on it at the moment, but if you let me know that the competition is going to happen then I'll try and get it finished off :)

Let me get started on it then, just so I definitely don't waste your time - I'll e-mail you this weekend...

Whatever happened to bug hunter? (or is it just too crap to bother with? (Or am I totally not understanding this thread?))

Don't know about the first BugHunter, but BugHunter II (in Space) was GREAT. Add it to the list!

I reckon the UFOs have given up following Paul Vigay and have latched on to him. He's got some grey alien midget sticking a probe up his nose right now. 9|

Either that, or he's busy working :frown:
