Staggeringly original, unique and impressive. The Sunday Times

It’s not often that a game hangs around for 30 years, but that’s exactly what happened to the ‘world’s first interactive movie’ which I initially programmed on the C64 in the 1980s.

In 2014 Mel Croucher, the game’s author asked me if I’d be interested in reprogramming the original for phones and tablets as well as desktops. I agreed at once, and suggested that we include new hires graphics as well as the original classic. Released in 2015 on iOS, android, OUYA, PC, Mac, Linux and Fire TV, the game remains for many a unique experience, and one which I’m delighted to have been a part of.
