RIGHT normality partially resumed, sorry its took
me so long thinks have been fucking bleak lately for me to
say the least but I managed to cobble together the article,
apologies if its a bit like a patchwork quilt ive been
adding and subtracting stuff from it for a few years and
never managed to get it completely coherent

Wonderful piece of work M, well done, and I am sorry to hear
you've not had it easy lately.

I will digest all the info properly but I just wanted to say
one of the things I find fascinating is the "outtakes" and
tracks that could have been on there (SAWII), which you've
done a sterling job of going through those. I'd like your
thoughts on AB3 track 11 (CD only track #1), "Analogue
Bubblebath Vo. 3" on the Trance Europe Express compilation,
and whatever is playing in the background of Caustic
Window's "The Garden of Linmiri" - .... GO!

I also like to think what the Graphic Novel would have been
like. Maybe all sorts of acetates you could layer over each
other with some non-linear story, ZX code to program into
your spectrum and some moss spores that would grow on the
pages? Or maybe it would have been a romp where RDJ had to
rescue the master tapes for SAWII from an evil robot called
The Man and has all sorts of wacky adventures? Will he make
it in time for the rave in Cornwall? Choose your own
adventure? The mind boggles.

Cos I was going a bit mentally ill probably near the end of
the article through stress it might have ended like that!
"And by the way when I typed this sentence I was wearing
grey underwear" hows that for a factoid!

I know you're joking but that sounds like a really good
idea, all the moss spore prints and a type in basic text
adventure about the stolen master tapes. Right up my street
that!

I'm half joking because I like the idea too. My one aim, the
one aim I've ever had is to program a Text Adventure for the
Spectrum. After all these years I found a really good series
of articles from ZX Computing magazine (issues April, June,
August 1984) that spell (hoho) it out. "Creating an
Adventure Brain"

Imagine making the adventure that would go on the flexi disc
of a re-issue in some mad parallel timeline... Food for
thought.

yeah exactly, My brother is really bit on 8 bit era text
adventure games. I've been designing one myself for a while
now but its for modern platforms and going to use Inform to
implement it, its a little side project

adventures. The is one called trinity that I've played about
the first atomic bomb test, you do time travelling and stuff
IRRC. fantastic stuff!

Roger, LAZY_TITLE The Stranglers had one on the flip

of the bit Ear sculpture thats on the cover of their 1984
album "Aural Sculpture"

Not to derail the convo, which to he fair you did yourself
hiding your sizeable light under a marrow fat bushel, but I
do leave here the C&VG giveaway game The Thompson Twins Adventure

The first thing I put in was "Swim Sea" and they all
drowned.

Which I thought was a bit racist.

Even worse, if you put "Dig Sand" it says "Where's the
spade"... you couldn't make it up.

I've derailed the thread with bad 80s text adventure

Let's look again at Lanner Chronicle's exhaustive but never

Much like the speculation that fans such as ourselves like
to indulge in over SAWII and what may or may not have been
included in the bigger version, I found a parallel in
the The Thompson Twins Adventure game that, for want
of anything better to do, I completed this morning, nearly
40 years after its initial release.

There are two references in the game to a forthcoming The
Thompson Twins Adventure Series
produced by the software
house Quicksilva. However an Internet Search brought up no
such results. Not even on the wikipedia page for The
Thompson Twins Adventure
game, which I have since ameded
to include this information.

Similar to an expanded SAWII we can only imagine what an
enlarged The Thompson Twins Adventure game might have
looked like, expanding on that unique universe where Tom
Bailey, Alannah Currie and the black one, appear in swimwear
(though unable to swim) on a beach a bit like Lost. Probably
a game based on their hit "We Are Detective" rather than the
flop "Get That Love", but who knows?
