If you check across the internetty thingy, there should be a couple of competitions to win DVDs of the first film, especially at LORD A*SE. 🙂

Had a great time interviewing Jon Hare, co-founder of Sensible Software, for my Memoirs of a Spectrum Addict movie. Do you want to know about the origins of Twister, Wizball, Wizkid, Cannon Fodder and Sensible Soccer? Want to know Jon’s thoughts about Cannon Fodder on the Spectrum? Want to know if Rem kicked Jon’s ass on the latest build of Jon’s new Sociable Soccer? Well you’ll need to order the film then…. 🙂

It was a sunny cold winter’s day as I popped down to Jon Hare’s house for an ultimate fanboy moment. Yes, I was a fan of Wizball and Wizkid, but – wow. This man designed Cannon Fodder! And Sensible Soccer! All will be revealed in Memoirs of a Spectrum Addict, due for its premiere around the end of August 2016, and which can be preordered by clicking the image to the right.

And yes, Jon did win 4-1 on the new Sociable Soccer. He looked suitably gutted when I scored, though, ha ha ha!!!!! (evil cackle).
