Not sure, but quite soon. The first volume is fully edited, copyedited and proofread. The seven new covers are ready. I want to have the second volume fully edited etc before I put the first one out.

interview about Elite Z80 conversions

Elite conversion interview in Retro Gamer, Aug 2022—interview with Ricardo PintoElite conversion interview in Retro Gamer, Aug 2022, page 32

In the 1980s, in the Neolithic of the computer game industry, myself and three friends, Mark Wighton, Dominic Prior and Phil Mochan—working under the name Torus—converted the highly successful game Elite into Z80 versions for the ZX Spectrum and Amstrad CPC. So, when Rory Milne phoned me up to ask me about it, I dredged into the murky dep

Ricardo Pinto, The Third God

“A verdade está inscrita na estrutura do mundo, apenas temos de saber lê-la.”
Ricardo Pinto, The Third God

Topics Mentioning This Author

“What you call passion is not a spiritual force, but friction between the soul and the outside world. Where passion dominates, that does not signify the presence of greater desire and ambition, but rather the misdirection of these qualities toward and isolated and false goal, with a consequent tension and sultriness in the atmosphere. Those who direct the maximum force of their desires toward the center, toward true being, toward perfection, seem quieter than the passionate souls because the flame of their fervor cannot always be seen. In argument, for example, they will not shout or wave their arms. But, I assure you, they are nevertheless, burning with subdued fires.”
Hermann Hesse, The Glass Bead Game
