Hi all,

Dbug, it seems John S. Sinclair replied to your comment on Zorgons Revenge ;)
http://www.oric.org/software/zorgon_s_revenge-545.html

Glad to see he's still around, I'd love to make a small interview (having to read again the one Steve made though).

Surprise :)

What would be awesome is if we could contact him and see if still somewhat has the source code of his games.

It's a long time since I did the interview. He seemed easy enough to talk to. He was in touch via email and I sent him the questions to reply as he wished. I have his email address still but not sure if it is still valid.

Would be so great to have him around, and especially neat if he could dig into the sources for some of his games ..

The first game I got for my Oric-1 was Zorgon's Revenge. It was stunning for the time. John S. Sinclair, Nick Sinclair, Keith Sinclair... :D
