The Pickford BrothersJohn and Ste

« Return to Softography list

This was intended to be the follow up to John and Paul Ranson's game 'Ziggurat', with a much more ambitious game design. Ste worked on a comic strip intro to the game, and John and Paul worked in their spare time on the game design, back-story, some code fragments and a prototype of the game input system.

The project was abandoned when John and Paul both got a proper job developing video games at Binary Design in Manchester.
