I’ve found that the adventure game I wrote for the ZX Spectrum when I was 17 got a pretty good review in Your Sinclair. I never noticed at the time as I went off to University (and there certainly weren’t a flood of royalties – it was the end of the Spectrum heyday).
The game was published by Zenobi Software, who published a large number of adventure games on the Spectrum, and written using the Professional Adventure Writing System (PAWS). I think I made £60 out of it… Still, I was proud of it at the time and seeing it reviewed in a national magazine is very satisfying.
