A little gaming tidbit that might interested you... At E3 this year, the Adventure Company (US company, I think) were showing Ankh - Tales of Mystery, and a certain Jan Klose was interviewed about it. They even mentioned that the original game was release on Acorn RISC OS! Going back to the thread, there's really very very little demand for games any more in this market. The remaining RISC OS owners tend to fit a fairly narrow demographic - one which doesn't play games. We have hundreds of games in the loft, which simply don't sell, even when we drop prices to cost price (or less) at shows :-< I appreciate that this may be because of genre/price, but even so, that's the underlying reason why new games development isn't hugely practical.
