RISC OS games development is hampered by development time and the ports by Alan Buckley and the Unix Porting Project (not to forget the many independent desktop card/board games by others) have provided a steady stream of releases for this platform for years.

However, these 8-bit programs will all run on RISC OS machines. Given that there's now three development streams for BBC Micro emulation development on RISC OS it would be a brilliant time for a mutitasking version of Beebit or 6502em to emerge onto the scene. This would bring all the new (and 1000+ old) games titles to the convenience of the RISC OS desktop and bring a great retro environment into the hands of modern RISC OS programmers - many of whom grew up or "cut their teeth" on the Beeb.
