Hampstead (remake of Spectrum Quill game)   2 comments

The Alpha version of a new text adventure remake is up.

Forum thread

Here’s a description: (from here)

You start off in your disgusting flat in north-west London watching ‘1-2-3’ on TV (presumably you couldn’t get any lower than that!). Having decided that life surely has more to offer, you begin to progress up the social scale – until you have satisfied all the requirements necessary to attain ‘Hampstead’. The idea is that you’ll be able to pass into said borough and be accepted by the other inmates. Requirements, of course, include such material possessions as a big car and house … and you also need a good job, a nice wife (sexist devils!), and naturally you have to be seen in the right places wearing the right clothes.

(Tip of the hat to Retro Remakes.)

  1. it’s nowhere near ready and due to personal circumstances and the memories of the time I was developing it the game might never be finished. :(

  2. Hi,

    Hope you manage to get it made, I loved playing it when I was younger and would love to play it again so that I can complete it.

    From what I remember it was very hard.
