Next ZX Spectrum

Well, wow. As someone who’s wanted to dip a toe into programming and yes, play Speccy games (we never got this console in the west), this is quite a great thing.

I love that the site notes this new Spectrum isn’t set to be a boutique-priced braggart collectible at all, but an actual functioning computer made to make and play Speccy games old and new. Excellent.

Thanks, Dave! 😀

I’m really surprised to be typing that there’s going to be a new ZX Spectrum, it’s been FOREVER since my career really took off developing games for the original one.  My big break was the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (called the Hero Turtles in the UK), that gave me a #1 Hit and plenty of work followed.

It’s now a museum piece of hardware and so I must admit I’m excited to see this team making a new one, it’s a retro dream!  (Heck, it even looks cool!)

They have a surprise in the FAQ that it will run ZX81 games as well.  Are you kidding?

I just signed up for their newsletter…  Will be interesting to see it develop.
