Slightly Magic 8bit Legacy Edition, now on Kickstarter
« on: November 23, 2013, 05:03:34 AM »
Slightly Magic was an arcade-adventure game written by Colin Jones and released in 1991 by Codemasters for the Amiga, Amstrad CPC, Atari ST, Commodore 64 and ZX Spectrum. The game play has been compared to Dizzy, where the player must explore and find items in order to proceed. Slightly Magic expanded upon this concept by incorporating spells, that when merged with certain items, can alter the main characters physical structure into a bird, fish, and even an invisible form of himself.

The rights to the game have recently reverted back to Colin Jones, who upon playing the game after so many years quickly realized that there was room for improvement. His desire was not only to remake this retro classic for a variety of systems (Windows, Mac, iOS, Android, Linux, OUYA), but also to finally release the lost trilogy of Slightly games.

OUYA has agreed to match each pledge up to a max of $250,000. If enough money is raised, then Jones will release an updated build of Slightly Spooky, his unreleased [yet completed] sequel to the 1st game. He will also plan and develop the final game in the trilogy, something he has always desired to accomplish.

If you enjoy classic retro gaming, grew up with one of the systems Slightly Magic was released on, or simply want to support a good cause, navigate to the Kickstarter campaign. For more about the game be sure to check the links below.

Earth has a lot of things other folks might want... like the whole planet. And maybe these folks would like a few changes made, like more carbon dioxide in the atmosphere and room for their way of life. - William S. Burroughs
