An interesting game demo finding on Ashley Routledge’s disks recently came in the shape of Quantarallax, which is an early Delta sort of clone that never seemed to get released.
The game was developed by Quantum Designs, who consisted of Richard (Froodle) Hawkins and Shane (Chain) Mussell for this particular project. We are not sure if it was intended to try and get a publisher.
It probably ended up with Ash and Dave, as Richard was from the Eastbourne area where Ash and Dave were based at the time, and used to speak to them a lot.
This preview also seems to be very early and just allows you to shoot loads of ships and not much else. Did it ever get much further than this?
We hope to hear from both Richard and Shane soon about the game, so watch this space! For now, here is the demo that was found.
