A very early entry for a game we don’t even know the title for yet.

This was a title mentioned by Geoff Phillips as being in development at Orpheus around 1986 time.

It was farmed out to a set of developers in Colchester – but after 2 months work, there was nothing to show and the company had lost their programmer and had no way to complete it.

There was a very bad meeting with the war game company’s boss to explain that the game could not be delivered, and that was that.

It is likely that nothing will ever be found of the 2 months worth of work, but it would be good to put a name to the game and close the case on this one.  Do you know any more?

Geoff Phillips talks about the game from his Orpheus days:

“One C64 development was for a war game – I’m sorry I really can’t remember anything more than that – we farmed it out to a set of developers in Colchester, paid them an advance. Two months later, nothing to show for it – the company had lost their programmer, and had no way to complete it. I had a very, very bad meeting with the war game company’s boss to explain that we couldn’t deliver the game… just horrible.”
