1992 The Fourth Dimension
Platform: Acorn Archimedes (A3000, A310 and A400)
Within the book is an in-depth and detailed 8 page story about the unreleased Spitfire Fury by The Fourth Dimension for the Acorn Archimedes. A title where very little light has been shed until now. We speak to lead developer Andrew Hutchings, polygon creator Mark Ferguson and loading screen artist Stephen Scott. The book contains a number of specially re-pixelled screenshots by Trevor Storey from grainy screens shown in the game’s magazine advert.
Sadly Andrew no longer had anything of the game, so this is a short bonus DLC post – but during our research he provided us with a few photos and scans from that time. We also purchased an Archimedes magazine to make a hi-res scan of the game’s advert and screenshots, which you can find below in our gallery.
In September 2021, Stephen Scott dug out some later loading screens with added text and date stamped too, even a later version with more dramatic clouds added. These have now been added to the gallery.
It is still hoped that a copy will some day surface from a bizarre source.
