Text adventure from Kayde who went into administration at the 26th August 1983. Did Spectrum releases, tried to do C64 and Vic 20 ones, which never seemed to surface.
The game in the advert (Two adverts were submitted by Peter Weighill) was described as follows:
“In his job, Colin Grasmere has investigated many strange and baffling phenomena. Hauntings visions, flying saucers, poltergeists, to name a few. Colin Grasmere is a psychic investigator. Dare you face the beastly one with nothing but a cross and a heart full of purity?”
Originally we did not know exactly how far the game got or if it actually ever got released before the company collapsed, but GTW contributor Kevin Steele recently found the game on Ebay. You can see the inlay and tape of the game in the scans below.
So the game did get a release, and also Kevin found Leopard Lord. The very odd thing is that the game does not come with a proper inlay, and is on a recycled Leopard Lord tape. A game that only just sneaked out when the company was in big trouble?
In March 2017, Kevin managed to get the game backed up and recovered from a damaged tape. Then in December 2017, Hedning/Genesis Project kindly fixed the game into an original file from its freeze state.
Just how many copies are there out there in the world of this? Case closed!
