We are excited to learn of yet another Ultimate game which was apparently in the works for the Commodore 64.
Following on from the successful conversion of Nightshade, Shahid Ahmad was offered the chance to convert both Knightlore and Alien 8 for Firebird Software.
Unfortunately though, things went sour with Ultimate after Shahid got himself an agent, and the agent tried to contact the Stampers. The Stampers at this point stopped all contact – something which Shahid has ever since regretted. A huge shame!
What is not known is if the conversion was offered to anyone else after that point, or if it just faded away due to not being able to find someone else up for the job. I guess we may learn in time!
What is interesting though is that there are currently 2 unofficial conversions in the works which you can learn more about here:
At somepoint or another, we will get to see a conversion of the game it seems – which is great news!
