Thanks to contributor Chris Hester, who flagged up an old piece that he wrote possibly for his magazine Adventure Coder. Sorderon’s Shadow: The Legend of Elindor was a title by Nick Eatock and Simon Welland that was a sort of mix of Valhalla and Lords of Midnight. Denton contributed some character graphics to improve the game briefly, but that was it.

The game consisted of text input, a vocab of 750 words, interactive wandering characters and landscaping graphics. It saw release on the ZX Spectrum, and was due for release later on for the C64.

It was never to be though and the game was never to surface. The question is, was anything actually ever started on a C64 conversion? It seems that the game may well have got caught up when Beyond was sold to BT.

More soon we hope!

  1. The original game was written for the ZX Spectrum by Nick Eatock and Simon Welland. Denton contributed some character graphics to improve the game, but that was the extent of their involvement. Beyond was sold to BT soon after the game was published on the Spectrum in 1985.
