A steampunk Spiderdevice and a rude awakening.
LEAF is a game for the Acorn Archimedes which I started in 98, returned to and finished in 2003, never actually released, but displayed at galleries until my A3010 disk drive got tired of touring. After this it sat mouldering in a cupboard until I brought the disks to the Risc Os London Show 2018 and Rob Coleman kindly restored it. You can now download it and run it in an Archimedes emulator. I’ll be looking into releasing physical copies for collectors and a version for those running Risc OS on Raspberry PI’s shortly.
I’m particularly keen to see if anyone actually starts making levels with it, but I guess that’s optimistic.
GETTING THE EMULATOR WORKING
The emulator that I’ve been using is Arculator – download from here
When you unzip and run it, you get a message about missing roms. You can download them from here
I chose riscos3_10.zip , but the other versions may well work as well.
You next put the contents of that zip in the appropriate folder of the ROMS folder. I chose RiskOs3.1 so I put it in the RISCOS3 folder.
You next have to tell Arculator you’re running RiskOs3
Leaf was created on an A3010 which has this CPU type:
Interactive music video. Find your way through this mechanical moving maze.
Guide to running effective groups based on John Adair’s Three Circles.
Animated music video for Italian post-punk band Viclarsen, featuring wires, living sparks and glitches.
Broken Commercials deformed proto-adverts found scavenging for publicity in the ventilation system of the marketing agency in which they was conceived. Broken Commercials often contain themes of self-mutilation.
Here are three.
