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.
