Insπred: The Collective Works of Mel Croucher arrives on Indiegogo

6 April 2017 8:36 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

The genius that is Mel Croucher has been dubbed as the “father of the UK gaming industry” and he has been creating titles since the glory days of the Sinclair ZX80.  Quite possibly his most well known game is Deus Ex Machina released in 1984 which appeared on the Zx Spectrum, this featured the vocal talents of Ian Dury, Jon Pertwee, Donna Bailey and Frankie Howerd.  This game took players on a bizarre path through the “Seven Ages of Man” and it recently saw a re-release – on Steam – for its 30th Anniversary.

One thing that has been a constant throughout Mel’s career is, where possible, music has followed.  Take Deus Ex Machina from 1984, in-truth this game – or piece of art – wasn’t everybody’s “cup of tea” yet if you ask anyone about the accompanying spoken and musical piece that ran in conjunction with the game, people sing its praises. »
