So. You know. Here we all are then with this Digitiser 2000 blog, which seems to be going down like a miniature horse at a Brony-fest. It's genuinely, and sincerely, touching.
Some time back we had a vague, half-lubed, notion of doing something new with the Digitiser characters and name. Basically, we still remember writing Digi with an almost lewd level of fondness, and enjoyed it too much to contemplate never doing a thing with it again. Like a stubborn crab, it has been quite difficult to shake off.
Alas, due to the awful reality of having day jobs, we can't really justify doing - let's say - some sort of ridiculous Digitiser Annual, or whatever, unless we know there is still a big enough audience out there to raise a couple of quid through something like Kickstarter. Whatever that is.
We dunno. We don't expect to return after all this time, and have people laying down palm fronds in our path. We're all too aware that it's a big ask - trying to stoke interest in a 21 year-old video games magazine, which finished over 10 years ago, and appeared on a now defunct medium. Plus, this sort-of-return is still in its infancy. We're not about to start "shilling" our wares, only to suffer the ghastly public humiliation of nobody being interested. At least, not yet. If ever. We'll see.
Leave a comment or let us know via the contact page if it's something you'd be interested in. If not a book - then what? It could be good. It could be smooth. And for the foreseeable future, please rest assured that brand new stuff is going keep appearing here.
Anyhow. Enough of this tentative, undignified, fishing. In the unlikely event that some of you have failed to notice it, there's a very lovely archive of Digitiser pages here: here. Regrettably, there are big chunks missing, but the presence of our favourite ever Pant-Oh - David Belt & The 7 Dwarves - almost makes up for that.
Also: fake adverts (which are all labelled "Not a real advert" as our editors were worried that people might actually go out and attempt to buy a Roaming Thomas). Here be three of them:
