Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Mel Croucher is a British writer and video games pioneer. Originally an architect, he moved into computers and set up Automata UK after the release of the Sinclair ZX81. This label published several games for the early home computer market, including three Computer Trade Association award-winners: Pimania, Groucho, and the groundbreaking "multi-media" title Deus Ex Machina. He has also written text books, computer manuals and comedy, and worked as a journalist, writing regular columns like Without Prejudice, The Rubber Room, and a sci-fi humorous serial called Tamara Knight for the ZX Spectrum magazine CRASH in the 1980s, as well as columns for various computer magazines since.show more
