Creator of ‘Chariot Race’ passes away


It is with very sad regret that Paul Hope, creator of the excellent Chariot Race game on the Vic 20, has passed away peacefully after a long term illness.

Only recently did we find out a little more about the game and its creator when Paul’s son, Toby Hope, got in touch via the Denial forums.  Paul Drury has just written an article on the game, which is shortly to be published in Retro Gamer magazine.  Paul Drury kindly had passed on an early copy of the article to the Hope family which was read to Paul to show how much everyone appreciated his work.

Many thanks for the great gaming memories Paul, you will be missed!
