A nice memoir from the in-staff Psygnosis writer who created the WipeOut Universe. Expect my own memoir of playing WipeOut when Popular gets to the Prodigy’s “Firestarter” (NB I was rubbish at it but I loved it anyway).

“That’s back-stories for you. For the most part they’re like radio waves – always there but undetected. And as mostly happens, when the game stumbles, or flops entirely, the back-story’s faint ripples ebb further and further and further away, and no one tunes in, and no one cares to listen, and no one wonders how a particular forgotten universe ever came to be.”
