Here's a book for those who L♡VE learning about the history of gaming and home computers like we do.

 

Games writer Dan Whitehead has published a C☆☆L book called Speccy Nation: A Tribute to the Golden Age of British Gaming. 


It covers the beautiful and almighty  ZX Spectrum home computer. 


Dan Whitehead takes a good look at 50 of the best and obscure ZX Spectrum games that contributed to the DNA of 'The Speccy' through the golden age of UK home gaming and bedroom coders.

The Speccy ended up with a software library of over 24,000 titles!
The Speccy was ahead of its time with a wide range of software that included programming tools, word processors, spreadsheet programs, drawing and art programs, It was the workhorse all rounder personal computer of its time.
Such is the love of the Speccy to this day, the creation of new Spectrum titles by devoted fans continues!
The game devs of the Speccy era are the stars of their day who worked with resources that were extremely limited by modern game devs standards. 
The first Speccy released in 1982 were available in two models, one with 16 Kilobytes of RAM!!
Then came the next advanced model which meant you had access to an eye watering 48 kB of RAM!!
If you want to see how the Speccy changed the face of home computers for a nation and a generation then we suggest you grab a copy pronto.

Let us know how you got on with Speccy Nation, was it a good read?

We'd Love to know your fave Gaming or Computing related reads so as we can feature your faves in future Games Freezer articles!

The Games Freezer Team Love To Search The Web For The Finest Game Art Around and Post It Onto Our COOL Pinterest Page

So we thought in order to showcase the finest picks of the Game Art we have found on our travels we should officially open

"THE GAMESFREEZER GAME ART GALLERY"

So in a series of showcases over the next few months we will attempt to show off some of finest exponents of Game Art on the web that we have been able to find.

So without further ado please let us introduce to you............a Friend Of The Freezer....

Calum Bennett...... +Calum Bennett @CalumBennett_


Calum has created some epic Game Art with a twist.......All of the Game Art featured here by Calum is inspired by some of the most awesome Video Games Quotes from over the years.

We love this idea and were really impressed by the simplicity of the idea and the excellent style in which it has been executed.

Before we take a look at Calum's Gallery lets hear a little bit about what inspired his Game Art and some words about the man himself....

"I care about gaming a lot and wanted to show it off.

I chose the most predominant quotes from some of my favourite games, that happen to span nearly 25 years.

I wanted to show that no matter the age of the game, the best games still have a classic, memorable moment.

I'm 23, UK I've been a gamer since before I could walk, and still game today."

GAME ART GALLERY #1

Bioshock

Mortal Kombat

Portal

Zelda


Our Favourite is the Zelda Art, what's yours - Let Us Know!

Have you worked out where in each game these quotes appear and maybe who says them?

What future Game Art would you like to see in The Freezer?
