As it was just a bit of fun I wanted to release it for free - unfortunately amazon don't make that easy, so if anyone wants to do me a favour and let amazon know it's available cheaper elsewhere, that would be appreciated. All the links are here. For the time being, amazon price is set at 99c, which is of course appreciated but feel free to avail yourself of a free version if you wish.
Matthew Smith is a largely unremarkable computer programmer from Surbiton, who just happens to have landed a rather lucrative contract for his latest game, Bootlesquith Manor.
To celebrate his good fortune, he pops down to Frank’s Outdoor to get a few tinnies, and share the news with his good pal Frank – whereupon the off licence is robbed and Matthew knocked out.
Or so it seems - until he and Frank find themselves in a wholly more colourful version of Surbiton, watched over by the ominous looking house on the hill – Bootlesquith Manor itself.
The Ballad of Matthew Smith follows their strange odyssey through the fictional house and their attempt to return home for a well-earned beer.
Obligatory Content Warning:
Contains some mild swearing and a lot of British humour.
And for the benefit of anyone who played British computer games in the 1980s: yes, that Matthew Smith.
