New Hotel Underway...
AFTER a long wait Southport's
latest development is now underway between the existing
Southport Theatre and Floral Hall complex and the Marine
Parade bridge. The land is now being cleared to make way
for a new hotel and exhibition hall, with a casino.
Some in Southport are now asking
questions if this is a good more with several hotels now
under construction, now we have lost Pleasureland.
Email us your views to our
a few days off now to the start of an
international challenge to find
the next generation of retro style arcade game
programmers and you can come to the start of the
crusade! The crusade will be launched at the
FAB Cafe, Hope St, Liverpool on 21 February 2007 from
8:30pm to 11:00pm. The competition will run until
to 1 August 2007 and a short list announced on the 15
The competition is open to amateurs and
student game programmers only, so it will prove to be a
very big help to any programmer who wants to get more
than a foot into the highly competitive games industry!
The big announcement of the results on 25
August 2007 will swiftly be followed by the Winning Game
Launch Party on 3 October 2007!
The Voyager Crusade is being run for TV
personality and enthusiastic game collector Jonathan
Thompson. It is also being backed by 80's pop star Clint
Boon on the opening night and through out. But
also lending his support to the crusade, through out the
competition, will be Darth Vader him self... Dave
Prowse, who will be signing the wining game designers
cabinet! Sadly Dave will not be at the opening
night, but the night will have TV, local and national
radio as well as national and international newspapers!
If the event is successful we can now
reveal that it could lead to the building of a very
special museum. More will be announced as the
event goes on.
