A month back Retro Computers Limited (RCL) revealed via their Indiegogo page an upcoming nationwide competition to find coders young and old to create games for their up and coming ZX Spectrum Vega+. However, just announced this evening via Facebook is the rather upsetting news that this competition has now been postponed due to what RCL reports as “…an extraordinary amount of bullying”.
The full statement can be read below, but it seems RCL didn’t want anyone else being caught up in this and they’ve set the competition back to September 21st.
We have taken the difficult decision today to postpone the announcement and full details of the game coding competition until 21st September 2016
The reason for this is that there has been an extraordinary amount of bullying both on and offline including misinformation directed at and about members of the Retro team and our supporters, and we do not want anyone else targeted in the same way.
If you are looking for updates re progress of the Vega+, please make sure that you check with our official Facebook page and or our Indiegogo page. You can also make contact via our website retrocomputerslimited.com
Albeit there is a minor mention of the ZX Vega+ in the article and where to find any future updates, we still have no final look at the finished product, which is due for release at the end of September; here’s hoping these background issues aren’t causing major problems in production.
