Spectrum fans might well remember Fairlight and Fairlight II, from Swedish coder Bo Jangeborg. These isometric adventure games were both highly regarded by fans of Sir Clive’s finest, with the original receiving a whopping 95% from Crash, and Computer & Video Games describing it as possessing “a level of detail and precision which surpasses anything seen on a Spectrum before.”
YouTube channel Gears Of Games has recently tracked down Bo Jangeborg for a major interview, which you can see above. It’s well worth a look – the interview is conducted entirely in English and goes into a great deal of depth, with the video running for 54 minutes. The production values are high, and Bo does the vast majority of the talking, covering everything from his start in programming to the various technical tricks used in Fairlight. If you’re a fan of the games, this is essential viewing.
