Slightly Magic 8bit Legacy Edition

Help preserve and remaster this classic 8-bit video game for today’s and for future generations and support the Slightly Magic Kickstarter project!

Slightly Magic is a classic 8-bit and 16-bit computer game released in the early 1990s, written and programmed by by Colin Jones. The game received 89% in Sinclair User Magazine, 94% in Your Sinclair Magazine, and was voted one of the top 100 games of all time by readers of Your Sinclair.

If the campaign is successfully funded, the aim is to bring Slightly back to life, by producing an 8-bit Legacy Edition of Slightly Magic, featuring the original artwork and gameplay, but resolving some of the original platform limitations such as the colour clash for example. It will also feature a remastered soundtrack by original composer Allister Brimble.


With a £75 pledge, you too can have your own named room in the castle with a with a low-res portrait (to match the game style) on the wall. Your room name can be up to 22 characters, including any spaces and punctuation. You’ll be able to enter a code in a special screen, then when you play the game you’ll see your own special screen. The codes will work on all desktop versions of the game, so you’ll be able to give your code to anyone with a copy of the game and they’ll be able to enter your unique room too! 


PC/Mac/Linux desktop versions are planned, together with OUYA games console, followed by iOS and Android tablet and phone editions.

View the Kickstarter here and please support and spread the news to help bring Slightly back!!!
