The name of Mike Singleton was little known in the industry prior to the release of LOM. After dabbling with a Commodore Pet in the early 1980s, he moved onto the ZX81 and wrote Games Pack 1, released by Sinclair as one of the first commercial programs for the computer. Around this time he was also involved in play-by-mail gaming and it was this interest that put him in touch with Computer & Video Games magazine, who wanted him to start a PBM game for them. When C&VG decided to set up a software company called Beyond, it was Singleton they turned to again. The game he eventually came up with was Lords of Midnight, and it changed the face of adventuring forever. Forget about poking around some text-only dungeon, here you could view the world through the most sumptuous graphics yet seen, and explore a total of 3904 locations. You were able to look in any of eight compass directions, giving a total of 31,232 views of the beautifully drawn Land of Midnight. The game is far from being solely about visuals though. It is an absorbing and compelling adventure, placing you in control of multiple characters on a quest to defeat the evil witchking, Doomdark. Lords of Midnight was undoubtedly the first 'epic' game to be released on the Spectrum.
