The other week I wrote an article on certain klik games, and I thought it was pretty good, so I decided to send it off to GameCentral, a UK based teletext games magazine. If you haven't heard of Teletext then this won't be of interest to you. Anyway, my article was published. Channel 4: P306

I took the liberty of taking photos too:

And yes, I even managed to get away with plugging Mr Stump's Dentures - somewhat surprising really - but I know that both my site and Ectoprods has had more visits this weekend than we normally would

I used to read that. Now I can't even remember what his name was. How tragic.

I'd been on Teletext once before, when I sent in help for Simon 2 to Digitizer. Trouble is that my paragraph was too long and they had to mangle it to get it onto the page, meaning that my carefully crafted guide was largely gibberish.

Thanks again for the mention!

Edit: Turner! That was it.

I'm more amazed that people still use teletext, but oh well.

Come to think of it, my mother still checks the weather on it and the like, but she only stopped calling the remote control a "command module" a few years ago.

"Very well designed"
why thank you Mr Circy.

I'm suprised you included Buzz 2 since it didn't even win any of the two GOTW it was entered into.
If only I read the teletext nowadays I would have seen that.

Anyway well done for getting it published.

No Sam? *whimpers*

Teletext! Last time I saw that was in 1997 when a bunch of us had a go on Bamboozle. Is that on digital teletext?

Yah Bamboozle is still around, I forget the page number though. I was hoping to make this a series of articles but its not fair to dominate the user submitted articles when others deserve their turn. In a few weeks... maybe I'll submit another one - with Satan Sam on it

By the way AndyUK... the article is still there

Channel 4.
Page 306

It'll be gone by Monday though.

billybobjoe and everyone else outside Europe: Teletext is an ancient news/information service that's broadcast via the television. By now it's probably run exclusively by a BBC Micro somewhere in Broadcasting House's attic.

I'd liked to have seen some Teletext style screenshots of the games.
