Vintage Computer Festival in California

Post by zxbruno »

Went to Southern California’s Vintage Computer festival last Sunday. I was hoping to see a few TS2068s but there were none. I saw a ZX81 with ZX-Pand interface, a Harlequin, a ZX80, and the Sinclair MK14 up and running with display and tape interface.

Amiga, C64, Macintosh, old PCs with Sound Blaster or Adlib, MSX, gaming consoles with Atari being the most present... there was a bit of everything and a bunch of stuff I didn't recognize. They had one hall for lectures and another for the tables with the displays. I played Kokotoni Wilf for a few minutes on a rubber keys connected to a Sony Trinitron TV.

I'm probably going to kick myself, but what's the game playing on that Speccy?

Same! It's got the air of an educational game perhaps?

I immediately thought of Perils of Bear George, but I don't think it is.

Someone on FB said The Birds and The Bees. I don’t know why I typed Kokotoni Wilf. :D
