Bigwiz the wizard has left the castle in a hurry, in order to turn the King’s son Newton back into a frog.
Indeed, he was in such a hurry that he forgot to pack his spare wand, forgot to lock his laboratory door, and most importantly, forgot to return his utterly stupid, idiotic, incompetent, brain-dead nephew Slightly to his parents’ mud hut in the hills.
Oh well, it could be worse. A sunburnt dragon could be running off with the beautiful Princess Croak as we speak. The wizard’s spell cabinet might have been knocked over by a Flaming Octarian Whirlwind, scattering the spells everywhere. His kingliness the King might, in a fit of blind panic, have given Slightly the wizard’s private spell book to read. It might rain.
You see, it could be worse. But as it is, there’s not a cloud in the sky, a breeze in the air, or a whiff of dragon’s breath to be sniffed.
Hang on, where’s that pink fire-breathing creature going with that screaming princess? Is that a gentle wind wafting in through the door, or is it something stronger?
Oh no. Get the washing in mother, and lock all doors. Cancel the papers, and shoot the cow. I think it’s going to be one of those days…

Slightly Magic 8bit Legacy Edition on PC, Mac & Linux with director’s commentary & extras!

The Party’s Just Begun!

Slightly Magic is 25 years old and we feel like celebrating! We’ve got a magic beanfest of brilliant things to announce starting with ‘The Making of Slightly Magic’, a full-colour art book available on Amazon now. Featuring the artwork of Chris Graham, and written by Slightly’s creator Colin Jones, this book should be a fascinating read for anyone with an interest in gaming.

Next, from 30th Sept is a brand-new Pebble watch face, sourced from the original Spectrum graphics.
