My father was a hardware engineer and when I was 5, he made one [a computer] from raw microchip, it also has a custom box.
It was a cassete tape, when i first time run death chase, it also has lot of beeping while its loaded, and image on screen was generated row per row.
From a technical viewpoint, the game was great, because it's try to make a real 3d feeling, and using only 8 colors, they do all best.
there is two reason why i start make it:
first: I start remake it in 2008, at this time there is nobody even trying to make some 'endless runners', and i think, it was a great idea make something 'endless' .
second: i have a small child and i also have a zx emulator on my phones, and surely i have deathchase rom for it. one time i saw my child playing it, and i think - i also was young when i first saw deathchase, and now my child also saw that, and he love it, but now that game can be much better ( visually ) than before.
After few weeks of development, i wanted to make great story line, and that where problems starts. I underestimate all work, all voice actors i need, artists, etc. so, after one year, i saw that some guys released 'Dead Runner' - it has almost same concept, as deathchase, except, it dont have enemies, dont have levels, but you should run over forest. So i decide - if i will wait more, i never release it, so, we cut off all cutcenes, helicopters, comics scenes, and make 'something simple endless'. "
