The WordPress community

The latest version of this site has been crafted using WordPress, and there are far too many users and developers of WordPress to thank for the wonderful plugins and advice that they offer users around the world. Thank you one and all! 🙂

… and last, but in no way least, thanks to my wife Siobhan for being so patient whilst I work on this website!

Helping out

If you think you can contribute information or images to the Bird Sanctuary, please get in contact. I am particularly interested in people who still own original boxed copies of TelecomSoft games, as there is barcode information on the packaging that might prove to be very useful to the site.

I’m also always looking for developers who worked on the games we published, so why not get in contact and help tell the story behind the game?

The Wanted section details specific items or images that are currently sought after for the Bird Sanctuary.
