Developer Biography

Mike Singleton (1951 – October 10, 2012) was a British author and game developer. He started inventing games as a youngster. While working as an English teacher on Merseyside he produced a computer game called Star Lord (Commodore PET/CBM) and went on to write various well-regarded titles for the ZX Spectrum during the 1980s. He died in Switzerland on Wednesday 10th October, 2012. He had been suffering from cancer.

Mike's first game was Computer Race. It was placed in a betting shop, where customers could bet money and then view a randomized race play out on a Commodore PET and earn real money rewards. Singleton is best known for creating the two games in the Midnight series, Lords of Midnight and Doomdark's Revenge, which featured thousands of locations and over 100 playable characters which made them some of the largest games of their era. A third game was planned to complete the trilogy, Eye of the Moon, but this was never released.
