Matthew Smith, famed designer of Manic Miner and Jet Set Willy, is back in the business after an almost uninterrupted three decade vacation. PCGamesN reports Smith is working with Elite Systems to produce a new game. Elite, which like Smith has been in the games business since the mid-80’s, has been re-releasing many of the designers ZX Spectrum classics on mobile in recent years, so we can probably expect something similar.
