Goodbye, and Thank You
Posted in Dream17 by Squirminator2k at 16/01/09 12:46am CET

It is with some sadness that I announce that, from today, I'm no longer the Man In Charge of Dream17. Between writing Jump Leads and trying to forge a career as a writer and actor, I don't have the time I'd like to devote to the site anymore.

I started work on the site back in 2003. There were a ton of Worms fansites, but only one or two fansites covering Team17's other titles. I decided not only to develop a one-stop site where people could find out about all of Team17's games past and present, and when I shared this idea with some of the Team17 Forum community they encouraged me not only to set up the site, but to try and seek permission from Team17 to put up their older Amiga titles for download. I was surprised and pleased when Martyn Brown, Team17's Creative Director, gave me the go-ahead.

Both the Team17 Forum and Amiga communities have been incredibly supportive of the site. There are a ton of people I owe thanks to, and I'll forgo listing them because I know I'll only end up leaving people out.

The site isn't going anywhere, however. I'm leaving the site in the very capable hands of Bonz, who has promised to look after her, and feed and bathe her every day, and not give her any treats after 6pm because otherwise she gets a tummy ache. There are very few people I'd trust this site with, and Bonz is at the front of that list. I'm sure he'll do a great job.

Thank you very much for your support over the past five years.
