ROUGOL logo Welcome to
RISC OS User Group Of London



ROUGOL is a not-for-profit organisation consisting of Acorn/RISC OS computer users in London and the south-east. Our aim is to bring those users together. There is no membership fee and entry to all meetings is free. To find out more, email us.


Meetings are held on the third Monday of every month. Most meetings feature a guest speaker, demonstrating the latest hardware or software, giving tutorials of software both new and old, or simply to kick off discussions on the current hot topic. Entrance is free, so why not come along and say hello?

Next meeting - Monday 15th July 2024 
Visions of the Impossible - Nathan Atkinson

Visions of the Impossible were a group of programmers that produced various games, demos and utilities for RISC OS in the 90s, with their most well known releases being Sunburst and Super Foul Egg

VotI team leader Nathan Atkinson is joining us to talk about their history and tell us some behind the scenes stories. This will include details of how they came to port The Bitmap Brothers classic Chaos Engine to RISC OS, and also ported back the 3DO console version of Starfighter 3000.

There will also be a look at some of the products that didn't quite make it, such as Simisu San and racer Eat my Dust, the final unfinished game before VotI closed down in 2002. Plus there will be info about the project they were working on with Acorn, provisionally titled DeathRacer 4000, before it all fell apart :-(
