With only 5 days to go, everybody is preparing their flights to Almelo..
To give you something to read while on your way I compiled a Sensible library, containing the best articles about our favorite game..

The article I love most is my Amiga Power’s c-monster, also known als Rockpapershotgun’s Kieron Gillen: How Sensi taught him to appreciate football.
If you want to learn about how the game was made you can read RetroGamer’s making of published on Nowgamer by Craig Grannell, or you can read the making of Sensible Soccer chapter of Gary Penn’s Sensible Software book published by ROM. I’ll bring a copy of that book with me to Almelo.
I always love to read reviews from back in the day, especially Amiga Power’s (see photo). Stuart Campbell (Worked for Sensi on Cannon Fodder 2) gave Sensible Soccer 93% in June 1992 and the updated version 94% in January 1993. I can still remember i ate poffertjes (small dutch pancakes) with my father when i got that issue). Stuart wrote and interesting story about his relation with Kickoff too.
Jonathan Davies wrote the review to Sensible World of Soccer. This was partly done on unfinished code, for which they later wrote an apology of sorts. The 95/96 edition fortunately corrected all bugs. On the Amiga magazine rack site i refers too, you’ll find lots more scans from the nineties about sensi.
