I came across a seemingly obscure RPG titled Deepdelve designed by Cint Bigglestone and put out by The Fantasy Factory in 1980. It is type written 11 pages in a module sized book along with about 20 loose pages of handouts, maps, and various related papers.

Does anyone have any info on this title/system and if it has any value?

I did a search on ebay for it (current and completed), on Acaeum, the Acaeum forum, and via Google online and all came up with nothing.

Have a look at http://www.afterglow2.com/ they produced overland encounters with a scan of it there. They also produced Catapult Run as well in 1984 (ish).. which I think will be mentionedon Mathias's origional page as well from memory... that all I can think off off the top of my head

I did a bit of digging and was able to find a couple of references to it, although neither seem to mention anything you don't already know.

Some bare bones info, courtesy Google's cache:

There are lots of pages about Clint Bigglestone, but none of them (except the one on rpg-index.de) mention this game.

According to the site below, there were two different companies named Fantasy Factory.  The Canadian one did Catapult Run and the US one did Overland Encounters.

So are these just curiously obscure play aids and supplements or something more rare or unique?

prb obscure-ish play aids but pretty cool items nonetheless methinks?
