The Bitmap Brothers were UK gaming’s first Rockstars. They appeared in our computer magazines looking more suited to the cover of NME rather than the bedroom coders we’d become accustomed to. Their video games had a look and style all of their own that when combined with their cutting edge dance music collaborations and savvy marketing created not only a loyal following among gamers but also influenced future generations of game makers. In this episode we focus on their 16-bit era and the games which dominated not only our gaming memories but also the charts and award ceremonies of the time. We couldn’t let such legendary game makers go by without marking the occasion as best we could. So, the Drisk has been at it again created another huge 222 page companion book which goes into even deeper detail about the games, stories and images around the Bitmap Brothers’ canon. You can download the book for free from castaway.media/retroasylum
This episode of Bytesize has a real pick and mix flavour about it. In summary just think of a mash-up of Dizzy driving a Ferrari down the freeway being chased by zombie dogs full to the brim with t-Virus. In more detail this means we have Paul Davies talking on the Oliver Twins’ Kickstarter book launch, the Drisk gets into his favourite game of all time Out Run and James Kent talks spooky goings on in his gaming past. Sound good? Of course it does. So sit down and get comfy as we blast this pod squarely in your face.
