This Game Where

Ep.9 - Lemmings (Acorn Archimedes)

February 6, 2020

Happy February, everyone! To celebrate the leap year and the subsequent extra day we're gifted this month, we figured we'd give you exactly the same number of episodes as every other normal month, and this is the first of them. Don't complain, you've already got an extra day!

This week we take a look at Lemmings, a game scientifically proven to have cropped up in the life of every child born between 1984 and 1999 because it was made for every machine through the nineties you can think of.
Did you have a Megadrive? You got Lemmings.
SNES? You got Lemmings.
Walkman? Lemmings on tape.
Phillips CD-i? Yes, even you got Lemmings!
Chris opted to play the game on an Acorn Archimedes personal computer, itself pilfered from work by by his Pop.

But, as always, that's not all! Over the course of the show we touch upon novelty dancing, copyright trolling, and the problem with passwords. We suspect that will have you salivating for the show, so grab your favourite podcast app and get listening!
