One other month on the calendar, one other interview with a sport developer a few traditional masterpiece they helped create. This time round, I spoke to Mike Day by day, one of many designers of DMA Designs’ Lemmings. In case you are over the age of 30, you’ve got virtually undoubtedly performed Lemmings; the sport was just about utterly inescapable for a number of years, receiving sequels and remakes on each platform possible.

Lemmings was a phenomenon, and Mike Day by day shares some ideas on its origins and inspiration—after the Retronauts East crew (Ben, Benj, and Chris) helps set the stage by explaining the premise and attraction of the franchise, after all.
Please observe: We don’t condone inflicting tiny senseless mammals to blow up in a nuclear cloud.
