A feature documentary on the classic videogame Lemmings is being made available to watch free of charge: more details here.

Vidoegamers of a certain vintage might just remember the release of the much-loved headscratcher Lemmings on the Atari ST and Commodore Amiga computers. The game came to life at the Dundee-based DMA Design (who would go on to create a little known game called Grand Theft Auto), and it was released in early 1991 to rave reviews and huge sales.

Now, a new feature documentary has told the story of Lemmings, and the people who made it. Entitled Lemmings: Can You Dig It?, the film speaks to many of the people behind the success of the game, including (definitely not copy and pasted this bit from the press release)…

Adrian Powell (original Lemmings cover artist), Alyson Conway (sculpture artist), Brian ‘Biscuit’ Watson, (ex-DMA), Chris Scullion (journalist), Chris van der Kuyl (developer & Kingsway Club alumni), Eli Mouawad (streamer), Enrique Hervas (Lead Designer at Exient), Gary Penn (ex-DMA & journalist), Gary Timmons (ex-DMA), Gary Whitta (screen writer & journalist), Ian Hetherington (ex-Psygnosis), Jake Montanarini (Norwich University), James Roadley-Battin (Art Director at Exient), Kish Hirani (BAME In Games, ex-PlayStation), Larry Bundy Jr (TV presenter, YouTuber), Mike Dailly (ex-DMA), Nia Wearn (Deep Silver), Nick Gorse (Coventry University), Paul Farley (ex-DMA), Peter Molyneux (games industry legend), Robin Gray (Gayming Magazine), Russell Kay (ex-DMA), Ryan Locke (Abertay University), Silvio Micalef (Lead Artist at Exient), Steve Hammond (ex-DMA), Tim Wright (ex-DMA), Trista Bytes (superfan, YouTuber) and more.

You’ll be able to watch the movie free of charge on YouTube from today (it goes live at 12pm). And it’ll appear below these very words…
