29 Jul

Grand master of psychedelic video games Jeff Minter has updated the 1980s arcade classic Tempest once again (after Tempest 2000, Tempest 3000 and TxK)!

We have posted about Jeff Minter’s Polybius (named after an urban myth) before; but now a custom build of the game is featured in the video to the new Nine Inch Nails song “LESS THAN”.

Enjoy your sensual overload!

“Space is Everything” — TxK by Jeff Minter (llamesoft)

21 Dec

Jeff Minter has been designing video games since the early days of the medium. And since the very beginning an air of anarchy and trippyness has been a constant in his creations. Since Tempest 2000 he has been refining what I’d like to call the psychedelic “space” shooter (look here for Space Giraffe).

But he has released a game/ “light synthesizer” that is actually called Psychedelia as early as 1984.

Check out the man’s work! You won’t be disappointed.
