Lemmings documentary on the way

A new documentary will shine a light on the iconic video game Lemmings, which is celebrating its 30th birthday this year.

Originally developed by DMA Design in Dundee, it was first published for the Commodore Amiga by Liverpool-based Psygnosis in 1991 and has made its way to many other platforms since, including Sony’s PlayStation and, most recently, mobile.

The documentary – Lemmings 30th: Can You Dig It? – speaks to the people behind its original success, while also celebrating its legacy in gameplay. It will be released in Q4 2021 and has been commissioned by Lemmings mobile publisher, Exient.

“Exient has for over two decades developed and published computer/mobile games based on world leading IPs,” commented Julian Jones, chief publishing officer at Exient. “We commissioned the Lemmings 30th anniversary documentary to celebrate what is a true icon of Scottish and British video games culture. We’re very proud and excited that the film shares stories about how the original game was made and its ongoing cultural influence, from the memories and mouths of the people who made it.”
