Alien breed tower assault CD32 intro

I wonder who did this intro ?
it must have been very expensive to do it in 1994, just for a lame game because this game really is very lame compared with its intro quality


Id say technically is the best Amiga game intro
even this game have an outro also very long

The strange thing about this intro is that there are several actors
who are these actors? team 17 coders?
or
this intro this was taken from some film ?

I want info about this please

What i remember is that Team 17 used Lightwave 4 and an Alpha powered render station (forgot the name, but was running NT 4 for Alpha) linked in screamernet to create the intro and also a Draco station to edit the video and overlay actors but about the last part am not sure.

I think calling the people in this intro actors is a push. Its awful

As far as I remember in early plans for Tower Assault Team17 was going to make intro fully rendered, no live actors. There were few shoots from that intro in different press previews, even there is picture from that intro on back of box.

No need to ask the authors, they already gave the answer:

“We shot the intro in the Team17 building! Our office at the time was on Garden Street in Wakefield. It was a decent sized space, and was used for warehousing, with the offices around the sides and above. We just cleared a space and used the central area.” And the actors? All Team17 staff! “I’m in it, almost everyone was. Lets face it, with Team17’s distributed development teams, and before the success of Worms, there were not that many of us at HQ. So if you were standing around the office, someone would thrust a helmet at you, and you would be thrown into a scene! The final result is both astonishing and embarrassing, like Babylon 5 starring the cast of Emmerdale!”

The render station was a Raptor IIRC.
