Lemmings 30th anniversary!

Happy 30th anniversary to a true Amiga classic Lemmings! You can play a dhtml version here on pretty much anything https://www.elizium.nu/scripts/lemmings/ plus if I’m ever in Dundee will have to check out these statues https://www.atlasobscura.com/places/lemmings-statue

Still one of the most original games I’ve ever seen.

A quintessential Amiga game from the golden era of innovation. Its creator, David Jones from DMA Design, also made GTA. Makes for a nice CV, I guess.

I loved this game back then, but was never actually any good at it and haven't played it since (with the exception of the 3D thingy.) Guess this anniversary is a good excuse to try again.

No sound for me either - plays impressively well apart from that though

Wow, I've been to Dundee but never knew about these.

My ex-girlfriend's Dad has an apartment on the outskirts of Glen Eagles golf course.

Speaking of Lemmings statues/paraphernalia, my copy of Lemmings 2 came with a brochure advertising pins for each of the 12 tribes in the game. Unfortunately I lost the brochure long ago. Does anyone remember this? Or have any of the pins?

One more reason to visit Scotland. I even own Lemmings for the C64. Boy, I was proud to own that. But I was never good either.

I still own the ZX Spectrum version of this, a very enjoyable game even on 8 bits systems.
