Episode #157 - Tribute to Psygnosis, Part 1: The Amiga years
On August, the 22nd of 2012, the SHADOW OF THE BEAST (Sony) fell over Sony Studio Liverpool, better known as Psygnosis. After producing AWESOME games for 28 years the MENACE couldn't be stopped. Game over for a company who wrote a big chapter into the book of history of computer and video games. BitFellas says "thank you" for creating and publishing milestones like Lemmings, Barbarian, the Beast trilogy, WipEout and many more gems, including some of the best box art of all time.

Episode #158 - Tribute to Psygnosis, Part 2: Racing on top of the PSone
Hello and welcome to part 2 of our journey through the beautiful sound universe of Psygnosis games. We're moving on and crossing the timeline when the boys and girls from Liverpool switched from Amiga to console gaming, especially the PlayStation. For example, they created WipEout, the first new media sensation which made video games interesting to a broader audience.

This episode includes tunes from games which brought Psygnosis fame after their Amiga era has ended and before they lost their name to become Sony Studio Liverpool.

Information about the unreleased music included here:
Assault Rigs 2: "I did write some music for the sequel but the game eventually was dropped." (Stuart Duffield)

Damij - Shoki: "The track 'Shoki' was from a 3D fighting game called 'Damij' (it was almost completed, but was dropped and ended up not being released). The track has some background noise - it was recorded using 8-track tape and hasn't been remastered at all." (Stuart Duffield)

Drakan: "Here are some unused tunes from Drakan and Drakan 2 which I got kicked off a few months into it..." (Barry Leitch)

BitFellas - there's some owlsome music in the air.

Episode #161 - Giana Sisters Tribute
Even little girls are getting old one day. Once upon a time, in 1987 to be precise, we played around with two cute girls on C64 and Amiga: The Great Giana Sisters. A great jump 'n run game in the style of Mario, featuring fantastic music by sound magician Chris Hülsbeck. Now, 25 years later, a new game with the twin girls has been released. After a successful Kickstarter campaign Giana Sisters: Twisted Dreams was brought to life by Black Forest Games. With music by Chris Hülsbeck himself, Fabian del Priore and the metal guys from Machinae Supremacy plus awesome graphics where you can switch fluently between the beautiful landscapes and dark places this download title captured our hearts by storm.

Now we want to celebrate the 25th birthday of the Giana Sisters together with the creators and you! The BitJam podcast episode #161 features not only the original Giana theme, but also music from the DS version of the game, which was released in 2009, the brand new Twisted Dreams game as well as some cool remixes.
