He was 16 years old when he made the graphics

3D graphics (movie) : John Allardice

Music : Allister Brimble

Voices : Lynette Reade (Allister Brimble's very own mother )

Misc :

Thanks. Two questions:

- Is this valid for both versions of the game : floppy disk version and CD32 version?

- What is the source please? If it is in-game credits, screenshots or a save state (if you played through Winuae would be nice)(unless they are accessible in the menu screen, I don't remember I must say).

You also mention a Gen4 article. I don't think it is the source of your info (just about Senghore being 16 at the time) but if possible a scan would be nice (or if you can point me to some online "archives" of French video games magazines).


PS: it is magaZine, in English but in French as well. Only people from Québec have the right to create new words that don't exist either in French or English

Answer 1 : it's valid for CD32 and floppy releases.

Answer 2 : 1st source is the game manual, which is the same for both releases.

My source is french magazine Generation 4 number 73, page 124-127, where alien breed tower assault is tested on 4 pages, and it's there that they say That the graphist, Tony Senghore is 16 years old (he did an awesome job, considering his age )

If you have any other requirement, tell me

PS : i forgot one thing : game is distributed by Ocean Software Ltd

Thank you very much for the details about the magazine . I managed to find a scanned version of it ("Pour une poignée d'Aliens").

I'll read that thoroughly and the manual (this week-end I hope) and will update HOL accordingly and/or ask more questions if needed.


I especially asked the references because you mentioned details such as the age of Senghore or the fact that the voice is Brimble's mother.

It won't be needed for the credits, but I think it will be nice for game notes and as a consequence those need to be sourced the best way possible

Brimble's mother source : Facebook, she had an accident, and allister posted about her.

Sadly allister posted on 10th of july, she has passed

EDIT : Allister Brimble
Hi all, we had the unfortunate news today that my Mum will not make it. Lynette Reade was the voice behind Alien Breed and is also featured in my new album. Her talent was astounding having won actress of the year at Central School of Speech and Drama. She was an amazing cook, writer (having almost finished a book on our family tree), gardener and lover of all animals & birds, which she died trying to save. She gave blood for the most part of her life in order to save others. The last thing I said to her was that it was now time to go off and see her Mum & Dad again, at which point the fire alarm went off.. a fire had started on the next floor! I like to think it was my Mum whooshing off into heaven with a trail of flames left behind!

Thanks.

Do you know why he is sometimes referred to as Senghore and sometimes Senghore-Turunen?

Something similar to the Spanish who get both mother and father family name but only use one of them most of the time (from what I know)?

Or was Turunen his nickname (in the scene or whatever)?

Ok, thank you. I guess it happened it during his career which would explain why he sometimes has the two names and sometimes only one.

Currently HOL lists him as Senghore. I think I will leave it that way and add a note in his artist entry to explain why sometimes he has two names.

He was 16 years old when ATBA was released, so he couldn't be married
