DMA Design (1990)

Early demo and graphics exist (35%)

Long before Grand Theft Auto, DMA produced two games called Menace and Blood Money. Now the company was working on a horizontal beat-em-up called Gore.

Gore was intended to be a technical tour de force and this is perhaps why it was unfinished. Its notable that shortly afterwards DMA created Lemmings, a game which relied less on pushing the Amiga to the limits and more on excellent gameplay and new ideas.

Dave Jones and Tony Smith collaborated on Gore. Tony created the superbly distinctive graphics of Menace and Blood Money and answers our questions on his unfinished work.

Many thanks go to Mike Dailly of The Complete History of DMA Design for the use of the Gore screenshot.
