Psygnosis has a very special place in my heart. Being an owner of an Amiga 1000 system, they made some very memorable games. Shadow of the Best
were two games I spent a ton of time playing. I remember how blown away I was with the graphics, coming from the Commodore 64.
Psygnosis, or Sony Liverpool as they were known, has been shut down
. They started out in 1984 and were acquired by Sony in 1993. You've probably heard of Wipeout
, which they produced for the Sony and was a release title for the European launch of the PSOne.
Besides Wipeout, they were also known for Lemmings. While I wasn't a fan of the series, I know many people that really enjoy the puzzler.
It's rather sad to see this studio close down for me and I hope that the folks let go are able to latch on to some place else.
