Inhumanoids' Tendril; video game superstar?

Postby Patraw » Thu Nov 08, 2012 10:08 am

I was reading some of the recent articles at Hardcore Gaming 101, and was amused to see that the programmers/artists of an old 1989 Commodore 64 computer game, called Project Firestart, bought an Inhumanoids Tendril toy and used digitized images of that for all the monsters in the game. You can read about it here (scroll down about halfway through for the bits about Tendril):

Wow you're going old school with this one. If they tried that now they'd lose their pants to the toy company. That game would have gotten a T rating for sure.
