The Psygnosis Brand is well know and revered among long-in-the-tooth gamers Worldwide. Psygnosis were famed for their impressive innovation, stunning visuals, jaw dropping CGi in-game movies and lavish product packaging. Some of their most famous games were released on the fondly remembered Commodore Amiga Home Computer; Shadow of the Beast, Lemmings, Agony, The Killing Game Show, Carthage, Leander and Microcosm and many more...
In 2010 Tim Wright (aka. CoLD SToRAGE) told us he would be re-creating 25 of his best loved Commodore Amiga tracks in full CD Audio, with brand new instrumentation and new arrangements, bringing to life these old 8 bit tunes in the form of new, fully fleshed out musical works.
STRIX MEMORIA ? is that new album, and it's something rather special! Supplied on a custom 4Gb USB stick in the shape of the classic Psygnosis Owl Head logo, it comes packaged in an individually numbered (limited edition) stylish silver tin which is 'laser etched' with the Psygnosis 'Owl' logo. The package is rounded off with an 8 page fan-fold colour brochure.
“Interest in the album so far has been wonderful! We did have an annoying hiccup in the P&P department over Christmas because our suppliers had quoted us top-end tracked courier prices . But most people told us they simply wanted a basic but safe delivery.
We took all the comments we received on board and badgered the suppliers for their best prices. I'm now happy to say that our new P&P costs are very reasonable indeed, and shipment is now via International Air Mail or Royal Mail in the UK. Also to be fair, anyone who has paid for the courier service will receive a refund for the difference.
We hope this means that the album is now affordable to everyone who is interested ! ”
The album is available on pre-order up until the 31st January 2013. Orders are being taken Worldwide, and delivery is being fulfilled by International Air Mail and Standard Royal Mail.
