Lemmings Tribes Pins

Beach Lemming Pin

What amazing things I can find when rummaging around in the attic. I thought I had found all the DMA memorabilia, in boxes and scattered around everywhere, but apparently (and fortunately!) not. They were created, I believe, as promotional items for Lemmings 2: The Tribes. Of course there were twelve tribes in total and I’ve …

Sometime in the last week someone has taken the effort to paint an entire Lemmings level on a wall in Dundee, which as you know is the spiritual and literal and physical home of Lemmings. As is usual for this kind of thing, no-one knows who the artist is. And if they do then they …

Oh No! More Lemmings (Graffiti)

The graffiti keeps on coming! Well, grafitti and other artwork. But is there more than just Lemmings out there? Are Lemmings the most recognisable characters from the DMA stable?

Not sure I’d characterise DMA as not-big before they transitioned to a being of pure energy (i.e. became Rockstar). At one time DMA was the largest independent game …
