The Complete History of
DMA Design
Mike Dailly



For years Steve Hammond threatened to write a full history of DMA, but never quite got around to it, just too many things got in his way. The lack of raw material, fading memories, and just being too damn busy have always meant that it remained a secret. However, after doing the Lemmings story, I started to gather more and more information, and background material on DMA, so I can now finally write the history of a company that lasted 12 years, and helped to change the worlds perception of games.

So now, we are proud to present,
The Complete History of DMA Design.

Chapter 1
