Goat Up is a love letter to perhaps the one genre of game that game maker Jeff Minter and his team at Llamasoft had never made: The platformer.
Hall of fame video game create Jeff Minter doesn’t make bland games. They’re a festival of old-school graphics and techno music. And he demonstrates his latest, Minotaur Rescue, while wearing a minotaur mask.
That’s because this is a music video as directed by Llamasoft, creators of tripped out, gamer-bewildering titles like Tempest 2000 and Space Giraffe. The song? Electronic musician Tiga’s “Mind Dimension.”
