Video Games | Cotswold Video Games FDC



Issue Date: 21st Jan


The intention with the stamp issue is to celebrate the joy of video gaming through pioneering and influential British designed games. The 8 individual stamps feature classic games from the 1980s and 90s, which represent the range of genres, and to invoke a strong sense of nostalgia with such classics as; Elite from 1984 which virtually invented the space navigation genre and was the first British game to be a hit in the USA, whilst the quirky and irreverent game; Lemmings appealed to the British sense of humour but was popular world-wide.
