The Bitmap Brothers: Universe combines an authoritative inside story, thoroughly researched via new, first-hand interviews with The Bitmap Brothers’ key figures – including founder Mike Montgomery and lead artist Dan Malone – with a breathtaking haul of never-before-seen archive material.

Highlights such as unused character concepts for Speedball 2: Brutal Deluxe, intricate pencil renderings of The Chaos Engine’s iconic cutscenes and early robot designs for Z form part of a rich collection of original production drawings.”
