The UK’s video game legacy is being celebrated with a new set of stamps from the Royal Mail. The collection, will cost $19 and will consist of iconic designs from the likes of Wipeout, Worms and, or course Tomb Raider.
The collection has been designed to resemble the exceptional work UK game developers did from the 80s to the 90s, designing games that went on to make a huge wave in the ocean of global games. Every game featured has its own essential UK-centric back story. Elite was the pioneer in 3D games and Populous was the first civilization building game, one of the most popular PC games to have ever been created.
Tomb Raider, has been given its own specific mini-set of four separate stamps, the game’s graphics are visualized in an evolution from the pointy-pony tails to slip 4k definition. As the Royal Mail’s Philip Parker explained, “The UK has been at the forefront of the video games industry for decades,” noting that “in the 1980s and 90s young designers grappled with coding on the new microcomputers and set the template for the industry with iconic games.”
