by Phil Wheat

Amiga fans rejoice! One of THE best games ever to grace that classic gaming machine is making it’s way to the movies. Game developer Cinemaware and Roger! Pictures have teamed to bring you It Came From the Desert – a movie version of the classic action-adventure GIANT KILLER ANT video game originally released in 1989. The film will reportedly tie into (NOT follow) the original game’s story and see new characters head to New Mexico decades later and discover new horrors…

Set in June of 1951, the game follows Greg Bradley, a geologist living in the remote town of Lizard Breath in the United States. After a meteorite falls in the outskirts of town, a large army of mutant-ants begins appearing across town, and the player is the only one who can stop it. The game’s incredible success among gamers has created a cult following that continues to this day, 25 years after the original release.

Directed by Marko Mäkilaakso, It Came From the Desert stars Mark Arnold, Harry Lister Smith, Vanessa Grasse and Claudia Trujillo.
