Fifteen years ago, Longbow Games (known as "LDA Games" at the time) was little more than a hobby project for Seumas McNally. But all that changed when Seumas and his family released DX-Ball 2. He had a hit on his hands, and he was able to carve out a little independent game company at a time when indie games and digital distribution were almost unheard of. Seumas unfortunately passed away in March 2000, but his legacy lives on.
Over the last fifteen years, we've heard from a lot of stories from people who have had their lives changed by DX-Ball 2, be it a shared experience between children and parents, a soothing relief for people going through tough times, or an inspiration to go on and create their own projects.
Most recently, we've heard from a fan who goes by the name of Cresun. Cresun was particularly inspired by the music in DX-Ball 2, which was created by Eric Gieseke aka Sidewinder. Cresun has been digging through the music files for DX-Ball 2 and has remastered each track. In addition, he's also created a tribute site for the 15-year anniversary, and he plans to post one track every day, along with some other goodies. Be sure to head on over and show him some appreciation.
And a special thanks to everybody who has played DX-Ball 2 over the last 15 years!
