Who are Gremlin?
Launching from a computer hardware store in 1984, Gremlin Graphics found instant success with the Monty Mole series before transitioning to a licensed developer with a range of arcade to home computer conversions.
Switching between sporting titles, licensed racing games, and platformers, Gremlin boasted a raft of instant classics, from Zool to the Premier Manager series, and many others. After renaming to Gremlin Interactive and developing games for th 32-bit platforms from 1994 onward, the Actua series was launched, aiming for graphical quality and realism with titles such as Actua Soccer.
Gremlin Interactive was eventually swallowed up into Infogrames Studios Limited, and when this studio was wound up, the remaining developers formed Sumo Digital.
The second cartridge in Evercade’s 2022 lineup is scheduled for release in March 2022. Learn more on the Evercade website.
