The video game company Rebellion turned 30 this weekend (December 4th) and so to celebrate it shared an Easter-Egg-packed video on social media paying homage to its long and storied history.
The anniversary video, which explores a recreation of a teenager's bedroom, only lasts around a minute but includes a ton of references to the company's previous games. Obviously, there are nods to the company's more recent output like Evil Genius 2: World Domination and Sniper Elite 5, as well as some of its critically-acclaimed classics from the past, like Alien vs Predator for the Atari Jaguar.
There are also some deep cuts to be found too, like posters and footage of Eye of the Storm for the Commodore Amiga, video of the Rebellion F1 game Checkered Flag for Atari Jaguar, and references to the company's work on licensed games based on films like Mission Impossible (GBC) and The Mummy (PC, PlayStation). This is in addition to allusions to properties Rebellion now owns and operates like Roy of the Rovers and 2000AD.
The video then ends with a message from the co-founders Jason and Chris Kingsley, who started the company all the way back in 1992.
The CEO Jason Kingsley says:
"Just a message to all the fans and players out there, thank you so much for helping us with our journey to make great games."
His brother and the company's CTO Chris Kingsley adds:
"To all you out there, thank you so much for playing our games over the last 30 years. Here’s to the next 30 years."
Jason recently gave an extensive interview with the NME to celebrate 30 years, where he went over the studio's longevity, the thought process behind recent acquisitions, and his love of the medieval. It's well worth checking out if you want to learn more about the unconventional CEO.
