Artist's Description

Released as a launch game for the ‘Byteware’ ‘Rev-16’ in April, 1989. ‘A Clockwork Orange: The Videogame’ is a scrolling fighter developed by the software company ‘Inspirosoft’, Unfortunately ‘Inspirosoft’ could only afford the name and story of the book and were therefore not allowed to use any of the Warner Bros film visuals, characters or settings. The designers had to re-imagine the story using only the book, which funnily enough only the programmer read and the art department paid no attention to, So the end result was a game that vastly differs from the source material. ‘Inspirosoft’ was often accused of simple designs, reusing artwork and game sprites in order to quickly cash in on any franchise, but with the benefit of hindsight it is now up to history to decide.

This image that is part of a poster series about Inappropriately Film to Game tie-ins. This is a collaboration between Digital Artist Stefan Smith and Writer Jonny Griffin and is not intended to be taken seriously.
