Superior Software Posters

Post by blackwitch » Thu Nov 29, 2018 6:22 pm

Hi all.

Does anyone remember sending off for posters by Superior Software.

They were Crazee Rider, Codename Droid and Palace of Magic and Ravenskull.

I'm looking for the Codename Droid poster but can't find one anywhere.

They were printed by Impact posters in Sheffield.

Not the poster, but the advert itself, if that helps. :)

Here's the link to a decent scan of the A4 POS poster for Crazee Rider if you don't have it already.

Having discovered my then flat was within ten minutes' walk of it, one of the very first things I did when moving to Sheffield in mid-2010 was to amble over to have a look at the outside of Neepsend House, Percy Street, Sheffield, home of Impact Games (nee Impact Posters).

A thoroughly unremarkable-looking place at the time, but part of the ever-increasing craft beer- and food-led regeneration of that part of the city since then, possibly helped on in its case by the presence of the Sheffield Brewery (est. 2006) just round the corner.

From Impact to IPA, or posters to porter, in one easy step, then. :-)

I wrote that address on so many envelopes! I used to correspond with Steve and Mark Botterill a lot back in the day as I bought loads of stuff from Impact Games/Impact Posters - they were always very kind to me. I've got some letters in England they sent me about designing Repton levels.
