I Bought a Game Company!

 Okay, okay, I didn't buy the whole company exactly, but I bought all the IP for their games!

You may remember them from the early 80s. The company is Occidental Designs. They made a lot of obscure arcade games, with limited releases, and one of their best games was Bumpy Grumpy.

Wait, you don't remember Bumpy Grumpy? Personally, I vaguely remember playing it on a trip to see the St. Louis Arch back in 3rd grade on a field trip. Were ate dinner at a smoky Pizza Hut and I was drinking way too much Dr. Pepper.
The original company behind Bumpy Grumpy was Occidental Designs. Ring a bell? Did you know Occidental Designs was the only game company endorsed by both Milli Vanilli AND Orson Welles?
And I know you're old enough to remember Milli Vanilli. And how GOOD they were at singing, right? They sure were authentic. Boy, oh boy, they were true artists. When Milli Vanilli endorsed a company, you knew that company was on the up-and-up.

When you get a break later tonight, you should skim through the "history" of Occidental Designs. If you're into arcade stories, you'll get a real kick out of it.

" You’ve lost your papers and are late to work!
Race through packed streets and zip by hordes of wacky drivers. "
We're bringing back this amazing arcade game by first releasing it on Steam.
If you could please add it to your wishlist, as it really helps us get it in front of more people.
And long live the arcade!
