The Bitmap Brothers were a UK based video game developer founded in 1987. The company entered the industry in 1988 with the scrolling shooter Xenon. They quickly followed with the classic Speedball. Prior to becoming the publisher of their own games (under Renegade Software), early Bitmap Brothers titles were distributed by Image Works and Konami.
The Bitmap Brothers were based in Wapping, East London and were privately owned. The company’s MD was Mike Montgomery, who had founded the company together with Eric Matthews and Steve Kelly.
Mark John Coleman is a computer graphics developer who frequently worked with the Bitmap Brothers; his graphics tend to be blocky, featuring rock, metal, and shiny organic textures; his animations tend to be cartoonesque and fluid.
