    Shadow of the beast lang

    Does anyone know what programming language Psygnosis programmed Shadow of the beast in? It was made in 1989, so I am going with C.

    I may be wrong, it could be delphi. I have googled but cannot find the answer. Does anyone know?

    Or maybe AMOS. It was very popular as a game programming language for the Amiga where the game first shown up.

    I don't think Object Pascal was ever used on Amiga machines, was it? And C somehow strikes me hard to be since according to a fan site it took two guys only 9 months for it to be developed and that with several never seen before features, like the parallax scrolling technique
    The programmer’s wife tells him: “Run to the store and pick up a loaf of bread. If they have eggs, get a dozen.”
    The programmer comes home with 12 loaves of bread.

    *OFFTOPIC* That game has the best music ever! I still have the floppy disc for the Amiga. Too bad the disc drive is broken, or else, I would be playing that badboy! Tough game though, I never got anywhere.

    Good class architecture is not like a Swiss Army Knife; it should be more like a well balanced throwing knife.
