THE SPEECH page
Impossible Mission is a Commodore 64 platform retrogame released in 1984 by Epyx which featured some early stunning digital speech.
This page is a tribute to this famous speech with some funny and interesting variations made with different hardware effects or samplers.
GAME PLOT now something totally new: in this game you are the good guy ! cool eh? a 1 st class 8 bits secret agent charged to stop an atomic menace by the classic repressed evil man the genius doctor Elvin Atombender.
You and your grey pants must face an atomic menace without a weapon.
The mission: "During the past three days, key military computer installations in every major world power have reported that someone has gained access to their primacy missile attack computers. Only one person is capable of tampering on this scale. PROFESSOR ELVIN ATOMBENDER. We believe that Elvin is working to break the computer launch codes. If he succeeds he will triggera missile attack that will destroy tho world. You must penetrate Elvin's stronghold and stop him. To succeed you will have to evade the robot guard, break his security code and flnd his control centre. Your only weapons will be your keen analytical mind and your MIA9366B pocket computer. Good luck. The world is depending on you."
MR GREY PANTSS SAVEEE THE WORLD you mission is to enter into a hidden fortress and collect all the pieces of a puzzle while dodging the lethal robot guards- but since you're not smart as the Elvin, you do have any weapons.... The only solution is to rely on your athletic pixelated jump to face the not-so-friendly robots.
THE ORIGINAL SPEECH the game was one of a kind platform with stunning character animation and quite challenging.The original 1984 edition uses digitized speech technology produced by third party company ESS- Electronic Speech Systems (also Ghostbusters, Beach Head II). The game just welcomes the player with the threatening creepy guy Elvin voice: "Another visitor! Stay a while, stay forever! ".
Now listen to ALL the original commodore 64 speeches:
SPEECH ANALYSIS SID SPEECH: Destroy "hum" my robots - a lot of hiss out of the SID
Remakes, follow-ups original 1984 game has been ported to many computers and consoles, then, during the following years also many remakes and spin-off have been released albeit basically keeping same platform game structure.
SPEECH PROCESSED BY OTHER MACHINE
I recorded some fun variations about the "another visitor" speech processed by different samplers, effects, vocoders or whatever!
This will be regularly updated or contribute and UPLOAD your ELVIN sound :)
