Highly Acceptable In the 80s: Majesty 2 Retro Trailer

One of our Unknown Pleasures for 2009, Majesty 2 once again makes our heart happy with their latest trailer. It's done in the style of an 80s made-for-TV serial. It also features an impressive technical feat by creating a soundtrack which sounds identical to Dallas, but probably not in a legally infringing way. You'll find it below...

While Paradox had mailed us anyway, Bill Meltsner wrote to us excitedly about the Majesty trailer, pointing at his own favoured 80s-TV-drama, Magnum PI. Which is quite the thing...

And since we're talking credit-sequences, it gives me a fine excuse to link to the wondrous opening for Stingray.

Which remains awesome on about eighty levels.
