Hello and welcome to the history of Antique Bandit Interactive! Here at the company, which is currently known as the full name of Antique Bandit Interactive Universe International, we take pride in what we create, despite what people say about us. Our hours are excellent, but enough about the company. Let us tell you about the history of the company!
Antique Bandit Interactive started in 1960 as a simple radio broadcaster. We would get licenses to play jazz and songs from the then-up-and-coming rock and roll scene. Antique Bandit Interactive also looked into other fields of entertainment, such as books and even television, before setting it's eyes on making video games. More on the television part later, but our radio station WABI 1470 AM started airing January 1st, 1970. Unfortunately, through the many natural-and questionable-disasters that have plagued our company, many of the earliest broadcastings, even important ones, have been mostly lost to time. We are lucky to have any type of archive at all thanks to people at home recording some of our broadcasts with what they could find. Through the 70s and 80s, we played jazz, rock, disco, and many other types of songs while we started to develop games. The first game made by the new company was The Egg, a text adventure set in medieval times where you play as a late dragon hatchling. The game has unfortunately been forgotten. There isn't even access to a full version anymore, as any finished project files were lost during a massive power outage in 1984. Antique Bandit Interactive actually published another game the same year, titled The Void. Not too much is known about the game, although the lucky few people who remember playing it say it was about "Antique Bandit" himself trapping you in a void until you released his spirit. In the latter 90s, we decided to finally branch out into the television industry. While we had a solid five-year run, in the end we couldn't keep up with the costs and had to stop. However, our radio broadcasts continue to this day, although it's only been as recently as 2020 that we've started uploading our broadcasts for online consumption.
