It Came from the Desert is a 1989 action-adventure game by Cinemaware. It was originally released for the Commodore Amiga. Here’s the first trailer for It Came From The Desert, an indie horror comedy adapted from the ’80s action video game of the same name. The game, a heartfelt homage to 1950s B-movies, arrived in the late 1980s, and mixed action, horror, comedy, and bloody big ants. If you’re thinking that sounds in particular like Them!, then bonus points. In one of those modern culture cycles of fate, then, a game based around a film is now being turned into a different film. In conjunction with Cinemaware, Roger! Pictures of Finland has announced plans to bring It Came From The Desert to the big screen. The movie will be a mix of action, horror and comedy, and the firm has already pre-sold rights to several territories at the recent Cannes Film Festival.
