'Blade Runner' Film to Be Basis for New Video Game

May 10, 1995

Tuesday that it has obtained the rights to publish a video game based on the cyber-classic film, "Blade Runner."

The CD-ROM game due out next year will allow players to battle killer androids just as Harrison Ford does in the 1982 Warner Bros. film, in which he plays a lone bounty hunter pitted against a rogue band of killer androids in a world tyrannized by high-tech corporations.

The film has become popular among computer enthusiasts for its warnings about the dangers of secrecy and excessive control of information.
