5/3/2014. And in other Knightmare Knews: Plans are now in motion for a first-ever Knightmare Convention, to take place over the weekend of 9th-11 of May. Prospective guests potentially include Tim Child, creator of the series, Hugo Myatt, who played Treguard, Mark Knight, who played Lord Fear, Ah Wok, Rothberry and Sir Hugh de Wittless, Iona Kennedy, who played Sidriss, Greystagg and Maldame, Cliff Barry, who played Lissard, Raptor and Brother Strange, and David Rowe, who was the main artist of the visuals on the show. However, for the Convention to go ahead, it needs financing and fast. Any fans of the series who wish to see the Convention happen, and who have money to spare, please visit the Knightmare Convention 2014 page on the Indiegogo fundraiser website, and pledge anything you can spare. The target is a steep one of over £12,100, and there are just three weeks to reach it, so please help as urgently as you can.
WELCOME to the home of the Dunshelm Players. Previously known as the KM-RAmDram team, we are a drama/storytelling group dedicated to reviving the profile of Knightmare, a classic TV gameshow created by Tim Child in the 1980′s.
Knightmare was interactive fiction played out on television; a computer game in a chromakey studio, with the part of the game avatar being taken up by the image of a human contestant superimposed on the chambers of a computer-generated dungeon, a dark, deadly realm of magic and monsters. The series attracted audiences in excess of five million at its height.
The Dunshelm Players team was formed in 2005, then going by the rather clumsy title of KM-RAmDram (short for Knightmare Radio Amateur Dramatics), with the purpose of creating audio-based and prose-based media in tribute to the series. Their first project, a drama play titled Famous For Retreating, was published in the late Autumn of 2006.
