Christopher Brookmyre and the team at RedBedlam are huge fans of Burnistoun and the work of Kirsty and Robert, Christopher recently commented “I’m a huge fan of Burnistoun, and I particularly admired Kirsty and Robert’s ability to bring so many different comic characters to life”.  Christopher continued “I thought they’d be the perfect voice casting to distinguish our game in a genre that tends to take itself way to seriously”.
