August 2020 – it took a lot from us.
The news of losing both Chadwick Boseman and Curt Vendell hurt and hurt badly as their contributions to the collective community are as meaningful in both number as they are in prolific and lasting impact.
With that, we reflect on the respective contributions from both and pay our due respects, then it’s back to business as usual with gameroom updates, spending some of Brent’s money, discussion on the new Pixel Planet Arcade that is opening soon in TN and we speculate a bit on the newest game release by Stern Pinball (Avengers: Infinity Quest). Add to all of that and we feature a panel discussion (entitled “Dan Kitchen’s Goldrush”) from the 2019 Portland Retro Gaming Expo where Dan Kitchen talks about his upcoming game for the Atari 2600 (it’s a sequel to Activision’s Keystone Kapers) and is joined by his brother Garry Kitchen and prolific game designer David Crane.
Also – don’t forget to enter the Lit Frame’s contest giveaway! We’re taking submissions until Midnight EST on Sept. 15th!
Wherever you are in the world – we thank you for listening and hope that you and your family are safe and continue to be in good health.
We hope you enjoy the episode!
But wait…there’s more!
