CX 2687, Tempest!

In this episode I talk about Atari's unreleased prototype of Tempest, which is also their arcade game that I love so very much. The next episode will hopefully get me back on schedule, and that one will feature Mogul Maniac by Amiga. If you have any thoughts on that game, please send it to by end of day March 5th.

Yesterday was the 5th anniversary of my very first episode. I've had a lot of highs and lows while doing the podcast, but I still enjoy doing it and I'm glad you all are still with me. I'm looking forward to the next 5 or 10 or 20 years of doing this podcast. Thank you so much for listening!
