13 Aug 2011: Rye



We went to Rye a couple of months ago, here are the pictures. I actually got this update ready two months ago but never got round to writing the words. Well, here we are.

Electron Dance Corner

Electron Dance has plunged into a serious project that covers 80s gaming, using a modern analytical eye and a more journalistic attention to detail: an interview with Brian Moriarty; a look at a pivotal historic moment in Infocom's Planetfall; a well-read article on an Atari title called Necromancer and its late developer Bill Williams; a look at the origin of Boulder Dash and an interview with its author Peter Liepa; exploring a nuclear reactor simulation written by Chris Crawford in 1981 (see video below, a surprising success by Electron Dance standards); and finally the conception of LucasArts and its first game Rescue on Fractalus! with an interview with its designer. It's been a punishing schedule and piles more work than originally estimated. Going to take it really easy once all this is over.
