Retroist Adventure Podcast

Welcome to the Retroist Adventure Podcast. On today’s show I talk all about the video game classic Atari 2600 Video Game, Adventure. I talk about the game’s creations, gameplay and its many variations and ports. This is one of the first video games to contain an easter egg, so naturally I discuss that as well. Music throughout the show was provided by the great and powerful Peachy.

    @electric, does the audio for the powerpoint exist anywhere? I would be great to hear the lecture that went with this presentation.

    The properties on the file say “SIGGRAPH ’96 Slides” – So it could have (possibly) been a presentation at SIGGRAPH given in 96. There are some CGE keynote speeches floating around, so there is audio somewhere!

  5. Never cared for this game. But in the realm of adventure games, this is a great start. Rather ground-breaking when you think of it.

    The podcast, as with the others, IS EXCELLENT! Your podcasts are WORLD CLASS!

    There is a part in “ANESthetized” which describes (in some colorful language) an incident where an older brother is shown something extremely hard to find in an NES game. However, in “Adventure”, we have a… (hidden dot behind a wall?) – Come on!!!
