@jennatar why do I feel like this book would have appealed to you as a child https://www.amazon.com/Flat-Man-Creepies-Rose-Impey/dp/0769633684
Exceptionally proud of this investigative video I put together into the history of the RCA Studio II, from its PC beginnings in 1970 through the odd bumps in the road like arcade machines, unreleased successors, and hobbyist computers. https://youtu.be/o35y6W9hI-o
I'm so glad I started this Atari project (and the RCA one). I'm learning a ton about these games talking to the developers, I've helped rescue some unreleased games, and I think answering questions that have largely not been asked while there's still time. I just wish that I had more time to spend video editing so I could do more of the things quicker! I want people to know what I know!
Actually no, I think I'm going to dip into the old Doctor Who game I used to play in and bring back Space Olympics... https://youtu.be/XVoBQqketHM
So far they've rescued some scientists, talked down a planet suffering from overzealous Asimov robots, prevented their ship from being torn apart into another dimension, and as a follow up to that, prevented extradimensional aliens from colonizing their universe by engaging in a truce with a splinter group of Klingons. I feel like they're going to need a lighthearted comedown, maybe I need tribbles
I GMed my fifth Star Trek RPG session over the weekend, and I'm absolutely loving it. The players are having a lot of fun and I'm enjoying seeing how the story develops - I've taken to just writing a very broad stroke outline that's largely background and just adapt on the fly to what they're doing. It's the perfect approach and system when you hate complicated combat encounters and prefer storytelling!
