Lost Treasures of Gaming

Episode 12: Adventure

October 27, 2015

Our special guest this week is none other than Warren Robinett, the man behind the classic Atari 2600 game, Adventure.  Warren regales us with the inspiration behind the game itself as well as what it was really like to be a game developer for Atari back in the late 70's.  If you weren't aware, what we now call Easter Eggs in game was actually started by Warren himself in this very same game. We also learn, however, that he did not call it an Easter Egg back then.  It is our absolute pleasure to have Warren join us this week and we hope you enjoy it too.
