I wrote a blog post that's a little more story-telly than normal for my site. In case anyone might enjoy a little walk down memory lane:

I enjoyed this.  And it is making me think again about a book I have it in my head to write...

Well done. I love personal stories about the ST. Starglider and Starglider 2

remain two of my favorite ST games. I wonder how many people actually

took the time to read the novella. Honestly, it's a good story.

Nice. Starglider, Timebandit, Megaroids, Major Motion and Neochrome FTW! Of course not long after we'd see Dungeon Master, Oids, Arkanoid and so many other cool games. The early ST days rocked. I used my 520ST with a black and white TV for a few months before getting an SC1224. I couldn't believe how awesome it was to paint with light!
