ANTIC Episode 27 – Contest!, PRGE

On this episode of ANTIC the atari 8-bit podcast: we talk about the release of the Star Raiders source code, how to set up an Atari club of your own, and lust over the 1400XL and 815 dual floppy drive.

Don’t forget, we have a contest going this month! Whoever transcribes the most ANTIC interviews from 11/1/15 to 11/30/15 will win a Defender cartridge for the Atari 400/800/XL/XE computers signed by none other than Steve Baker, the person who converted the game from the arcade version! Check with Kevin (kevin@savetz.com) to see what interviews need to be transcribed.
