Rick gives us another programming segment, and we include our usual feedback, news and fun (“George” is back too). See you on level 256!
*Note there are some audio issues with Tom Loughry’s interview due to a bad line. It was cleaned up as much as possible, but is not perfect.

The Intellivisionaries – Episode 4. Merry Christmas! We talk about the home-brew game “Christmas Carol Vs. The Ghost of Christmas Presents”, interview its designer/programmer James ‘dZ Jay’ Pujals, and do an in depth discussion of the game itself. We also interview Phil Boland about his Sears Overlay Set. And this episode is packed with holiday goodness, including a reworked Christmas Mix of The Intellivisionaries Theme, Intellivision Christmas music, and an additional original Christmas tune (“Lonely Christmas” – by Paul Nurminen) that accompanies our ‘end of year’ outtakes. Grab some eggnog, sit back and enjoy!
Due to multiple requests, here are two original music tracks (by Paul ‘Nurmix’ Nurminen) that are featured in every episode of The Intellivisionaries – minus the overdubs and the annoying chit chat! “The Intellivisionaries Theme” (the intro music used in the episodes), and “Treasured” (the music heard at the end of the episodes). Thanks for asking for them, enjoy! Also, extended mixes of both tracks are in the works… stay tuned!
The Intellivisionaries – Episode 3. In this episode we do a “deep dive” on Microsurgeon by Imagic, including an interview with its programmer and designer Rick Levine! We also have some Intellivision related news, some feedback from listeners (including some really fun Astrosmash memories), and an interview with William Moeller of Elektronite (with some sneak peeks at upcoming titles). And of course we’re bringing all the fun, music, and excitement that this historic platform warrants to yet another episode.
