This week we look at Atari's 1978 game SURROUND.
Yep, there it is.
This...strategy game, I guess? pits you against the computer or your opponent to see which one of you can paint lines on the screen faster to box the other player in. The graphics are rudimentary; the gameplay simple (though addictive). There are no characters, dialogue, back story or even stakes. PERFECT for a story-based, game review podcast.
I must have been crazy to pick this one. Clearly I'm unwell. Have pity and give it a listen. Thanks!
