S2:E13: The Haunting of the Vertical Blank


Into the vertical Blank: Generation Atari Season 2 Episode 13: The Haunting of the Vertical Blank

This time the guys discuss “scary” Atari games (mostly *not* scary all), some real-word experiences that beg the question “Was Jeff and Steve’s 520 Atari ST haunted?”, a story about a creepy pen and paper “game” that had a profound effect on the pair growing up, and finally, a look into the very scary world viral indie games circa 2007-2008.

ESP Test Photos

Here are a few of the results from the actual ESP tests we took with our dad. We found these last week in storage facility. Notice, Jeff and my dad seem to have been close on the “house” and the “tree” while I (Steve) was close with the “ice cream cone/balloons”. Memory can be a funny funny thing I guess.
