Episode 4: Christmas Carol and More

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!
