July 30, 2018 by muguk

At HaxoGreen 2018 in Luxembourg, Gunstick/ULM released an updated version of his talk on all things chip-sound.

HaxoGreen is an international, 4-day open-air event in Luxembourg for people interested in technology or art. It provides a small but relaxed atmosphere for free exchange of technical, social, and political ideas.

At this event, Gunstick/ULM gave an updated version of his guide to the evolution of soundchip music on the Atari ST. It's a blow-by-blow walkthough of all things YM-2149: from the early days through to the modern era of music-making on our machines.

Interview with Tord Jansson

June 28, 2018 by ST Graveyard

News illustration image It is with great pleasure, and even a little bit of pride, that I'm doing the following announcement. We were able to talk with Tord Jansson. Tord was one of the members of the Swedish software company Unique Developments. He has given us a lot of history and details on the company that pushed the boundaries of the ST with games like Obsession and Substation. I'm sure a lot of people are gonna love this.

A very big thank you to Tord for sharing this wealth of information with the scene.

Random review

I love "Ikari Warriors". It's the best game in its genre. Even if you complete it, you'll be playing it again and again. And the two player option is just fabulous.

Did you know?

In the mid 80's Atari was approached by a company called Nintendo. They asked if Atari was interested in distributing their new 8 bit system. At that time, Jack Tramiel was head of the Atari company. He declined the offer, saying Atari wanted to stop releasing consoles and focus on personal computers instead! So in the end, Nintendo had to distribute the consoles themselves ... In just a few months, they wiped Atari from the throne!
