Hurricane, WV ehh?

You weren't part of Bare Bones software, were you?


I grew up down the road in Huntington and later in Barboursville.

Bare Bones? The BBEdit guys? No, I never worked for them. I have used a bunch of their software and used to recommend it often when I worked for Apple retail.

I'm glad to meet another (former) West Virginian! I lived out of state for most of my adult life but have returned in the past couple years, and I really like living here.

lol no.

There was a store in Hurricane named Bare Bones software. They sold a wide variety of computer software back in the 90s. I remember buying cd32 stuff from them. I think they went under around 97 or so. Several of their guys were hardcore Amiga guys.

According to google it was at 3060 Route 60 East Hurricane, WV 25526

Not sure if that was a physical store or just someone's house as I just ordered stuff from them over the phone.

You asked on the Marble Madness episode if anyone knows which other coin-op games ran on Amiga hardware. Aside from the game that sparked the debate (Mad Dog McCree), the ones I can think of are...

Gallagher's Gallery
Mad Dog II: The Lost Gold
Space Pirates
Who Shot Johnny Rock

I'm really enjoying the show by the way. Your laid back and under-produced style is so refreshing. When the content is so substantial you don't need dozens of randomly inserted 'funny' clips to pad it out.

Thanks dreamkatcha! I have the same feelings you do about "funny" clips in podcasts. I appreciate the list of coin-ops!

W00t! Another amiga podcast, YES! I will definitely check it out and follow if interesting

Btw, beware of episode burnout by churning out episodes too fast. Just a tip (for my own good of course, so more content will follow)

Zool; what a tedious, mean-spirited game. You're punished with every step you take and it runs so uncontrollably fast, every one of them is a miss-step. I felt dizzy just watching your YouTube play-through, especially the part where the protagonist (definitely not an ant) splits in two like a bleary-eyed after-image. Could someone pass me a sick bag?
