Friends, welcome back to possibly an unexpected but I hope nonetheless welcome episode of the Diary of An Arcade Employee Podcast. This special is all about Atari’s fantastic 1980 arcade classic Warlords. In addition with this of course being the 26th episode as well as the 26th of the month – you know what that means, right? Happy Atari Day! Seriously, what better way to celebrate that fan chosen day that honors the lasting legacy of Atari than discussing Warlords, right? Now I do of course realize it has been nearly a year since the last episode – that hiatus from podcasting was something that needed to be done. However I honestly felt that with the recent Saturday Frights Podcast specials I should go ahead and tackle Warlords – after all I did kind of tease it on the Sunset Riders episode.
On this episode as always I do my level best to try and shine the spotlight on those who had a hand in creating Warlords – giving a brief overview of the gameplay itself and talking about some of the differences between the upright and cocktail cabinets. I was able to find some vintage audio treats to you share with you as well as some interesting trivia that you are going to enjoy.
Furthermore, I was lucky enough to stumble upon an absolutely amazing interview from over on the AtariAge forums that you will want to check out for yourself. It is an interview by Will Nicholes who has the pleasure of chatting with Carla Meninsky, the programmer for the popular port on the Atari 2600.
As always I really do appreciate you taking time out of your busy schedule and being kind enough to listen to the show – but without further ado, don your stoutest suit of armor and prepare yourself for Warlords!
