Now that the sun has set on our trip to the gaming past/future during Intellivision month and my Sears Tele-Games is back in it's lonely, dusty corner (to be fair, most corners in my house are dusty), we return to the present in episode 127 with the Activision (squee!) title FREEWAY from 1981.
What could be better than getting out on the highway for a little road trip? Well, mowing down some poultry while you're at it, of course! But in this game, you get to channel your inner birdie, playing as the Gallus gallus domesticus trying to cross the road. Thing is, ten lanes of traffic don't give a feathery fig if you actually make it. Keep your feathery head down and keep moving!
In this week's story, we actually try to answer the question: Why did the chicken cross the road?
Thanks to Aretha Franklin! I couldn't have done this week's story without her.
Here's the article about using Raspberry Pi to bring Doctor Who's K-P back to life.
