Classic Game Postmortem:
In this classic game postmortem Franz Lanzinger, the original programmer and designer, analyzes, reviews, and spills the secrets of Atari's classic arcade game Crystal Castles. Featuring Bentley Bear picking up gems and getting chased by trees and bees, Crystal Castles broke ground as a fast paced yet nonviolent 3D isometric game, Atari's first arcade character game with an ending and included an ingenious secret warp system. Franz, also a professional pianist, performs the music on his stage piano with the audience getting a close-up view, live. The talk features rare documents, sketches, photos, videos and even actual 6502 code from the heyday of Atari coin-op, defiantly known as "Coin-op, the real Atari".
