Celebrating its 30th anniversary, SEGA AM2’s iconic coin-op racer Out Run is the subject of our latest podcast retrospective. Leon, Ryan (new to the game in 2016!) and returning guest Dan Clark talk arcade awe, sprite-scaling, Magical Sound Showers, and special techniques as well as touching upon the myriad – successful and unsuccessful – conversions over the decades. The panel also remember the game’s direct legacy of spin-offs and unofficial sequels, stopping short of OutRun 2 – which will get its own podcast in the future.
Music used in this issue:
1: Magical Sound Shower by Hiroshi Kawaguchi
2: Last Wave by Hiroshi Kawaguchi
