History of Vroom

Postby ST Graveyard » Wed May 10, 2017 9:15 pm

Hi all,

Just wanted to share this video with those who have not seen it :
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZTd-fFScLGA

Wasabim turned an original interview with Daniel Macré from Lankhor.Net into a little "Vroom" documentary. I think it looks stunning. We did our best at adding decent translation (subtitles) but in part 3 when Daniel is going really technical, we could use some help, so if you have some time (and know French and English), let us know.

Enjoy this little piece of history. Something really cool for Vroom fans ... like myself! ;)

Cheers,
Maarten

The amount of hours I whittled away on Vroooom. That would have to be in my top 10 of all Atari games. Nice to see how it came about.

Thanks for the link! I had absolutely no idea there's an Atari ST successor to Vroom Multiplayer at all.

I have sent to ST graveyard the english translation of the very last part, causing troubles until now. It's in english, and i sent it back to him :)
