Short notice, but Mossy is doing a livestream of his favorite 1980s Mac games to promote his book on the same topic.

The stream will be here:

https://www.twitch.tv/mossrc

Thanks for the heads up! I wonder why he didn't post anything on MacScene. I'll go rectify that :D

My browser security is preventing me making an account, but it's been a great nostalgia trip so far!

Well, that was fun!

Suggestion for the next event: WAN party :D The Javascript-based pce-macplus emulator will run a bunch of titles... we could do Bolo, NetTrek, NetRisk, Strategic Conquest, Spectre....

I think I'm missing a few that should be obvious.

Thanks for helping spread the word, guys. I was planning to post about it on MacScene and a few other places but forgot amidst all the preparations of the actual games and streaming setup (not to mention the several hours of Mario Odyssey I played for the weekend). I'll definitely announce the next one with a longer lead-up period and on more websites.

I'd love to do a WAN party one. I'm terrible at most networked multiplayer games that aren't Spectre or Super Maze Wars, but it'd be a lot of fun. I'll also do a 90s one at some point, and maybe a shareware one or some specific genre or series.

Looks like I'll be doing a stream with Charlie Jackson one day, too. He said he's up for it.

How many unique visitors did you eventually get to the stream, Mossy?

108 uniques, apparently, which is better than I expected. Total views was 168, so some probably left for a bit and came back. 18 people participated in the chat. Average viewer count across the duration was also 18, with a peak of 26 about half an hour in (and again about one hour in). And there were 711 chat messages.

I count for at least 3 of the non-uniques, and bumped the number up to 18 at the start and up to 26 the other two times :) Unfortunately, things lagged a bit, so people were chatting about stuff I hadn't seen yet :\

My kids also sat and watched for a while; they're fascinated by the origins of Mac games.

Which made me think: I'll have to request our local library get a copy or two of your book :)

Oh, yes. Libraries. Definitely wanting to get the book into as many libraries as possible. One of the things still on my post-release to-do list is to contact a few libraries I use about getting copies and to reach out to some academic game historians and archivists around the world about possibly getting copies at their institutions.
