Savetz Posted December 10, 2015 Share Posted December 10, 2015 Released for the first time today — a holiday present from Aric Wilmunder: the unreleased, almost-finished sequel to Star Raiders for the Atari 8-bits. He created and developed it while working in the R&D lab of Atari coin-op. (This is not the Last Straighter rebranded game. Aric told me, “When The Last Starfighter didn’t do well in the theaters and marketing re-branded the Atari 800 Last Starfighter game as Star Raiders II, they didn’t take into account that there was already an actual sequel to Star Raiders that was just a few months away from completion. I was the designer and solo engineer who worked for about a year on the project as a member of an R&D team inside Atari Coin-Op.") My interview with Aric is published on the ANTIC podcast today. Our discussion of Star Raiders II starts at about the 30 minute mark. http://ataripodcast.libsyn.com/antic-interview-104-aric-wilmunder-star-raiders-ii-temple-of-apshai Here's video of it in action, and the ATR file and documentation is attached. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wb03mSdMaYc The files are attached, and also at https://archive.org/details/StarRaidersII_Wilmunder Wilmunder_Star_Raiders_II_8-2.atr Star Raiders II Controls.pdf The Authoritative Star Raiders II v0.3.pdf -Kevin 44 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
