Sounds very nice (now that I understand what it is about). Can you post some detailed pictures when you get a chance. And lastly, is this something you proposed to sell, or is it only a prototype?

just like the original game on PC or consoles have a soundtrack recorded on a disc so Atari also could have done the same background music. I well remember Quake with great music on the CD, or wipeout ... of course sounds of POKEY are mixed with music from SIO AUDIO IN.

seek? No, but it can be.

yes, atari can save file (wav) on SD and then play it...
