Of Marbles and Madness


Here are my Marble Madness the floppy disks from my formative years as a little video gamer. I love that the game designers are featured on the insert, running away from the killer marbles like they're stuck in Tron! 

Marble Madness was ridiculously hard but had mesmerizing isometric visuals. The title song is pretty rocking too. Here's an impossible speed run if you want to imagine what it's like to have world champion marbles.

Woah, neat. This package is vinyl record sized? I had no idea EA did such awesome package designs. I wonder if there are more like this.

wow - crazy how the video makes it look so easy to play!

Hey Mathew! It's probably about 7" sized not the full LP. It seems as if it's some kind of 2nd printing of the game.

Tina, speed run videos are all lies! Seems like the players are supernatural!

Oh my, you're the one who designed this zine that I have on my desk! What a coincidence. I really had no idea--something tells me I should've been paying more attention while reading the zine. Or this blog. To be honest, I may identify more with the blog, but ... Eh, I'll just stop talking now, haha.
