We’re taking another spin through the time vortex and jumping out in the era of the Atari 7800 this week to play the 1986 iconic Atari game ROBOTRON 2084. If you’re one of the few who hasn’t heard of or played this legendary game, this might help: just imagine this is an even MORE dystopian version of the world set out in George Orwell’s novel 1984. It’s no surprise that Orwell might be interested in writing about robots. Orwell, famously, was a cyborg novelist.*
*That might not be accurate.**
**But how cool would that be????
