  • Yeah, owning a MAME cab only leads to owning real ones. MAME just isn't good enough. It's a gateway drug.

There's an interview up with one of the creators of Exidy's Chiller. Pretty neat to hear a bit of the history on this infamous game.

No prob. I'd always been curious about how such a game actually got released.

Good read. the Ironic part is the torture galleries are what drove me away from the game, I never knew it became a more "standard lightgun shooter" after that.
No matter one's station in life, the Dance of Death unites us all.

i play light guns arcade games with my trackball. it works great. The game superimposes cross hairs for aiming. Give it a try if you have a trackball.
