Thanks for sharing! Good interview. It's always interesting to hear the perspective of former Atari Corp. employees. It sounds like Mindripper would have been a lot of fun.

I've never been to ArcadeAttack before; listening to their Jaguar CD podcast.

Faran did you get to meet Lance H? How far along was the game?

Did you ever actually see any part of the Mortal Kombat 3 beta running?

Yup I got to meet Lance H and even got him to do some animations for the game. He was pretty cool. n regards to MK 3...I don't think it got far but don't remember specifics maybe a title  or selection screen, if there was something more I think it would have surfaced. It was no where near a "beta".
