TCW Podcast Episode 094 - Epyx not Epic
This is an epic story about Epyx. But don't confuse it with Epic! We look at the computer game company, and the many bits of software that had influences at the dawn of home computing. Everything from the first RPGs to action games that are remembered fondly, especially in Europe. Not to mention the worldwide appeal of the Games series featuring Olympic events. Sadly the company lost sight of its goals with management changes, and was gone by the early 90's. However employees of Epyx continued to influence the video game industry for many years to come.
