For this month’s Together Retro, we have focused on Sega’s arcade classic Outrun. In that article we mentioned some “really crazy fans” who were converting an Outrun arcade cab into an actual street vehicle. Dr. Garnet Hertz is the man behind that project.
Dr. Garnet Hertz is an artist, scientist, and critic whose work can be seen at conceptlab.com. In this episode of the podcast he discusses the Outrun cab conversion project, his history as a gamer, the field of game studies, and whether games are art. He also lets you know when and where you can see the finished project in action, so be sure to listen through to the end of the interview.
