In a recent blog post, Bob Baffy, an Audio Director for more than 12 years who has shipped over 70 titles, describes how he went about putting together the user interfaces for Midway’s Arcade Origin. The goal was to evoke the feelings and memories of people who played these classic games.

At the end of the article, Bob includes a clip from one of his favorite games from the era, Marble Madness.
