See a retro Zerg rush

If it exists, there’s probably an 8-bit version of it on YouTube. Gameplay footage of the retro StarCraft that might’ve been is quickly becoming the viral video of the day. See some blocky marines ward off a Zerg rush in this charming video.

Owen Dennis, the creator of the video, explains that “This is gameplay footage from the original game “Starcraft” as it was released in 1984. My uncle worked as an assistant programmer for Blizzard/Activision in the early 80’s. I found this in his closet next to an old Colecovision.”
