Wizard shot the food! What do I need to synthesize a voice similar to that in the videogame "Gauntlet?"

I'd like to create my own voice synthesis, similar to what you might hear in the old Odyssey 2 video game system, or the arcade game Gauntlet. Is it possible to do this without actually having the physical hardware from the arcade/video game system?
How are those voices created? Are they actual recordings that are then digitally converted, or is it an artificial computer voice, similar to the text-to-speech software currently available?
