I never knew about the Tetris arcade clone. Was this made available in the store?

So sad to hear about Ken's passing. My first homebrew purchase was Beef Drop, and I've enjoyed that game immensely. Ken was a very talented developer and contributor to our community. He will be sorely missed.

My condolences to Mr. Ken Siders and family. B*nQ is one of my TOP favorite homebrews for 7800!

I really hope his wife sees this thread and knows how much of a positive impact her husband had on all of us.

I don't think he was married. The obit I saw didn't mention a spouse.
OK, better put, I hope his friends and family see this.

I'm sad to hear this and 49 is way too young. While I first became a member in 2005, I knew about the Atari 7800 homebrew community since 2001. At the time Ken did Beefdrop, Ken did the most impressive homebrew game for the system.
Ken Siders was a great Atari 7800 homebrew programmer. Beef Drop and B@nq are must have homebrew Atari 7800 games. I hope someone can finish Ken's Tetris game for the system.
My condolences are to Ken's friends and family.

I'm so sorry to read this. I have been in the middle of moving to my new house and all that entails for the past month so I am literally just now reading this for the first time. I just want to say that Ken Siders provided myself and I'm sure many of us here with countless hours of enjoyment with our classic Atari systems, thanks to his masterful programming skills. Atari 5200 Beef Drop was possibly the first homebrew game I purchased, and it was, and still is, so absolutely incredible, a real work of art.
He will truly be missed simply by his absence from the community. I will honor his legacy by playing his games for many years to come. This is a guy who will be remembered at Atari Age, leaving a magnificent footprint on the homebrew scene. Seriously guys, his games are top shelf, are they not?

I didn't know Kenneth personally. My artwork was accepted by Kenfused and Atari Age for Beef Drop. Very symbolic to me. Thanks again Ken, wherever you are! My condolences to everyone who knew Ken.
