In my latest episode I interview game programmer Thomas Jentzsch.   Many of his games are available in cart here on Atariage.  He has made some  great homebrews  and there is more to come.  I was really happy that I got a chance to talk to him about his games, his background and what's to come.

Hi there,

 

Thanks for sharing. I can't say enough good things about Thomas. He has worked with a number of use 2600 homebrewers. I couldn't do what I do without his help and guidance. He is a great and patient mentor.

 

It would be wonderful to have a revisit of Stella @ 20...(e.g. Stella @ 45?) and have Thomas interviewed. He has contributed heavily to the 2600 homebrew scene.

I couldn't have said it better. I have been blessed thanks to my channel to have met and talked to some really brilliant and creative people. The way he takes a game and makes it his own is just amazing. I have become addicted to Star Castle.

We have some really talented people that hang out here and I want to help get the word out for them. If you are a programmer or know of any DM me.

Amazing programmer and contributor to be sure - a living legend as far as these things are concerned. I've said it before, but Thomas has produced several of my favorite homebrews. As always, thank you Thomas. And thanks for helping to keep the passion of our beloved machines alive and kicking! :love:

One of the classiest guys in the classic gaming community.  Thomas is a brilliant talent and just an all around swell cat.  We need more interviews like these with the folks making stuff happen today to go alongside the interviews with the pioneers of VCS programming.  Thank you!

Believe me, I plan on it.  I'm securing interviews with as many homebrew and classic programmers as I can.  I like to be able to help them showcase their talent.  My channel is growing and I hope it can be an opportunity for more people to learn about the homebrew titles that these talented people have made.
