  1. Do you mean Xanth F/X?
  2. There was a homebrew attempt by someone else at Digital Eclipse, Mike Mika. (Warning: Flickering)
  3. Bally was also working on games for the Atari 8-bit computers, Intellivision, and ColecoVision. I found this shot of Kickman in a CBS catalog. It looks like an Intellivision version, but it could just be a mockup like most of the shots in there.
  4. Someone posted the PCBs here in 2016 (I just found this): Most of them were manufactured by K-Byte, except the ones made in Hong Kong. Those were by a company called Elcap.
  5. Roklan was working on Firefox for the 2600 and 8-bit, so that might be it.
  6. Midnight Mutants was originally a Sunsoft game. http://www.vgarc.org/vgarc-originals/interview-with-richard-robbins-sunsoft/
  7. Did Hellesen program the Atari 8-bit version of Gyruss? Various sites credit him with the C64 version.

    "Exus" Strategy

    Page 39 of the PDF, not page 39 of the book.

  11. Saw an Atari VCS lot at a rummage sale. $250 for everything, but this stuff was in immaculate condition. I've never seen VCS/2600 stuff in this shape. There was a box of games and controllers (including keyboard and paddles), many still in their boxes. The loose ones had no Actiplaquing. The system was in a carrying case I'd never seen before. Turns out it's an Atari Club exclusive and goes for decent money on eBay.

    Here's an article about Telesys. Don Ruffcorn is referred to as a "freelance programmer." http://azcentral.newspapers.com/newspage/121667755/

    Steve Wyatt was Director of Operations at Telesys and was also with Atari and Activision. From his 2002 CGE keynote: "It was a lot of fun even being from the Activision programmers to being with all these independent programmers that were coming into Telesys all the time with games." (7:53)
  14. Bought Lode Runner: The Legend Continues for PC, still sealed. Unfortunately, I did not realize until later it's on floppy disk. Also found a PSP UMD dual pack, sealed: Syphon Filter: Logan's Shadow and Killzone: Liberation.
  15. Can you actually get anything in there with the power off? I bought a Wii last month, and I think it's scratching discs (not major scratches, but still).
