  1. Thanks Kevin. I've been binging on your interviews and you manage to locate all kinds of unreleased software, and I'm concerned that it'll fall by the wayside. But it looks like you're on top of it so I'm excited to see what gets released when it's ready!
  2. Kevin - did Robert Jaeger ever send you his disks? The skiing game sounds interesting.
  3. Thanks so much for doing this interview, Kevin! I really appreciate hearing the stories behind Timeslip and Jet Boot Jack. Jon - if you read this, I can assure you that your source code to your games will much enjoyed by the Atari community. Regardless, as you have bolstered your original code with expanded comments it would be wonderful to see the documents uploaded to here and/or archive.org. Finally, I cant wait to see what you do with updated versions of Timeslip and Jetbook Jack. Thanks for exploring these titles again!
  4. Jet Boot Jack was one of my favorite Atari games, as was Timeslip! The gameplay, audio, and visuals on both are great! By the way, did Jet Boot Jack have an ending?
  5. An updated Jet Boot Jack would be incredible, especially if youre the original author!
  6. Look at modern game design books. Or level design articles at gamasutra.com. Or videos on the GDC vault: http://www.gdcvault.com/play/1023282/Empowering-the-Player-Level-Design
  7. Sorry, Steve. Barbarian is what I meant. Combination of late night and advancing years. Still, looking forward to seeing what you unearth when you go through all your stuff.
  8. Steve - are you able to release the Russell Knight version of Pysnosis or the demo of TRAP?
  9. I wasn't sure whether to post this or not, as this is the 8-bit forum, so moderators, please move it it's not relevant. A couple of years ago I got into email conversation with Ivan Mackintosh (if you haven't played any of his and Richard Munns' games, try Cavernia and Black Lamp), and we decided to collaborate on a game for the iPhone. Unfortunately, due to work commitments, we had to cancel the game. Here's a link to a post on my blog with a little more information, screenshots, and videos: http://avramdesert.blogspot.com/2015/09/rooster-wanted.html
  10. Slightly off topic, but here's a short clip about Tim Huntington and the music for his first two games:
  11. Thanks everyone for all the game ideas. Looking forward to exploring these.
  12. Regarding non-Atari games, here's a Batman game I'd like to include in my talk - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Batman_%281986_video_game%29
  13. I'm putting together a talk on how comic book super heroes (Spiderman, Superman, Batman, etc.) have been represented in 8-bit games. So far I have the following: Superman III - http://www.atarimania.com/game-atari-400-800-xl-xe-superman-the-game_6795.html And Adventure International's games: Spiderman - http://www.atarimania.com/game-atari-400-800-xl-xe-questprobe-2-spider-man_4236.html The Hulk - http://www.atarimania.com/game-atari-400-800-xl-xe-questprobe-1-the-hulk_6734.html What else am I missing on the Atari 8-bit? And if anyone's familiar with the ZX Spectrum, Apple II, and C64, would you mind suggesting titles I can look at? Thanks, Avram
  14. Would it be possible to interview Steve Coleman? He created some excellent games on the Atari.
  15. Gotcha. I remember New Atari User had a feature on Zeppelin Games' making of Blinky's Scary School but that's all I've ever come across with that company.
