Atari Climber Protoype Strange story

Recommended Posts

 :?  :? Yesterday I heard the story about the first prototype of a Atari Climber on 2600 (VCS) Apparently in the first version of this game Atari did not like the face of a Character who was allegedly deformed. Atari rejected the prototype and said that the main character looks like a sick child and the lines that disturb him are people who want to beat him. Apparently after a few years someone found the only one cartidge with this game but then suddenly the photo and trace of that person was lost. I was looking for something about this strange story but I found nothing, is it fake? or indeed something like that happened? :oops:  :oops: 
I am sorry if my spelling is not perfect.

To my knowledge, Crazy Climber was first started by Alex Leavens and (when he left) was then finished by Joe Gaucher.

If that is what you mean.

This story is about another game called Climber which was supposed to be completed in 1981. When Atari was supposed to discard the completed project. Supposedly someone found the only copy of this game in the trash and disappeared. Could this not be the real story?

I honestly don't know anything about this story.

If you have more info about this, let me know.

Should I assume this is NOT about Dennis Debro's game "Climber 5" which became "Atari Climber" on the Flashback systems?

Sounds made up to me.  I've never heard that story.
