Eugene Jarvis - Atari - Podcast Interview - Creator of Defender, Robotron & Stargate

 

This is probably my favourite interview to date as I have a long and in-depth chat with arcade, Atari and Williams legend Eugene Jarvis.

 

Eugene shares some great stories of working at Atari, what it was like working with Nolan Bushnell, creating Defender and Stargate. He also talks what inspired him to make Robotron: 2084, Smash T.V. and loads more. He also looks at his current work at Raw Thrills where he keeping arcades alive with amazing innovations.  He also talks about his views on the Jeff Minter's Defender 2000 on the Jaguar.

 

The 1 hour 30 mins chat with Arcade Attack is honest, funny and really insightful. I would be so honoured if you checked it out and shared your feedback. The links to various platforms are listed below:

I'd like to know what he thought about Defender 2000 without having to listen to a 90 minute audio feed. Or click on a video. Or do anything other than read text on this forum.

I would too. I like reading such things on this forum, which is why I come here in the first place. What I don't come here for is for seeing constant shilling for other websites or Youtube channels.

Go to 20:34 for Defender 2000.  It is only about 2 and half minutes long and most of that is talking about the Beatles.

I understand. Podcasts are not for everyone. I just shared it as I thought it was a nice interview. Especially the Atari talk. I like to spread the word of Atari and Jag and I hope people can see that I mean well.

Keep cool. There are people (like me) who appreciate pointers to Atari content on websites they either don't know or don't frequent regularly and it is rather easy to ignore such posts if one is not inclined to read anything but AtariAge. If you like reading about such things on AtariAge exclusively, you'll have to wait for someone to volunteer to describe or even transcribe them here, I am afraid, as I don't know of any commercial venture providing such service.

That was one very enjoyable interview, with lots of revealing insights and entertaining anecdotes. Eugene came over as a very straight, smart and passionate game creator and player. Thanks for sharing this excellent interview!

EDIT: Nevermind, I'm just being a grump.
