World 1-1 released, starring me.

Well, it’s official. The new documentary about the rise and fall of Atari in the eighties is now available here:

Thanks to Daryl and Jeanette for making a great movie.  I’m not really starring in the movie, but you’ll see me making a few comments here and there.  If you follow the link you can see the trailer for free, and buy or rent the movie for just a few quarters.

Back in the eighties I played a whole lot of arcade games, and averaged $10.00 in quarters a day.  When I joined Atari in 1982, even though I had access to tons of free games at work, I continued going to the real arcades and playing the games the way they were meant to be played:  with my hard-earned cash.

The world sure has changed since then…
