Over on ihobo today, my interview with the legendary 8-bit programmer-game designer, Steve Crow! Here's an extract:
CB: Do you miss the way the videogames were back in its 'infancy'?
SC: Looking back I consider myself so fortunate to be in the industry at a time when one individual could be the author of an entire game. By the late 80's games started to be created by small teams of people as the programming, music and graphics became more complex and people began specializing in particular aspects of game creation. Since the mid 80's I have been involved in many very successful games so I don't consider the mid 80's as a 'golden' era of my career but it was a very exciting time to be involved in video games!
