S3:E15: Steve Golson Interview Part 1: How GCC Atari’s Secret Weapon
In this episode we talk to Steve Golson, hacker/engineer for GCC and creator of the hardware that converted Pac-Man into Ms. Pac Man. In part one of a two part conversation, we chat about the era of coin-op “speed-up kits” and how GCC's revolutionary ideas for converting "Missile Command " into “Super Missile Attack” led to the upstart company becoming Atari’s Secret Weapon.
Don't miss this one! Golson is an amazing story teller!
