We already know about GCC and their start as a company that made slightly-shady “enhancement kits”, but there’s more to the story than that, including the fact that they’re still making some money off the deal. [LINK]
How has it changed my life? It introduced me to a bunch of smart guys and from a career point of view. We made a bunch of money, and it was great. I bought a house basically from the proceeds of Ms. Pac-Man that I still live in.
In terms of Ms. Pac-Man itself, until recently, it really wasn’t a active part of my life. It was something we did in less than a year, and it was fun, but I didn’t walk around with a sign saying ‘I made Ms. Pac-Man.’
Neat article, and I’m a sucker for the “written oral history” format.
