Let's say you could go back in time, and you were the head of Atari....

 

If you give developers credit and a percentage of profits for their games, plus a little bio page like Activision did....would that have held off the idea of third party developers from ever happening? 

 

It may have delayed it and it's very likely Activision would have never existed and possibly also meant that games like Pitfall and Kaboom never got made.

 

That's some serious Back to the Future thinking right there.  :Nolan_Bushnell:  :bttf_delorean:  :bttf_hoverboard:  :Nolan_Bushnell:

I used Scott Stilphen's map to beat Fathom back in '02, 

 

I created that map for the first issue of Jeff Adkins's newsletter, Classic Systems and Games Monthly, way back in October 1991, using my crappy Okimate 10 printer and Atari Artist (attached). 

 

Here's more notes about the game:

I interviewed Rob Fulop years ago, and he mentioned Fathom wasn't a particular favorite of his:

Not a true Easter Egg, but here's the Rampage glitch.
