Games developers who contributed type-in programs to magazines

(1/3) > >>

CrookieMonster:
I've been thinking about type-in listings and whether anyone who contributed them went on to have flourishing careers in the games industry.


I know Philip and Andrew Oliver had a listing publishing in C&VG and David Perry began his career writing code for books.


Does anyone else spring to mind?

Gryzor:
Interesting question indeed, but why limit it to the games industry? I'm pretty sure tons of people went on to become successful developers in other areas.

...then again I realise that "so-and-so went on to be lead producer for MacSheets Pro 2002" is not as interesting :D

CrookieMonster:
haha. Very true.

eto:
Different platforms, mostly C64 and Amiga, but unfortunately never Amstrad afaik:

Chris Huelsbeck, probably most famous for the Turrican soundtrack, went on to become a famous and professional games musician.

All started with a music contest in the German magazine "64er"

Indeed....

So, I had a type-in in 1988 and ended up as a Software developer for some time. Well... BOOOOOORIIIING
