Once Upon Atari (Scott West)
Friday, 18 December 2020

This book, with the subtitle "How I made history by killing an industry" offers an intimate view into the dramatic rise and fall of the early video game industry, and how it shaped the life of one of its key players. Howard Scott Warshaw gives a detailed look behind the scenes of the early days of video games, with particular attention to the causative factors leading up to the video game crash of the early 1980s. It is also the journey of one industry pioneer, and how his experience creating interactive entertainment reverberates throughout his life.
