Steve Robinson: Diggerbonk and Bean Machine
Steve Robinson is the author of two games that were published by Atari Program Exchange: Diggerbonk and Bean Machine. Diggerbonk was first available in the spring 1983 APX catalog. Bean Machine first appeared in the summer 1983 APX catalog, where it won third prize in the Entertainment category.
This interview took place on June 13, 2016. A video version of this interview is available, check the show notes at AtariPodcast.com for the link.
In it, we talk about Jack Palevich whom I previously interviewed.
Teaser quote: "When they first published the game, they took the wrong version. I sent them the wrong version, not knowing that it had a bug in it. And — I got third prize anyway."
