Chris James, Thorn EMI
 
Chris James worked at Thorn EMI, where he was a programmer and later a project manager. Later he founded James Software, which specialized in game conversions to various computer platforms. His long list of Atari game credits includes Darts, Tank Commander, and several jigsaw puzzle games such as European Scene Jigsaw Puzzles and Hickory Dickory Dock.
 
He is also the husband of Hanan Samara, whom I interviewed previously, and whom you can hear providing color commentary in the background from time to time.
 
This interview took place on November 13, 2017.
 
Teaser quote: "We didn't feel like we were sort of on a frontier as such, but we were, I guess — and breaking ground."
