Colin Hume, Computer War
 
Colin Hume worked at Thorn EMI for about a year, where he programmed one game for the Atari 8-bit computers: Computer War. Computer War was based on the 1983 movie War Games.
 
Thomas Cherryhomes joined us to ask Colin some questions of his own.
 
This interview took place on April 12, 2018.
 
"Of course it was so totally different. There was no specification, no one ever checked through your code. There was no documentation. There was no maintenance."
