Art Walsh, Dynacomp and Artworx
Art Walsh was co-founder of Dynacomp, an early software publisher that created software for many platforms, including many educational and game titles for the Atari 8-bit computer. He later founder Artworx, a software publisher that produced titles including Bridge, Cranston Manor Adventure, Gwendolyn, Hazard Run, Hotel Alien, and Strip Poker.
This interview took place on May 26, 2017. In it we discuss Jerry White, whom I previously interviewed.
Teaser quote: "Why is bridge selling when most card players play poker? ... Doug McFarland ... blurted out ...  'I bet if we had strip poker instead of poker, it would sell. ... We all kind of said 'That's it!'"
