Roger Hector, Atari’s Advanced Products Group

Roger Hector started at Atari back in 1976.  As a creative designer, he was originally hired by Pete Takaishi (Industrial Design Manager), before working in the Art Department, and then finally for Al Alcorn.  He managed Atari's Advanced Products Group and helped create the Cosmos system before leaving to co-found Videa with Howard Delman and Ed Rotberg.

This interview took place September 17, 2015.

Teaser Quotes:

  • “There’s a LOT of interesting stories!”
  • “There was an old saying around there, somewhat cynical, but they said ‘hey, we could make money faster than we can piss it away’”
  • “I think Atari was a place that deserved your fandom.”
