Larry Reed, Childware

Larry Reed was a programmer for Childware, where he worked on two educational games for the Atari 8-bit computers: Word Flyer and D-Bug, both of which were published by Electronic Arts.

This interview took place December 6, 2015.

Teaser quotes:

"I'll tell you, working with FORTH on the Atari was great until we exceeded the memory capability of the Atari, and then it was a royal pain in the ass."

"'Anybody who thinks there is a distinction between education and entertainment doesn't know the first thing about either.'"
