Ross Sillifant brings us yet another great interview this month with the amazing Chris Shrigley, co-founder of Eurocom. During their discussion we learn about what it was like to be involved with the creation of games for the SEGA-CD, especially the fantastic title Batman Returns, among other interesting topics.
Ross Sillifant: I’d like to start with your time at Gremlin, something I know you’ve already talked about in depth on previous interviews, but i’m wondering if you can shed any light on the ATARI support Gremlin gave (I went from an Atari 800XL to a C64, bought and loved Bounder, Future Knight, Footballer of the year etc..)
Chris Shrigley: I only worked on one Atari game and that was the Atari 400/800/XL/XE conversion of Footballer of The Year. A lot of my code was used as the Atari was 6502 also. Simon Hulbert did most of the typing and hardware stuff, but I did spend a fair few hours sitting, figuring stuff out too. That really was my first and last involvement with anything Atari at Gremlin.
