Intellivision Lives! Version 1.1
Produced & Designed by Keith Robinson

|In 1980, the world's largest toy company put its future into the hands of some inexperienced fresh-from-college kids: the programmers of the company's Intellivision video game system.
In a three-year roller-coaster ride, Intellivision soared into three million homes and made tens of millions of dollars - then crashed and almost bankrupted the company.
Now hear the original Intellivision designers tell the often-funny, often-bizarre story of the 1980s video game frenzy: constant deadlines, all-night programming marathons, marketing battles, corporate wars, practical jokes and working in what one described as a giant dorm room.
Then play the original games, in all their simple, blocky-graphics glory. You'll discover what the frenzy was all about: these games are as fun and addictive today as they were nearly 20 years ago!
