Come by The Comic Bug to play classic INTELLIVISION games from the 70’s and 80’s with the original programmers! Keith Robinson, Stephen Roney, David Warhol, John Sohl, Mark Kennedy, Bob Newstadt and Michelle Mock (otherwise known as the BLUE SKY RANGERS) will be answering questions, competing with attendees and sharing great stories about the first video game system that tried to tackle ATARI!
The Intellivision console was the main competitor of the Atari home console in the early 1980s. The games created for the console pioneered many of the themes still popular today. Intellivision Lives! is nostalgia, history and a collection of casual games that are still addictive and fun after thirty years!
Dubbed “The Blue Sky Rangers” in a 1982 TV Guide profile, the Mattel Electronics game designers worked together for about three years creating Intellivision games. Today, 30 years later, they are still friends who regularly get together for parties, reunions, and to support each other on new gaming projects.
