On this special episode of the Video Game Newsroom Time Machine,
Karl has a chat with industry legend Michael Katz. They talk
about his time at Mattel, the inner workings of product development
in the toy business, how he developed the concept of the electronic
LED game there, then went on to lambast that very product line at
his next position at Coleco and we end the interview when he takes
the reigns at computer game company Epyx.
And because we didn't even get to his game changing stint at Sega or time working at Tramiel's Atari, there will be a follow up in the weeks ahead. Enjoy this candid, and very fun interview.
