Thanks to GameSpot for its interview with seminal game designer Eugene Jarvis
, best known "for arcade titles from the eighties... including Defender, Robotron, NARC, [and] Smash T.V."
, discussing his attempts to revitalize the arcade market. The article mentions his recently released, terrorism-themed Target: Terror
lightgun arcade shooter, apparently "the number two most profitable arcade game in its first month in general release"
- Jarvis comments of the content: "So Target: Terror is this extreme paranoia, but gosh, it could be real. We take it to the extreme--they're taking over the Golden Gate Bridge and you have to retake that."
It's also revealed of Jarvis that "This Fall, his three-year-old, self-funded company, Raw Thrills, will debut its second arcade title, The Fast and the Furious, a driving title based on the Universal Pictures film of the same name."
