Eugene Jarvis Honored at the Robotron: 2084 Celebration Event

This past weekend the Star Worlds Arcade in DeKalb, IL held a special event to celebrate 30 years of Robotron 2084 (you might recall that a lot of big names are turning 30 this year) and the highlight of the event was the man who designed the game appearing to play it, Eugene Jarvis. In addition to playing the game and hanging out with players, Mr. Jarvis received an award from Walter Day of Twin Galaxies, honoring his lifetime of achievement in video games. Since Robotron, Jarvis has been behind many other games (Defender, Blaster, NARC, Smash TV, Crusin USA, among many others) and still works in the video arcade industry today, particularly with his company made to replace Midway’s exit from the amusement industry, Raw Thrills. It’s certainly an award he has earned and deserves. Click for the Full Story
