Or for that matter Jim Gregory at Atari? I'm tracking these two gentlemen for HG101, in connection with something that will prove very, very exciting for readers. Read on to find out more...
Unfortunately I've hit an impasse, so am turning to the readership to ask - do you know these gentlemen? Do you work with them or know how to contact them? Do you know where they are now? Both of them seem to have dropped off the radar entirely.
I can't explain precisely why, just yet, because it's a bit like the Orz, or maybe Cthulu. Once the world knows of its existence, potentially bad things could happen. But trust me when I say it'll be worth it. Unless I find nothing, in which case I'll explain why and it'll be open season for everyone.
Larry Siegel was at Black Pearl Software and then THQ up until around the millennium. According to Mobygames he's credited on the following:
* Rugrats: Scavenger Hunt (1999), THQ Inc.
* Bass Masters Classic (1995), Black Pearl Software
* FIFA Soccer 96 (1995), THQ Inc.
* Madden NFL '95 (1994), THQ Inc.
* The Ren & Stimpy Show: Time Warp (1994), THQ Inc.
He also appears to have a profile on LinkedIn, but attempts to contact him via the site haven't had any results.
Jim Gregory was at Handmade Software (Swinton, UK) for a time, making Atari games. Notably several Lynx titles and Kasumi Ninja for the Jaguar. According to Mobygame he's credited on the following:
* Battlezone 2000 (1995), Atari Corporation
* Kasumi Ninja (1994), Atari Corporation
* Awesome Golf (1991), Atari Corporation
The original companies these gentlemen worked at no longer exist, and despite managing to contact their former colleagues, no one as yet knows how to contact the two.
If you have any information pertaining to their whereabouts, post in the comments or email HG101 via the contacts on our front page.
