Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Bruce E. Carver (May 4, 1948 - December 28, 2005) was a co-founder of video game developer Access Software (later re-named Indie Built) in 1982. It began by producing titles for 8-bit computers, including Beach-Head, Beach Head II: The Dictator Strikes Back, Raid over Moscow and many others. With his brother, Roger Carver, he created the influential Links golf game series, beginning with Leader Board and World Class Leader Board. The Links games defined golf video games and simulations. In 1997, PC Gamer named him one of the "Gods of Gaming." Access was sold to Microsoft in 1999 and, as a result, several people were let go. Carver paid generous golden parachutes to several of these people out of his own pocket.show more
