Letter to Vid Kidz, 1982
The images below are a letter I sent to video game designers Larry Demar and Eugene Jarvis (aka Vid Kidz) back in 1982. It was written in WordStar on a homemade Heath H-89 computer running CP/M, and printed on an Epson MX-80 dot-matrix printer.
Thanks to Larry for being so well organized and having a scanned copy of this in his archives. It was a fun blast from the past to see it, a reminder of a time in my life when video games weren’t just a thing, they were the only thing.
A little over a month after I sent this letter, I was living in Chicago, working at JoyStik Magazine. A lot happened in that month!
