David Crane to recieve Videogame Pioneer award

This is not the first time David Crane has received a pioneer award, and if there’s any justice, it won’t be the last either. The Academy of Interactive Arts and Sciences will be honouring David Crane, the man behind the first and classic (in every sense) Ghostbusters video game, as a video game pioneer as part of their 13th Annual Interactive Achievements awards.

Wired magazine sat down to talk to him about his legacy of gaming – no specifics about Ghostbusters, but still an excellent read. It has to be remembered that the original Ghostbusters game was created, start to finish, by Crane alone (as all Atari games were created, usually, by one developer in those days.)
