TCW Podcast Episode 138 - Dave Nutting Associates

 

This is our second half looking at Dave Nutting and specifically Dave Nutting Associates.  We see how they are able change the industry by showing the viability of solid state Pinball.  Despite the setback of not being able to license the technology to Bally/Midway they pressed on with developing video games.  Specifically Gun Fight which had realistic, for the time, human analogs that could fire guns at each other. As they continued to show how well they were to Bally/Midway they ended up being bought out.  Unfortunately by the time of the crash Dave Nutting Associates ended up being a small player in a crowded industry and was shut down in 1984.
