We look at the life and story of Eugene Jarvis.  Unique in the industry of being one of, if not the only designers to have lived through and continues to work in the lifespan of the video game arcade industry.  Starting off with Pinball and working at Atari for only two weeks.  Eugene came to be influential in many popular pinball, and arcade games.  Always looking for that next thrill he continues his quest to this day with his company Raw Thrills developing some of the few arcade titles still being put out there.
