Hi there! Thank you all so much for helping me get to episode 100. In this Intellivisionaries-sized episode, I am celebrating by discussing one of my favorite Atari 2600 games, Pitfall by Activision. Extra giant super special humongous thanks to Willie! from the Colecovisions podcast for surprising me with an interview with the awesome David Crane! Thank you so much Willie, and thanks much also to David Crane for talking with us, it was my honor.

In two weeks I will be discussing Shootin' Gallery and Riddle of the Sphinx by Imagic. I will also endeavor to fix up my list because it needs fixing, so in the next episode I will announce more games that are coming up. If you have any feedback for these games, or any games I've already covered, please send them to me at 2600gamebygame@comcast.net. From the bottom of my heart, thank you so much for listening. You all have made this such a wonderful experience and I am excited to cover many more games!
