This email "interview" (from July 11, 2001) is with Brett Bilbrey, from Spectre Systems (programmer of ICBM Attack and Treasure Cove cartridges).
I'm not sure why this was never posted. This is the kind of stuff I'm finding on my hard drive when I look through the files... ADAM - I was hoping to get in touch with Mike and Marion [of Spectre]. I would like to ask them about releasing BLAST DROIDS into the public domain as well as your two programs. I think that would be the last of the three (?) Esoterica, Inc cartridges. BRETT - Blast Droids was not a Spectre Systems creation. (At least I don't remember doing it... (sigh, getting old sucks). Esoterica was only the distributor of our cartridges. They distributed other peoples products as well. I don't remember Blast Droids, so I'm pretty sure it was someone else's. (I wrote a lot of programs around that time, and if Esoterica took one and made a cartridge out of it - giving it a new name - then they did it without our permission.) ADAM - Not only do I want to ask them that, but I would like to hear about how they set up the company and more. Let me know if I can contact them (email preferred). BRETT - I can give you a little background on that. But Dana joined the Air Force and left our group... Brett - engineer/programmer (Bally/TRS-80/etc...) Dana - artist/programmer (TRS-80) Marion - musician/programmer (TRS-80) Mike - manager We started writing programs for the TRS-80. BRETT - You should also contact George Moses, one of the 'old gang' of the Bally Bugs... George helped rewrite the Bally Basic manual, and when I wrote the three voice music program, George wrote music for it... END OF ARTICLE

Spectre Systems was made up of Brett Bilbrey, Mike Toth and Marion Nelepa.
Brett did the game programming. ICBM ATTACK was an experiment to see if Brett 'could' create a cartridge. He did it in a few months during his free time in college so it did not take much money. Treasure Cove took a bit more work... Brett remembers not leaving Marion's house for days at a time... ICBM Attack Concept Art Concept art for the game ICBM Attack. Game Ideas by Brett Bilbrey Game ideas by Brett Bilbrey. ICBM Attack Cassette Description by Brett Bilbrey - June 22, 1982 This is the concept of ICBM Attack as originally envisioned by Brett. This game was eventually released on cartridge. ICBM Attack Notes ICBM Attack Programming Notes Twelve pages of handwritten programming notes by Brett Bilbrey about ICBM Attack. In the notes, the game is called "Missile Command." This source was supplied by Brett Bilbrey, the programmer of the cartridge. This is not the final version, as that version of the source does not seem to be available (but could be created using the cartridge ROM image and this source code).
