King of Chicago Box Pix

When you work on computer games you get to do fun, weird stuff. In the fall of 1986 I was working insanely hard on my game The King of Chicago. My publisher Cinemaware needed a designer photo for the box and since I was doing a gangster game I decided to dress the part by hitting up second hand clothes stores.

My buddy Sam Ross is a fine photographer so I asked him to take the pix. We found a grungy alley behind an abandoned train station which looked Chicagoish enough. We had a blast posing and clicking and got some decent pix.

Recently I’ve been acting as hitman for itsu jitsu so I thought I’d post these pix to strike fear in anyone who is thinking of crossing Jason Kavanagh.

The King of Chicago sold over 50,000 copies in 86-88. The Amiga version sold better than the Mac, Atari, or PC versions because of Rob Landeros’s amazing gangsters.

I’m proud of King of Chicago.
