Updated the programmers list with Graham Thomasson.
Have yet to update the list with the latest new releases.

I'm playing Blobbers and noticed when the game starts there is a quick animation, a credit to GST video, and an ACE in the lower right. Does anyone else think this might be Andy Eltis, as that would coincide with another GST video game, Norseman?

EDIT: It appears that is the case. I looked for gameplay of it on youtube and see a post by a Thomas Eltis who says "My dad made this" in the comments

I see. I mentioned it since it's not credited on the list of programmers, only to GST.

A couple of additions
60   Trans American Rally  Intron AB  Göran Öhman
62   Clay Pigeon              Intron AB  Göran Öhman
981502   Frogger             Intron AB  Göran Öhman (most parts)

I worked for a small Stockholm based company Intron AB, we made games for Philips and Parker Brothers. There are Videopac games made by other employees of Intron, but I do not remember which now (this was 30 years ago).
Some additions where made by Philips (e.g the G7400 background of Clay Pigeon)
Peter Inser was the owner of Intron, and made some games but not Frogger.

Welcome to the Videopac forum and thank you very much for this interesting information!
Trans American Rally is a very impressive game compared to many other Videopac titles. That must have cost a lot of programming time.
Do you have any idea how many Videopac games your company has made?

Welcome to the forum gooh  Cheesy

I have a feeling there will be a few questions coming your way.

So from me, do you have anything left in your hands from back in the day? Paperwork? Code? Artwork? Especially any draft stuff. I for one would love to see some of that stuff if you still have it.

Welcome to the Videopac forum!
You have the honour of being the developer of one of the Videopac Holy Grails. Took me three years to finally get a copy of Trans American Rally.

Any unreleased games hanging around at your place?

That would be really nice :-)

Welcome to the forum gooh  Cheesy

For sure  Cheesy
Welcome gooh. Naturally we expect you can bring other memories to us, like who was the Vpac team on Intron AB, who made what? I really like to know if you have some memories about other games planned to be released, other ideas you had etc. Concerning about Clay Pigeon, I really like this game, I think it´s the most humorous game in Vpac library, something like a cartoon inpired humor. Here (Brazil), we had the privelegy to see this release, do you know why it was not released in other coutries? What your participation on the game, idea, game, both?
