The Electronic Game
Proceedings of the
First Annual Gametronics Conference
January 18-20, 1977
A billion dollar industry is in the making. Thanks to advances in integrated-circuit technologies, designers are contemplating game systems of startling sophistication and unprecedented player involvement.
The era of the electronic game is at hand. Its scope is limited by the creativity of the mind, not the ability of solid-state electronics. This is a time for resourcefulness, planning, courage and movement.
To help designers meet the challenges of the electronic games industry, a special conference was organized by Electronic Engineering Times. Called “Gametronics,” this conference brings together active and prospective participants in game design and production with leading suppliers of components for electronic games.
