Wisconsin: TSR Games


As if collecting, teaching and writing SF stories were not enough, Salive also embarked on gaming. His working knowledge of computers and programming led him into creating an underwater diving game, which meant writing a graphics programme for the background scenes. The first image he ‘painted’ himself, using Paintpic, was a colourful rocket pointing out into space. No doubt to get inspiration, Salive looked to various sources such as John Snider’s Star Probe. The Game of Adventure and Exploration in Space, with the necessary space map and icons.
