The 1980s were a very good time for gaming. Could you imagine if you opened your copy of Grand Theft Auto IV and it had a job application to work at Rockstar in it? That is in effect what Mastertronic did with their games. They included a recruiting paper in each game with their futuristic looking mascot Mistertronic striking a very Uncle Sam-like pose.
All you need to do is send them a copy of your game with code and instructions. I wonder how many people sent code to their “Head of Software”? Which incidentally is what I now choose to call myself.
