This articles covers the New York Regional contest and its winner, Frank Tetra. Tetra would go on to win 2nd place and a computer. The big winner would be video game industry pioneer, Rebecca Heineman.
Heineman programmed the cult classic graphic adventure games Tass Times in Tonetown and The Bard’s Tale III: Thief of Fate. She also programmed the Macintosh, Super NES and Apple IIGS ports of Another World, as well as some other lesser-known games, such as Mindshadow, Borrowed Time, Battle Chess, and The Tracer Sanction.
I remember these contests and how exciting it felt to see the gaming culture catch on in the mainstream media.
