Here you see the original Montezuma’s Revenge screen from the game as it was originally produced in 1983 by my good friend, Rob Jaeger. If you look closely you can see my credit for concept, which was a very thoughtful inclusion.
Even though that little line was removed when the game was acquired by Parker Bros., I am forever linked to the game.
Yes it is an early Atari era game, but it has its devotees and the title is not an ossified relic. It has been ported to Android and iPhone platforms and was even a game of greater challenge for Google’s DeepMind AI.
Recently, Rob acquired for his personal enjoyment, quite a dandy cabinet, through which one can play a multitude of games.
I will be creating scenes which will be applied via vinyl appliqué to the sides, the controller top, the top logo area and possibly around the monitor itself.
I have been posting sketch artwork up to the game’s Facebook page along with my posts here.
When this all gets completed I will surely take photos once the cabinet artwork has been applied.
This is exciting, transforming the stock cabinet with attractive appliqués.

I will post the final artwork before printing and later, pictures of the overlays applied to the cabinet.
Below is one of the recent Pedro sketches.
For years I endeavored to design the whole deal, ground up. Yet — real snappy customization and the time it demands of me — not this time. Down the line perhaps I will pay someone to do something entirely UI dazzling, but for now, simplicity serves. I don’t want anything taking away from either my ability to truly create new things or their ability to be presented without distraction.
A few, limited features shown in other versions of the site will return — but these days it is all about vibrant new material.
Importantly — an online store has been added. In the past people would contact me various ways, and commissions can still be arranged, but items shall become more available as they are created and promoted.
