David A Dentt Interview
(Ninja Golf and Klax Programmer)

by John K Harvey

By the way, kids... you know you are a programming pimp when you sign your name in gold ink on the boxes. That's when you know. Anyways, this is an old interview between my old collaborator John K Harvey and David A Dentt, the guy that programmed Ninja Golf and Klax for the Atari 7800. This interview surfaced when Lee Krueger of ResQsoft released Klax, a completed but unreleased prototype for sale through his website in the early double aughts. I've been searching for the image of Dentt's autograph and the interview for months and found both on the same day... so bully for me (thanks to John for finding the interview). This is a great little Q & A and exposes some secrets and facts about Klax and Ninja Golf that you should find interesting.
