                    1994 CAIN Jaguar Letter Writing Campaign

                             Organized by: Len Stys

                       E-mail: aa399@cleveland.freenet.edu

                           ***** Sept. 15th, 1994 *****

The Jaguar 64-bit interactive multimedia system is the most advanced 
video game system ever created.  If you are reading this, you either own
a Jaguar or plan on buying one as soon as some more games become
available for it.  You are also interested in finding out what you can do
to get your favorite games made for the Jaguar.  I am glad to see that
you are interested and if everyone participates in this campaign, we will
_all_ be seeing our favorite games made for the Jaguar.

This is the situation.  The people at Atari Corp. are doing everything
that they can do to make sure the Jaguar is a success.  But because the
Jaguar is a new product and it is competing against systems like 3DO, SNES,
Genesis, and future systems like Saturn and the Nintendo 64-bit, big name
companies are wary about investing in the Jaguar.  They are also not sure
if there is a demand for their games on the Jaguar.

Yes, Atari Corp. has 150+ companies developing for the Jaguar, but most
of these companies are one or two man operations.  And a lot of these
people are writing games for the Jaguar as an extra to their full-time job.
It could very well take these small companies a year or more just to
finish one game.  There is also no guarantee that these companies will
even release the game they are working on and if they do release it, the
game may not be a hit.

We are at a point where Atari Corp. is waiting for big name companies to
decide to develop for the Jaguar.  At the same time, these companies are
waiting to see a demand for their games on the Jaguar.  So when will these
companies realize that there is a demand for their games on the Jaguar?
One of two things must happen.  Atari Corp. must sell 1 million or more
Jaguar units before these companies will start making their games for the
Jaguar.  Since Atari Corp. will not be able to sell 1 million Jaguars
without these companies selling their games for the Jaguar, the second
thing must happen.  This is for companies to receive hundreds of letters
from Jaguar owners that want their games for the Jaguar.

If these big name companies are not convinced to make their games for the
Jaguar in the next few months, they will sign to develop for Sega's 32X,
Sega's Saturn, or Nintendo's new 64-bit.  If this happens, the Jaguar will
never get the games you want.

Will writing letters work?  Yes, it will work.  I've learned from my
prior business experience that letter writing does work.  There are many
ways of determining a demand for a product, but nothing is more
convincing to a company president than hundreds of letters from consumers
that are asking for their product.  Letters are concrete proof that
demand exists.

If you want to see big name companies and big name titles for the Jaguar,
join in with this letter writing campaign.  I'm participating in this
campaign for three reasons:  1) I really think that my letter will make
a difference in the decision making process at these companies.
2) I don't want to think "what if" in the future.  I want to do my part
now so I can say that I did my share.  3) It is my duty as a consumer to
let companies know how they can satisfy my needs (or wants).

I hope you will see a need to participate in this campaign as well.  And
don't think that someone else will write because if that person feels the
same way you do, nobody will write.  The Atari Community is small and this
campaign will require everyone to participate.  As soon as you are done
reading this supplement, print it up, and put it some place where you
won't forget about it.  Every month you will need to write the companies
listed or this campaign won't work.  Make it a priority in your already
busy life.

If you do not see the games you want for the Jaguar in this campaign,
do not be concerned!  When the following game companies start making games
for the Jaguar, the Jaguar will be on its way to becoming the most popular
home video game system in the world!  And when the Jaguar is on its way
to fame, your favorite games will be made for it!  But the campaign will
not work unless you participate.  And you cannot only write one game
company and not the others.  Each time one company signs to make Jaguar
games, it helps get another company to make Jaguar games.  Let's make this
writing campaign the most effective video game writing campaign that the
world has ever seen!

Ok, the companies we are concentrating on are companies that are familiar
with high quality graphics and sound in games.  Most of these companies
are well-known for PC games.

 ---------------------------------------------------------------------

First, we will first be writing Don Thomas, Jr. at Atari Corp. to let him
know that we are participating in these campaigns.  No, we aren't writing
to annoy him.  We are writing him so that Atari Corp. knows the magnitude
of this letter writing campaign.  If Atari Corp. knows that five-hundred
people will be writing Dynamix in October, the appropriate person at Atari
can contact this company on becoming a developer for the Jaguar during
this time.  Do not expect a letter from Don Thomas, Jr.  We are not
writing him for a response.  We are only writing him to inform him of what
we are doing.

Atari's mailing address is:

Atari Corp.
Attn: Don Thomas, Jr.
1196 Borregas Avenue
Sunnyvale, CA 94089

Place the letters: C.A.I.N. at the bottom left side of the envelope so that
Atari will know what it is for.

Please use the following form letter:

   Sunnyvale, CA 94089

   Dear Mr. Thomas,

   I am writing you to inform you that I will be writing the following
   game companies to encourage them to make games for the Jaguar. 
   I hope that my efforts will help Atari Corp. to sign these companies
   to make games for the Jaguar.

   The companies I will be writing are:

   September: WMS Industries, Capcom, Electronic Arts
   October: Sierra On-Line, Dynamix, LucasArts, NovaLogic
   November: Spectrum Holobyte, Psygnosis, Origin
   December: QQP, Broderbund, Konami

   Thank you for reading my letter and for recording the number of
   people writing these companies.

   Sincerely, 

   (sign your name)

  >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> id Software <<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<
  ----------------------------------------------------------------------

The letter to id Software should thank the company for producing
Wolfenstein 3-D for the Jaguar, encourage them to make Jaguar DOOM the
best that they can make it, and to encourage the company to make
QUAKE for the Jaguar.

id Software's e-mailing address:

Jay Wilbur, CEO
id Software
Town East Tower
18601 LBJ Freeway
Suite 615
Mesquite, Texas 75150

The form letter to Atari Corp. is the only form letter that will be used
in this campaign.  This is because companies do not take form letters as
seriously as those that are originally written.

The following is a list of things which you may want to say in your
letter to id Software:

Dear Mr. Wilbur,

   1) How much you enjoy Jaguar Wolfenstein 3-D.
   2) How much you like id Software.
   3) Thanks for making Wolfenstein 3-D for the Jaguar.
   4) How you would like to see the best graphics possible for DOOM
      on the Jaguar.
   5) How you would like to see four-player or more networking capability
      for Jaguar DOOM.
   6) How you are excited about Jaguar DOOM coming out this year.
   7) How you would like to see QUAKE made for the Jaguar.
   8) Thank you to Mr. Wilbur for reading your letter.

Another thing which you may want to include in this letter is concerning
the Jaguar resolutions.  id Software is using a lower resolution on the
Jaguar because they want to get the game as quick as Jaguar Wolfenstein.
I, personally, do not care if Jaguar DOOM is as fast as Wolfenstein.
One suggestion could be to make two modes (just like on the PC).  One mode
is for higher resolution and slower speed.  The other mode is for a lower
resolution, but higher speed.

  >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> WMS Industries Inc. <<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<
  ---------------------------------------------------------------------

As of September 14, 1994, Mortal Kombat II is not being produced for the
Jaguar.  And Acclaim has no plans to produce Mortal Kombat for the Jaguar.
But next year, WMS Industries will be able to release Mortal Kombat II for
any game system that the company wishes to release it for.  The time is
now to let WMS Industries  know that we want to see Mortal Kombat II and
Mortal Kombat III for the Jaguar.

Mortal Kombat II is by far the #1 most wanted game for the Jaguar
according to the Most Wanted Games for the Jaguar list by CAIN Newsletter.
If this game is released for the Jaguar, the Jaguar will be the most
wanted game system.

The mailing address of WMS Industries Inc. is:

Louis J. Nicastro, CEO
WMS Industries Inc.
3401 North California Ave.
Chicago, IL 60618-5889

OK. I don't think I have to remind you that you should write as neat and
as professional as possible to get the best results.  If you certify your
letter, you may even reach the president with your letter.

The following is a list of things in which you may want to say in your
letter to WMS Industries Inc.:

Dear Mr. Nicastro,

 1) How much you enjoy Mortal Kombat II
 2) How you like the games that WMS Industries makes.
 3) How you enjoy the Atari Jaguar.
 4) How you think the Atari Jaguar is the only game system that will do
    the game justice.
 5) How you will run out and get the game for the Jaguar as soon as it
    is released.
 6) How you would also like to see Jaguar be the first system to get
    Mortal Kombat III.
 7) Thank you to Mr. Nicastro for reading your letter and for considering
    making Moral Kombat II for the Jaguar.


  >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> Capcom USA INC. <<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<
  --------------------------------------------------------------------

Capcom is known for producing the Street Fighter II series of games.
The company is also known for producing games such as The Great Circus
Mystery Starring Mickey & Minnie Mouse, Demon's Crest, and Saturday
Night Slam Masters.  The company also does conversions of popular titles
such as Wizardry V and Eye of the Beholder.

Super Street Fighter II Turbo is second only to Mortal Kombat II on the
most wanted games for the Jaguar CAIN Newsletter listing.  If the game
existed for the Jaguar, it would no doubt sell a lot of Jaguars.  But
Capcom is not making Super Street Fighter for the Jaguar and no plans have
been announced to do so in the near future.

The strange thing is that Capcom is making Super Street Fighter II Turbo
for the 3DO platform.  The game will even have better graphics than that
on the SNES and Genesis.  But this only means that if Capcom will make a
version of SSFIIT for a much higher-priced system than there is a chance
that the company will be willing to make a Jaguar version.

The mailing address for Capcom USA Inc. is:

Scott Smith

The following is a list of things in which you may want to say in your
letter to Capcom USA Inc.:

Mr. Smith,

 1) How much you enjoy Street Fighter at the arcades.
 2) How you like the games that Capcom makes.
 3) How you enjoy the Atari Jaguar.
 4) How you think the Atari Jaguar is the only game system that will do
    the game justice.
 5) How you will run out and get Super Street Fighter II Turbo for the
    Jaguar as soon as it is released.
 6) Thank you to Mr. Smith for reading your letter and for considering
    making Super Street Fighter II Turbo for the Jaguar.

You may also want to FAX Capcom USA by the phone number: 408/774-3995.
But sending mail through the U.S. Postal Service may prove to be more
successful.

Electronic Arts is the publisher of some incredible games such as:
NBA Showdown, FIFA International Soccer, PGA European Tour Golf,
NHL Hockey '94, Wing Commander, Super Wing Commander, John Madden NFL
Football, Escape from Monster Manner, Twisted, Mario Andretti Racing,
MLBPA Baseball, and many more!  Electronic Arts also owns several other
software companies that they may give the OK to develop the Jaguar for if
they see there is a demand for Jaguar games.

Unfortunately, Electronic Arts is also a major backer of 3DO, a company
that is a big competitor of Atari Corp.  Electronic Arts is spending a lot
of time and money on making games for 3DO that it could be spending on
the Jaguar.

There is hope though!  Electronic Arts is a licensee.  This means that
the company has Jaguar developers units.  Electronic Arts' management
just has to give the OK to make games for the Jaguar.

The mailing address for Electronic Arts Inc. is:

Lawrence F. Probst III, President

San Mateo, CA 94404

The following is a list of things in which you may want to say in your
letter to Electronic Arts:

Dear Mr. Probst,

 1) How much you enjoy Electronic Arts games.
 2) How you have been buying Electronic Arts games for your computers
    since the company was started (if this is true).
 3) How much you enjoy your Atari Jaguar.
 4) How you feel that the Jaguar will be the video game system of the
    future due to its high-performance/low-price.
 5) The games that you would love to slee on the Jaguar (choose two or
    three Electronic Arts games--I'm choosing John Madden NFL Football!).
 6) How you believe Electronic Arts games will be unbelievable when
    using the graphics and sound capabilities of the Jaguar.
 7) How you will run out and buy Electronic Arts' games when they are
    produced for the Jaguar.
 8) Thank you to Mr. Probst for reading your letter and a thank you for
    considering producing games for the Jaguar.

Sierra On-Line is a company that is well-known for their role-playing
games such as their Space Quest and Police Quest series.  The company is
also known for their latest hits in the PC world: Gabriel Knight,
Aces Over Europe, and Leisure Suit Larry VI.  Sierra On-Line is planning
to release their new title, Phantasmagoria, very soon.

Sierra On-Line is definitely a company that needs to be developing for
the Jaguar if the Jaguar CD-ROM is to become used.  If Sierra On-Line
starts making games for the Jaguar CD-ROM, several other companies will
make games for it as well.

The mailing address for Sierra On-Line is:

Kenneth A. Williams, President

Coarsegold, CA 93614

The following is a list of things in which you may want to say in your
letter to Electronic Arts:

Dear Mr. Williams,

 1) How much you enjoy Sierra On-Line games.
 2) How you have been buying Sierra On-Line games for your computer since
    the company started making computer games (if this is true).
 3) How much you enjoy your Atari Jaguar.
 4) How you feel that the Jaguar will be the video game system of the
    future due to its high-performance/low-price.
 5) How you would like to see Sierra On-Line producing several Jaguar
    CD-ROM games.
 6) The games you would love to see on the Jaguar (choose two or three
    Sierra On-Line games).
 7) How you believe Sierra On-Line games would be fantastic on the
    Atari Jaguar.
 8) How you will run out and buy Sierra On-Line games when they are
    made for the Jaguar.
 9) Thank you to Mr. Williams for reading your letter and for considering
    producing games for the Jaguar.

In my letter, I will also be encouraging Mr. Williams to make games which
have the option of using a keyboard with the Jaguar.  A keyboard can be
created for the Jaguar and Sierra On-Line could work with Atari Corp. to
produce one for it.  The use of a keyboard in role-playing games help
children learn words.  This is something that Sierra has gotten away from
in PC games.

I'm also writing Sierra to release HOYLE Card Games for the Jaguar.
I love this game and it would be great to see a modem feature being used
in the Jaguar version of this game.

Many people are not familiar with QQP, but the company has released some
pretty amazing games for the PC.  Some of the games are: Solitaire's
Journey, Merchant Prince, The Perfect General, Conquered Kingdoms, and
their most recent--Origamo.

Most of the games that QQP makes either has to do with strategy or war.
Strategy games are always popular, but war games have been restricted to
PCs due to lack of a "save game" feature on video game systems.  Jaguar
can save games on its cartridges so this is no longer a problem in getting
war games to home video game systems.

  >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> MicroProse Inc. <<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<
  ---------------------------------------------------------------------

MicroProse is already developing Jaguar games so this letter will be
mainly to thank MicroProse and encourage the company to make more of their
games for the Jaguar.  MicroProse is supposedly making Grand Prix,
Gunship 2000, and possibly Star Trek: The Next Generation game.  But
MicroProse has made a lot of fantastic games for the PC that should really
be made for the Jaguar.  These include: World Circuit, Fleet Defender,
Master of Orion, and Civilization.  Civilization has already been made
for the Falcon030 so it may not be too hard to convert the game to the
Jaguar.  Since Jaguar can save games on cartridge, it may be possible to
make Civilization on the Jaguar.  MicroProse is also making Across the
Rhine, Colonization, and Masters of Magic.

MicroProse is indeed a very good company to have making Jaguar games.  
The quality has always been good and it would be nice for the company to
make a lot of their games for the Jaguar.

The mailing address for MicroProse is:

Ronald J. Bueche, CEO

 1) How much you enjoy MicroProse games.
 2) How much you enjoy your Atari Jaguar.
 3) How you are really glad that MicroProse is making games for the
    Jaguar.
 4) How you feel that the Jaguar will be the video game system of the
    future due to its high-performance/low-price.
 5) How you would like to see other popular games besides Gunship 2000
    and Grand Prix be made for the Jaguar (name a few of your favorite
    MicroProse games).
 6) How you would like to see the Jaguar voice modem and network
    capabilities used in MicroProse games. (OPTIONAL)
 7) How you will run out and buy MicroProse games when they are produced
