About David Crane (from Wikipedia)
Crane started his programming career at Atari, making games for the Atari 2600. After meeting co-worker Alan Miller in a tennis game, Miller told Crane about a plan he had to leave Atari and found a company that would give game designers more recognition. From this meeting, Crane left Atari in 1979 and co-founded Activision, along with Miller, Jim Levy, Bob Whitehead, and Larry Kaplan. At Activision, he was best known as the designer of Pitfall!. Pitfall! was a huge hit, and maintained the top slot on the Billboard charts for 64 weeks and was named video game of the year in 1982.
In 1986, Crane left Activision to co-found Absolute Entertainment with Garry Kitchen. With Absolute, he was known for Amazing Tennis and A Boy and His Blob: Trouble on Blobolonia, a successful NES title following the adventures of the protagonist and his companion, a shape-shifting blob.

On of my favorite toys as a little kid. This came with a large yellow clam-shell crane that could dig loose dirt or sand. I played with these toys for hours in the dirt outside our house. The plastic windshield wipers broke off the truck so I painted fake ones on the windshield with silver paint. The crane has long since disappeared, but I still have the dump truck.
