Call for Blogs: The 50th anniversary of BASIC

Call for Blogs: The 50th anniversary of BASIC

The 1980s was the era of BASIC. The personal computer took off, and many of them came with the language built-in. Consequently, many developers of the era got their start in making games by using BASIC -- which persisted as a popular programming language well into the 1990s and beyond.

Were you one of them?

The language has older roots, and this week -- Thursday, May 1, 2014 -- marks its 50th anniversary. To celebrate, Gamasutra is hoping to get blogs from game developers about developing in BASIC.

Whether you want to write about a game you made in your youth or talk about the usefulness of the language itself -- or anything else that you think of when you hear the word "BASIC" -- you can do it on Gamasutra this week. You can share your story anytime; Gamasutra editors comb the blog section every day to find the best posts. Your blog could be promoted on our front page.

You can submit your stories directly to Gamasutra's blog section. Not sure what to write? Need to brainstorm? Just email blog director Christian Nutt and he'll help you with any questions.
