Producer Dave Warhol hired former Mattel Electronics programmer John Tomlinson () to do the conversion of Commando to the Intellivision. John did some brilliant programming (the bullets are not moving objects, they are animated on the fly in the background), but he wasn't big on discipline. As the deadline loomed with the game far behind schedule, Dave had to take drastic measures.
We'd like to avoid the word "kidnapping" since it implies a capital crime, but Dave did drive to John's apartment, grab him, and drive him back to Dave's home office where John remained, living and working, until Commando was finished.
