What language did you use for your programming of the older console systems? Was it some kind of assembly or C?

What was the development environment like? i.e. debugging, emulating or running your code, importing art assets?

I love to hear more about the game industry in that time period.

We used Assembly language, it was microprocessor language. We used an Apple IIe for development, then later IBM PCs. We basically had a system that emulated an eprom. No emulators, no debuggers. I seem to remember that art assets were input into the assembler code manually. Thanks for reminding me about those aspects of those fun and rudimentary times. I have someone who is interviewing me and I should mention those things.
