We asked former Sega Midwest Studio artist Jim Rohn for information regarding the defunct Sega division.
I did work at Sega Midwest from December '93 until Jan '95.
There were a lot of confidential, in-house developments that I don't think I can speak about. We did release an NHL hockey game while I was there.
Sega Midwest closed in January 1995. Several artists and programmers were offered transfers to Sega offices in other parts of the country. I was one of them, but I stayed in Chicago and worked at Midway Games from 1995-2002.
We would like to thank Mr. Rohn for his time. Rohn is an Associate Professor in Columbia College Chicago’s Cinema Art + Science Department.
