Actually I believe I met Jim Sachs and Kellyn Beck back in the day. Cinemaware sent some reps to the local user groups, NW Amiga Groups in PDX. Can't remember the exact date however, because I seem to recall they demo'ed DOTC along with I think SDI and possibly some others. I also remember some Cinemaware reps coming around the time Rocket Ranger was set to be released, possibly some other times too.
I remember that Kellyn went off to help run Cineplay, also in PDX later on after leaving Cinemaware.
I remember seeing the screen shots from DOTC and yes I had to pick my jaw up from the floor, they were incredible!!!
