During early development, all Intellivision games were programmed by the outside firm, APh Technological Consulting, with 19 games produced before Christmas 1980. Once the Intellivision became successful, game development would be brought in-house, and Mattel formed its own software development group and began hiring programmers. The original five members of the Intellivision team were Mike Minkoff, Rick Levine, John Sohl, Don Daglow, and manager Gabriel Baum. Levine and Minkoff both came over from the hand-held Mattel games engineering team. During 1981 Mattel hired programmers at a very fast rate for these accommodations.
