There aren't too many games whose designers have nearly had their heads torn off by a pit bull, but NARC was nearly one. "That was the one time I was scared shitless," laughs Eugene Jarvis, reminiscing from the relative safety of his office at Raw Thrills in Skokie, Illinois. "Get two pit bulls in the studio and they'd start going nuts. The cage starts jumping around and they egg each other on. They'd wander over to the camera, and you'd look at their head and think: 'That's big. That thing could bite my arm off.'"
