I have not watched the video yet (as I am still at work), and there is no transcript so I have to ask -- does he discuss the provenance of this game? Is there any information on the source or original programmer, or is it just a random find at a garage sale with no additional information?

He mentions "from the Jim Snyder collection" in the video.

 

From video's description:

Quote

ill be adding more Atari prototype content from my yard sale derived collection. From the Jim Snyder collection mountain view ca

 

 

His prior video also covers what he got in that collection, including the Atari VCS Demo PCB that's used for the video's thumbnail. He identified common game ROMs on there like Superman, Missile Command, Hangman, Othello, etc.

Based on this, somebody with a YouTube account should direct him here for more info about the SaveKey and a flash cart like the Harmony to dump a cartridge. I think @Thomas Jentzsch has the software.

Even only a SaveKey would do, if he sends it to someone who can read it out.

Possible candidates:

1) Battleship
Atari
Brad Stewart
Stewart worked on a version of this classic board game (right after completing Breakout) but never finished it.

 

2) "Submarine Game"
Atari
Mark Hahn


3) Submarine Simulator
Atari 
Greg Easter
According to Greg Easter, this was about 25% complete.
